Mark has slipped 5lb since her first run of the season. Latest effort when third at Ayr (7f; good) was respectable, and she would hold definite place claims if able to run to that level again off just 1lb higher.
Back down to the mark he scored off when successful at Salisbury (7f; good to firm) in September 2018. Efforts since then have been poor, but not beaten too far at Beverley (7f; good to soft) last time and he could run into a place.
Doesn't tend to visit the winners enclosure very often. However, he has been in fairly decent form so far this season and was only one-length away from Lukoutoldmakezebak at Hamilton (1m; good) last time. Should be involved if replicating that.
Kept on the go since last summer and not fared too badly but overall record stands at 1-26. Last two runs have been uninspiring and could perhaps do with a little break now? Too risky to recommend.
Has been struggling for form for quite a while now and comeback run was woeful (tailed off) when she failed to beat a rival at Hamilton (1m; good). Others have far more pressing claims.
Beaten four-length into fourth at Hamilton (1m; good) last month. That was an improvement upon previous two efforts which came at this track and he could be about to run his best race for some time. Intriguing candidate.
Consistent sort who hasn't won since February 2018. Last three runs have all been solid efforts. Mark is still unchanged and ran well at this track on sole visit to it when third here in May. Shortlist material.
Longstanding maiden who demonstrated ability four starts ago when runner-up at Chelmsford (1m; standard). Regressive since then and was tailed off at Haydock (1m; heavy) last time. Impossible to recommend when in such poor form. Look elsewhere.
Back down to the same mark he scored off at Nottingham (1m; good to firm) last season. Not ran badly in three runs so far this term, but not hinted at winning either so can only be given place claims at best.
Unable to make the frame in any of his 12 career starts. No obvious reason why he will turn things around now and is subsequently best watched until offering some encouragement.
