Fair handicaper in his pomp but hasn't beaten a single horse home in three starts over the last year and is clearly struggling. Eased another 5lb after latest poor effort and is hard to fancy in current form.
Failed to stay extended mile here last time and previous form was somewhat in-and-out. Has hinted at ability and is still relatively unexposed. Down 5lb in handicap and not without hope if getting his act together.
Capable in this grade and landed Brighton 7f handicap in May prior to two below-par efforts there since. Went very close over C&D in January off 2lb higher mark and has claims if first-time visor focus his attention.
Only two wins have both come over 5f. Stays 6f but the extra furlong may be an issue. Second over 6f here in November off 4lb higher mark and jockey booking hints connections may be hopeful of a bold show.
Ran best race yet at this trip when second at Catterick last time off 1lb higher mark. Unexposed on Tapeta so bold show not out of the question if he handles the track and surface.
Won over C&D in January 20-17 but mainly campaigned over sprint trips since and has three course wins to his name over 6f. Slowly away last two starts and never figured. Chance if jumping off on terms.
Southwell specialist but won here over extended mile in December 2017. Showed up well here last two starts before fading and has been eased 2lb. Decent apprentice claims 3lb more but has a bit to prove at present.
Had looked a hard horse to win with prior to rattling off Kempton hat-trick this winter and not been in same form since. Not disgraced over C&D penultimate start when fifth off 2lb higher mark, and senior jockey now replaces apprentice.
Three-time C&D winner on whom a variety of tactics have been employed here over thast three outings, without success. Fairly handicapped if able to stage a revival.
Well bred and unexposed Oasis Dream filly who hinted at ability in two starts in France for previous connections but beaten out of sight in both novice contest so far for current handler. Makes handicap bow off plater's mark so worth a market check.
Ex-Irish mare who won on second start for current handler at Chelmsford in April. Well beaten in two turf starts since returning from break and still 6lb higher, but won under today's rider and return to AW could spark revival.
11-race maiden but ran respectably when placed twice at Yarmouth of late over a mile. Poor effort there last time but trainer has good 17% strike rate here and this gelding may be suited by drop in trip.
