Virtually pulled up when tailed off in three-runner 2m Beverley handicap last time and better judged on previous third at Doncaster over 1m4f off 2lb higher mark two weeks ago. Not out of it if able to bounce back and does stay 1m6f.
C&D winner beaten 4L into third off this revised mark when attempting a C&D double last time out. Handicapper may have his measure but could still make the frame.
Won well over 2m at Lingfield in January before finishing fifth of 13 over the same trip at Kempton two weeks later. Had a break since and that combined with his less than compelling turf record reason enough to look elsewhere.
Placed bitterly disappointing effort over C&D firmly behind him when scoring in comfortable style at Beverley (1m4f; good to firm) but will need to do similar here after last at Ripon under a penalty three days later.
Handicap debut at Pontefract latest when second of eight over 1m4f was a career-best effort for this maiden of four starts. Looked a stayer there so step up to 1m6f expected to suit well and every chance therefore that she can go one better.
1m4f Beverley winner in May looked well worth a go at this trip on a few occasions so fifth of eight first time over it at Nottingham was ultimately disappointing. Not totally ruling out a much improved effort now.
Long-standing maiden's day will surely soon come now based on his second of 15 over today's trip at Nottingham when off this career-low mark for the first time. Leading claims if arriving in same vein of form.
Made little impression in four races at up to 1m4f for Roger Charlton. Tackles a new trip for stable debut and wears a hood for the first time.
Hard to know what his favourite trip is having looked one paced when fourth over 1m4f and a remote third latest over 2m. Others more compelling.
