Five-time winner but yet to get competitive in three starts for this yard since winter stable change and despite declining handicap mark others appeal more.
Dual AW winner did show aptitude for turf when second at Windsor in April. Lost his way a little as season progressed but now gelded so interesting to see if he can bounce back; capable off this mark.
Lightly raced filly ran two respectable races since sent handicapping. Found runaway 7L winning stablemate only too good at Nottingham latest and should make a bold bid here to go one better.
Below par in four 2019 starts since after winning last November off 4lb higher marks. Signs of a revival latest when a close fourth over 7½f at Ffos Las first time post wind-surgery and now makes much more appeal.
Lone win remains a match-race against a poor 47-rated maiden. Slightly better at Bath latest (fifth of 12) after lowkey stable debut but still omitted from the shortlist here.
Maiden of 15 races now, recent efforts have been dismal at Lingfield and would need a long memory to give her any sort of chance here.
26-races passed by since lone win but although not consistent he has been second twicer at Bath in his last three starts in atypically fast ground for that track. Couldn't rule him out altogether but always comes with the risk of a flop.
In good form earlier this season winning at Kempton (1m) and finishing third of 13 at Bath (1m) but not beaten a rival in two starts after 10 weeks off over 1m2f. Return to this trip brightens the horizons for keen going sort.
Promise about this seven-race maidens second of 10 at Brighton penultimately albeit she was beaten 6L so her latest effort when beaten fully 20L here hard to excuse even if 1m2f was probably too far.
