Was back from a short layoff whne well held at Wolverhampton recently, handicapper offers 2lb relief now but needs to up his game.
Multiple C&D winner, latest being in April. Held in trio of outings since, including back here last time, needs to produce more from current perch.
Previous course winner, 1¼L third of 14 behind Quick Monet over C&D 19 days ago and is now 5lb better off with that rival. Big run likely.
C&D winner in February, though will have to bridge gap on Quick Monet and Magicinthemaking from latest visit here 19 days ago.
Caused a 33-1 stir when winning over C&D last time out, defying some trouble in running along the way. Raised 3lb and might be vulnerable again re-opposing rival Magicinthemaking.
Ran three good races on the AW after returning to action in the spring, without winning. Gets some much-needed relief from the assessor after another short break and can give a good account.
Long losing streak dates back to 2017, ran fair race at Brighton (7f, good to firm; 8-1) this month and cheekpieces are back on here; others preferred still.
C&D winner in March 2018 and also scored on turf at Brighton last summer. Lots of mileage on the clock since without a win, array of headgear restored now but others have more in favour on form.
Has winners in pedigree but unable to show much promise so far and hasn't improved back from 15 months off in two spins for new trainer.
Maiden, finished seventh of 14 in handicap at Lingfield (7f, good to firm; 20-1) 18 days ago on handicap debut. Room for improvement back on the AW.
Hasn't shown anything in three starts in maiden/novice company to warrant support now tackling a handicap for the first time.
Attempted to make all on handicap bow over 1m2f at this track late last month but eventually faded out of it. Cheekpieces added, must improve on what she has done so far.
