5lb higher than when winning readily in a Class 5 fillies' handicap over C&D (good to firm) last July; well below her best in both subsequent starts; tricky to assess on her return from a 277 day absence; stablemate of Jacob Black.
Nine-time winner who certainly knows his way around the Scottish circuit; 3lb higher than when winning at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) on his penultimate start; is considered on the basis of his useful C&D record (1241); stablemate of Morticia.
Suffered a setback on soft ground three weeks ago, but had appeared to be an improving 3yo prior to that when hammering Barsanti Dancer by 5L at Carlisle (7f, good to firm); 9lb higher and must definitively prove himself over 1m.
Enjoyed a productive juvenile season with wins at Newbury (6f) and Kempton (7f) being the obvious highlights; disappointing so far this season (0-2) and easing in the weights; has he trained on?
3lb higher than when finishing ½L second to Never Be Enough over C&D (good to firm) in May; that's probably harsh when you consider that he's struggled to win since last July; ideally could well need a slightly longer trip.
Prominent racer who has been competitive of late in slightly stronger Class 3/4 handicaps, so merits serious consideration with Paul Hanagan booked to ride; due a 1lb rise after finishing 1L second to Amadeus Grey at Carlisle (1m) last week.
Former French racer (Andre Fabre); turned over the 1/12f Al Hadeer on UK/stable debut in a C&D maiden (good to firm) last month; his opening mark of 78 is no 'gimme', but he's lightly-raced and open to further improvement.
