Last start winner in a claimer made it two wins and a second from four C&D starts. Remains just 1lb higher than last handicap win and well weighted on old form. Clearly likes it here and likely to go close again.
Now 9lb lower than when completing C&D back-to-back successes in the summer of last year. Badly out of form in five starts since joining this yard and tailed off at Southwell last time. Best watched at present.
Lightly raced seven-race maiden but has finished runner-up in three of her last four starts. Her two seconds over this C&D are the best of her form and likely to progress for a return to here. Likely challenger.
On a long losing stretch which goes back to February 2017. His last two appearances over this C&D have been encouraging albeit in selling and claiming company. Eye-cover on for first time and may find this tougher.
Last win of 15 came over this C&D in December of last year off this mark. Not far off that level in his last three runs (third each time) and drop in distance isn't a worry. Should be competitive again.
Enjoyed back-to-back 1m6f successes in April, the latter coming here. Struggled off this 8lb higher mark over two miles at Kempton on return and may now be in the grip of the handicapper.
Overcame a winless run dating back to 2015 when winning over 1m2f at Newcastle in April. Remains 2lb higher and questions to answer back up to this trip which he hasn't been suited by in the past.
Gained back-to-back 1m1f wins in testing conditions in April and two close thirds over 1m2f and 1m3f since. Races off a 12lb lower mark back on the AW but yet to place in eight starts on such a surface and first try at this trip.
Has fallen to 9lb below last winning mark but that came back in September 2017. Stable are in good form but he needs to leave three poor runs since leaving Dean Ivory well behind.
4-14 on an AW surface and despite all those wins coming at shorter (all this year) he stays this trip fine. Remains 3lb higher than last winning mark but will appreciate the switch from turf. One to consider.
Sole win came over this distance on turf off 5lb higher, however he's been tailed off in all three starts since joining this yard and hard to make a case for at present.
Has switched stables again and starts off 6lb lower than last win. Yet to score beyond 1m2f and really struggled in her four starts for Les Eyre. Needs to considerably bounce back to form.
