Dual C&D winner who is falling rapidly in the weights and drops into this grade for the first time. Continued to look out of sorts last time over C&D, handicapper continues to give him a chance, may come good at some juncture; comes with risks.
C&D winner who came to life on her penultimate start building on a good previous run and looking suited by forcing tactics. Shaped better than the distance she was beaten last time (11L); strongly-run 6f beyond her; has a difficult draw.
Four-time C&D winner including this event last year off a 3lb higher mark (made all) but will face some pace pressure today. Came into the race in much better form last year than this time around; could bounce back but far from a cast-iron chance.
No stranger to C&D wins (has three to her name) with the latest coming in December off a 1lb higher mark. Not been in any sort of form including over C&D since clipping heels and falling in January; possible she needs to regain her confidence.
Won off this mark on Tapeta (Newcastle, 5f) in May last year that win providing the catalyst for three 5f turf wins all off higher marks (the last off 61). Now with a new yard her first run for them was below-par; well weighted if finding her form.
One of two runners for this barn her sole win came as a juvenile over this trip on the AW (Polytrack) for a former stable. Plummeted in the weights since then although her recent starts give little encouragement; tongue-tie goes on first-time.
Modest maiden (0-15) whose best effort came over C&D back in February and returns to the scene of that effort now having had her last four runs on turf. Hopes pinned on a drop into 0-60 grade for the first time plus a return to this C&D.
Well drawn to attack (best ridden prominently); C&D winner in March off a basement mark (2lb higher now). Has another C&D win to his name so clearly enjoys the place; not seen to best effect last time; one of the more fancied runners.
Not disgraced last time when a little out of her pay grade (fourth to an improving type at Newbury). Best efforts have come on turf (0-2 on AW) but would have a chance if she can back up her effort last time on a different surface.
