Course winner (1m2f) at the end of 2018 (awarded race) but hasn't been able to reproduce the same form in three starts this year returning from a break in June. Now tries a longer trip but on the whole looks an exposed sort off this mark.
Fairly useful type at one time but only lightly raced of late (just two outings since September 2016). Shaped as though he was badly out of sorts over 1m6f at Chelmsford last time after 26 months off; finished tamely, hard to justify recommending.
Penalised 6lb for his recent Redcar romp in what was a fairly weak race he now switches to the AW in an attempt to follow up quickly. Only one previous try on the AW but in better heart now; ought to give a good account of himself once again.
Well below form for this yard having won last year for Hugo Palmer at Ffos Las on soft ground over 1m6f off 1lb lower mark. Originally tried over hurdles (poor form) she's been switched back to the Flat of late but failed to improve; best watched.
Bounced around a few yards already without any real success (did win a 7f Leicester maiden; second start) with three AW starts for this yard producing very little form of any note. Falling in the weights; lacks the enthusiasm to take advantage.
The other 3yo in the contest the first-time cheekpieces appeared to be the catalyst for an improved performance last time out (went with more zest) over 1m6f at Chelmsford. That win came in a weak affair but likely to continue on the up; shortlisted.
An AW winner over further than the trip she faces today at Chelmsford (1m6f) that victory is very much the highlight of her recent form. Has seemingly struggled at staying trips since then on AW and turf; remains 1lb above her last winning mark.
Took an age to open his account finally doing so in a weak turf contest over 1m6f here in May (had plenty go his way in the race). Unsurprisingly given his previous/overall record he's failed to build on that win; now back on AW, comes with risks.
Modest maiden (0-7) who has run respectably since switching to handicaps without really threatening the principals in either race. Operates off a basement mark switching back to the AW; ran his best race on Tapeta (handicap debut); place chance.
