Returned to winning ways over C&D last time (controlled a weak race from the front) to take her recent record to 4-7. Well suited by this track (scored here four times); will have to improve again to defy this mark though, 5lb higher than last win.
Only GB win came over 1m4f here but he's been knocking on the door of another victory of late with two good recent effort (most recent over C&D). 4lb better off with Seaborn from their recent meeting; a repeat will see him go close.
Struck form throughout April scoring three times and adding to his one previous C&D win as the middle leg of that hat-trick. Appears to have gone off the boil since then (ground too soft last time); would need to return to his best.
2-3 since he went to this yard (has won over C&D); possibly improved since that win here (over Light Of Air) scoring again at Windsor last time. Looked to have a bit in hand last time under today's rider; unpenalised for last win, shortlisted.
Well supported when scoring over C&D in May building on her earlier promise, possibly found the races coming too soon when flopping last time. Still features on a workable mark if she can bounce back after a longer break.
Both efforts in handicaps of this ilk this season have been poor and he's looked laboured on each occasion (early reminders last time). No surprise therefore that the blinkers (first-time) are reached for but makes limited appeal.
Has always looked a quirky sort and despite scoring twice for Hugo Palmer (in headgear both times) he's not shown anything like that form for this yard. Ran no sort of race last time (hood/blinkers); one to be wary of on current form.
Looks on a fair mark given her pedigree and has already shown that she can pick up a handicap when everything falls into place. Ran her best race so far last time over C&D when only narrowly beaten by an in-form type; hard to ignore on that showing.
Already down to a basement mark and not worthy of anything higher on what she's shown so far; her Flat record now reading 0-11. Would need several others to run well below form having been hammered at Carlisle last time.
Still a maiden after 29 Flat efforts those sort of numbers are hardly a compelling story. Well held on both her starts since win surgery (only beaten one rival in that time); makes little appeal.
