Modest handicapper whose last two starts have failed to inspire with a drop into this grade failing to work the oracle. One of his two wins did come at this trip but he faces a very stiff task at the weights and is hard to endorse.
Shaped as though he retained some ability when returning from almost a year off in handicap company in March over 5f (AW). Has run poorly twice since though back on the AW; now drops in grade hooded for the first time; C&D winner.
Formerly a smart handicapper (has won off a mark of 95) but hard to think he would be capable of running to that mark these days. Did run with credit over C&D last time, only beaten by an improving sort; hard to beat at the weights.
An unlucky 13 starts since her last win which came at the start of last year over 5f (AW; Tapeta); only win so far. Produced the odd good effort this year without looking a winner waiting to happen; below-par last time (rare try on turf).
Kept busy as a juvenile winning two of her nine starts (both over sprint trips; in headgear both times). Hasn't been able to match her previous form this year and now dropped in grade; possibility that she hasn't trained on.
The only member of the field that has yet to win a race; looked very ring-rusty back from eight months off last time on turf over 6f. Failed to travel in the race and now back on the AW over the minimum trip; far from persuasive.
Her C&D win came on this card in 2017 (won the following handicap) but has only won once since and enters this contest with her losing run starting to stack up. Has a fair absence to overcome; would need to make significant progress to get involved.
