Bee hit with a hefty rise in the weights after following up promising runner-up effort at Brighton (1m; good to firm), with a resounding win at that track last time out. Vulnerable to better-treated rivals.
Standout runs in recent months have both came at this track. Victorious over C&D two starts ago, and despite taking a backward step last time, he could enjoy a revival returned to this track. Not ruled out.
0-6. More like it when third at this track last time out on his third handicap start. Drops back in trip by a furlong and if able to take another step forward he could well get off the mark at the seventh attempt.
Form figures don't tell the full story since he has returned to the track this year. Never been able to land a considerable blow in any of those four starts. Too much to prove to be considered a serious contender.
Let himself down of late after making a promising seasonal return at Musselburgh (7f; good to firm) in May. Will need to settle better to give himself a chance, but is a player if doing so.
Unable to progress from very promising debut in recent starts. Beaten a long way when fifth at Ayr (1m1f; good) last time out. Now starts out life in this code, but has a little bit to prove so is perhaps one to leave alone today.
Belied odds of 25-1 when runner-up over C&D last time. That was a much better effort compared to how he had previously been faring and he has genuine possibilities off the same mark.
Running well at present and is one of the more lightly raced contenders. Unlucky last time when sent off the 3-1 favourite at this course and having zero luck in-running. Huge claims off an unchanged mark if enduring a trouble-free passage.
Makes handicap debut after a string of low-key efforts in maidens, most recently when ninth of 13 at Gowran Park (1m1f; good). Should improve and market check advised as she returns to the scene of his debut run.
Standout performance of his career when fourth at Musselburgh (1m; good to firm) last time. Benefitted for the application of an eye-shield and holds major each-way claims if reproducing that level of form/building on that run.
12-race maiden. Got off to a fairly encouraging start to life in handicaps last year, but has gone backwards since and is subsequently hard to fancy. Never able to land a blow when ninth in a 14-runner affair at Chester (7f; good to firm) last time.
Not shown any obvious improvement for the switch to this sphere and unlikely to cause the leading players any real trouble. Drops back in trip from 1m4f to 1m off what is a basement mark. Opposed.
Things have gone slightly awry of late (unseated his rider at this track last time out), but he did post a pair of decent runner-up efforts not long ago. Definite player if able to rediscover that form and not completely ruled out.
Improved upon efforts in maidens when making the frame on handicap debut at Gowran Park (1m1f; good). Yard going well, and strong possibility she may be about to put her best foot forward on UK debut.
