Still winless after 21 attempts but looked on his way to victory when falling at the last at Stratford in September. Two starts back since break with mixed results and needs to raise his game to score under top weight.
Returns following 12-week break and usually needs a run or two to find top form. 7lb lower than win at Wincanton in October so well handicapped if he is ready to roll.
Won two low-grade handicap chases in pleasing fashion this spring prior to 50-day break. 7lb higher than last success but is previous C&D winner and should be competitive in his bid for a hat-trick.
Lacks to bowl along upfront and made all to score at Taunton penultimate start off 4lb lower mark in April. Beaten odds-on last time but may be better for his 80-day break and a bold show in not ruled out.
14-race maiden who has had his chances of late but as usual fails to find very much at all under pressure. Dropped 4lb following latest fourth over further at Ffos Las but doesn't look one to rely on.
15lb out of the handicaps says just about all. 30-race maiden who has been well beaten all starts this season and appears a most unlikely winner.
