Boasts a 33% strike-rate (3-12) and has a course win (6f, good to firm) against his name; pacy, so should theoretically handle dropping back in trip (to 5f); 2lb above his last winning mark; blinkers are a mildly interesting addition.
Enjoyed a stellar 3yo season winning six-times between May and November 2017 (all over 5f); ideally she is best served by cut underfoot; off the track since last December, so is best monitored.
8lb lower than when second in a 6f handicap at Epsom (soft) last summer, largely because he hasn't scaled those heights in four subsequent starts; in a perfect world he would need the rain to arrive (isn't forecast).
Keeps on improving, regularly taking advantage of racing under a penalty before being reassessed; missed the break and met trouble in running when scoring nicely at Haydock (5f, good to firm) last week; the form horse in the line-up.
C&D specialist who clearly rests on a mark from which he'll profit eventually 7lb lower than when winning at Nottingham in June 2018; generally unconvincing so far in 2019 but shouldn't be totally written off.
Wolverhampton winner (5f) last December; 0-4 on turf; can be expected to come on for her recent run at Redcar, with that race being her first competitive start for six months.
130,000gns yearling; joined Ruth Carr from William Haggas for £10,000; has yet to find a positive groove, although his latest run can probably be ignored (on heavy); headgear newly applied, and in this case that's hardly a badge of honour.
28-race turf maiden; came out second best of the Lisa Williamson quintet behind the handicap blot Dapper Man at Haydock (5f) last week - form boosted by Musharrif at Pontefract on Tuesday; running well and has a definite chance.
Dual Tapeta winner (2017) who has tumbled down the weights (competes from outside of the handicap proper); a resurgence may occur at some point but it's very difficult to ascertain when; 0-17 on turf; very much opposed.
