Ran well to finish 7L third in a 1m handicap at Sandown (good) on his penultimate start. Disappointing sixth over an extended 7f at Chester (good-to-soft) last time out and is worth a check in the market on AW debut.
Well beaten in two starts since returning from a short break including over 1m2f at Sandown (good) last time out. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained dropping in trip.
Completed a four-timer with victory by a head over 7f here last month. Raised 3lb for that victory and is a leading contender having won over this C&D in June.
Struggled in three starts since winning over this C&D in May. Races off a mark 5lb higher than for that victory and others appear to hold stronger claims.
Broke his maiden when winning by 2L at Musselburgh (1m1f, good-to-firm) in May. Decent efforts in two handicap starts subsequently including when 5¼L fourth of six over 1m at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) early last month.
Well beaten 11th of 14 in an amateur riders event at Leicester (7f, good-to-soft) in June when returning from a break. Market support would be notable with a top apprentice booked to ride.
Dual C&D winner in the spring including by 1L at the start of April. Held in three subsequent starts including behind Nezar over this C&D in May.
Good effort in finishing runner-up in a 1m handicap at Kempton last month. Returning from a break that day and is one to note having filled the same position over this C&D on his penultimate start.
Twice a winner including over this C&D in April. Disappointed in two turf starts since winning by a neck over 1m at Newcastle in June. Races off the same mark here and return to the AW is in her favour.
C&D winner but held in five outings since having wind surgery earlier this year including when beaten 5¼L in finishing seventh of nine at Pontefract (good) last week. Races off a mark 5lb lower than when winning over 7f here last December.
Beaten just 1½L when finishing fourth in a 7f handicap here last month. Returning from a break that day and is a notable runner receiving weight from all of her rivals.
