Has shown very little in three maiden starts to date, including when 21l sixth at Goodwood (1m3f, good) last time. Of interest on debut in this company, but rated high for what he has achieved so far and progression is needed.
Well beaten in two handicap starts to date and most recently was 12th of 13 on stable debut at Windsor (1m, good). Dropped 4lb for that but steps up drastically in trip. Makes little appeal.
Maiden who is still relatively unexposed and showed some improvement when third in 1m4f Beverley handicap six days ago. Remains on the same mark for this and can't be discounted.
Shown little in two starts for new yard, including when a never-nearer eighth in 1m2f Yarmouth handicap last month. Dropped 3lb and will appreciate return to likely ground conditions but much more needed.
Four starts last season yielded very little and was last seen finishing last in 1m Wolverhampton novice contest. Hasn't raced since November and has been gelded but is bred for staying trips. Place claims in weak contest.
Put some poor performances behind him when good second in similar contest at Windsor (1m3f, good to firm) last time. Hung badly that day but stayed and form of that race has been boosted since. One for the shortlist.
Starting to look exposed in this company but wasn't beaten in fourth over C&D a week ago. Handled the track well that day and remains on the same mark for what looks to be an easier contest. Must be considered.
Three runs for this stable and was a flattering fifth in 1m6f Sandown handicap when last seen. Dropped 5lb after that and eased in grade but needs significant improvement to be competitive.
Five-race maiden who has a bit to find with Watch And Learn based on their run at Windsor in late June but has been dropped 3lb for that. More needed to match that rival.
Form shows very little promise and soundly beaten in four starts between 6f and 1m4f this season. This looks a very tough ask.
Slightly exposed in this company but notched 1m4f Lingfield handicap success two starts ago before fifth of 10 at Brighton (1m4f, good to firm) last time. Holds claims in this company but previous runs on turf are a concern.
Eight-race maiden who hasn't troubled the judge in every start. Likely to be the same encounter here and others make more appeal.
