C&D winner in the early part of last year who looked regressive after that success, and didn't improve for the switch to handicaps. Makes seasonal return off career-low mark but has too much to prove to be recommended.
First two efforts at the start of the year after returning from injury did offer slight promise. However, he has looked regressive the last twice and failed to beat a single rival at Nottingham (5f; soft) when tailed off recently. Best watched.
Hard task from wide draw, but his consistency in recent months has been outstanding and gives him solid claims. Beaten just over a half-length at Lingfield (6f; standard) last time and in the frame once more.
Should appreciate the drop back to 6f after weakening over 7f when last seen. Not in sparkling form before that though, so would be difficult to recommend as a realistic candidate. Dropped 4lb by the handicapper since last run.
Been quiet of late, and you would have to go back to October 2018 to find his most encouraging run of recent times when a close-up fourth at Kempton (6f; standard to slow). Has won over C&D before.
Largely out of form filly making stable debut for yard who are notorious at excelling with such types. Would need to improve on previous efforts, but any market support for her would speak volumes and she is one for the shortlist.
Proved an almighty flop on handicap debut at Windsor (6f; good). 5lb lower now, but he has shown very little in four starts to date and is difficult to place any level of faith in. Others readily preferred.
Came off second-best in a photo-finish at Beverley (5f; good to firm) recently, and had produced a pair of good efforts prior to that. Has the outside draw which is a negative, but hard to knock in current form.
0-13, but her two best efforts of 2019 have came at this track over 5f/6f. Must bounce back after a pair of disappointing efforts on turf of late, but the return to this surface means that is a strong possibility.
Scored over C&D last September. Could only manage midfield but wasn't disgraced over C&D when last seen. Has been running okay without winning in the main this year and should hold genuine place possibilities once more.
Best effort in four starts this season came over only start over this trip in 2019 when narrow runner-up at Carlisle (6f; good to firm). Drop back from 7f does offer some hope but needs to bounce back from recent below-par effort.
Refused to race last time out at Lingfield (6f; good to firm). That followed a disappointing trio of efforts and she is now 10lb below her last winning mark. Hard to recommend in current form in a race where others seem more convincing.
C&D winner last season, but nowhere near that level of form since then. Showed slightly more at Carlisle (6f; good to soft) recently, but needs to build upon that. Place claims if able to do so.
