Was successful at Redcar (7f) back in May but has been unable to follow it up since then. Has been disappointing in his last two runs but down in class today which will help. Cheekpieces on for first time. One for shortlist.
Has shown very little so far on his three starts which have come at shorter trips than this. Was eighth of 15 last time at Lingfield (7f). Handicap debut here at a trip which may be more suitable, therefore, he has to be considered.
Has struggled on his three starts. He finished eighth of 13 on his last appearance at Newbury (6f) when going off at 100/1. Things may get easier now he is in handicap company, however, others make more of an appeal here.
Went close to breaking his maiden last time in his first attempt in handicap company when he was second of 14 at Catterick (7f). He was staying on strongly on his last start which suggests this step up to 1m will help. Big player.
Has shaped like he has needed further on his three starts so far, all have which have come at either 6f or 7f. He was 10th of 12 last time at Chelmsford (7f) on the AW. Handicap debut here which may help. One to watch.
Handicap debut today following three runs where she has been a long way down the field, including last time at Lingfield (7f) when 10th of 15. Needs to show a big improvement to be in the mix.
Has only beaten one horse in three runs so far. She was last of eight on her latest outing at Newmarket (6f) in a class four contest. May improve on handicap debut but others are preferred in the race.
