Won four of eight starts during 2018 for previous trainer and started life for this yard with success over a mile on Kempton's Polytrack in October. On a workable mark, for all that June's return to turf at Windsor was a tame effort.
Closing in on a year without a win now, though has been largely consistent in five starts since May. Just 1lb above previous win-mark and has to enter calculations.
Denied a Yarmouth hat-trick last time, just fading late on over a mile having previously scored over 7f/1m. Gets 1lb back but remains vulnerable, though place claims are clear.
His sole success (1-13) came in June 2018 over 7f at Chepstow. Has regressed after promising reappearance second at Brighton (7f, good to firm) in May and hard to support despite addition of first-time cheekpieces.
Winning form has all come over 6f, started to struggle prior to leaving Richard Fahey this summer and goes up in trip on first start for new handler, with market likely best guide.
She wouldn't be the most reliable conveyance, but produced best stuff to score over a mile at Chepstow last month. Has plenty more to carry this time however.
Too keen on handicap bow at Windsor (1m, good) in May and got worked up in the stalls on stable debut at this track last week, with rider losing irons early doors. Still early days and the run best forgotten.
Still looking for his first success on turf (0-9) but has won six times on the AW (9-63). Near miss under this rider at Brighton in June over 6f, partnership not to be dismissed hastily now.
Five-race maiden with a pair of heavy defeats in 1m2f handicaps at Nottingham and Windsor so far. Eased 3lb and drops in trip, which may bring about a more positive outcome.
Recorded a rapid four-time over 7f/7½f here in summer of 2017 but remains winless in 14 starts since on turf/AW and last month's Newbury run didn't inspire notions of turnaround.
100-1 chance in three novice events on turf over 7f/1m thus far and hasn't finished within hailing distance of a winner. Massive improvement demanded now going handicapping but she gets in from a low mark.
