Scored on reappearance over 6f at Windsor in April, though not as effective in three runs since and seemingly didn't get home over this trip latest.
Took a 7f handicap in good style at Brighton early this month and since run a sound race (fourth; 5-2f) over a mile at the same venue. Has to have a chance back down in distance.
Last win in November, off since April when last of 10 at Windsor (1m, good) and has undergone a wind operation since. Market check demanded now.
Yet to win on turf in 16 goes (3-37 all told) and was never really in contention at Chepstow (7f, good to firm) a fortnight ago. Has it all to do seemingly.
Running some good races this summer, latest being a runner-up effort at Chepstow over 6f just 10 days ago. No concerns stepped up in distance again.
Huge prices in all three starts this season over 6f/7f and running poorly. Handicap mark tumbling as a result but hard to make a case for on recent form. Blinkers return.
Maiden, struggling in handicaps of late, needs to turn things around spectacularly to have eyes on the prize.
Seemed set to be in the shake-up for a long while at Chepstow recently over a mile. Record of 2-38 not inspiring but possibilities down in trip if building on latest effort.
Just two win in 23 starts, both coming on the AW. Latest success at Dundalk over 6f in April but poor run on turf at Limerick this month. Drops in trip, which should be some help. Not a consistent performer.
All but tailed off on return from a break at Brighton in June (7f, good to firm) and off again since. Looks a forlorn hope and yet to attract any sort of market support.
