Landed Wolverhampton claimer in March but down the field in two starts for new yard, including when distant ninth at Newmarket (1m, good) when last seen. Claims on best form but a bit to prove now from out of the handicap.
Looked to be back in form when respectable third in 6f Brighton handicap last month and would've been closer but was hampered at a crucial stage. Falling down the handicap to a likeable mark and must be considered.
Consistent in his last four starts and was most recently third of 13 in competitive handicap at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) when last seen. Not penalised for that effort and this looks to be an easier contest. Respected.
C&D winner last season but hasn't been in the same form this season. Well-beaten ninth in 7f Doncaster handicap on latest start and plenty to find from that run, although return to this track is a positive.
Has form figures of 12 at this venue and is in good form this season. Touched off by nose in 7f Brighton handicap last time and only given a 1lb rise for that effort and still below last winning mark. Leading player.
Got back on track with Chelmsford victory two starts ago but looked exposed when third at Kmpeton (6f, standard) eight days ago. Back up to a distance which looks to stretch him. Others preferred.
Busy on the AW this winter but has been running well below form of late, including when sixth in 6f Lingfield handicap recently. Now rated 16lb inferior to previous turf form and has to find more on this surface.

Mujassam (9/4), Seprani (7/2), Big Storm Coming (4/1), Dream Catching (4/1), Chevallier (12/1), Tavener (12/1), Perfect Symphony (14/1)
