Winner of both starts since joining this stable most recently by 3½L in a handicap over this trip at Catterick (good-to-soft) last week. Bold show expected under a 6lb penalty.
Fair sixth in a C&D handicap on good-to-soft going earlier this month. Hood worn for the first time that day is retained racing off a mark 3lb higher than when winning at Doncaster (6f, good) in April.
Placed twice from four starts this season including when ½L second in a 5f novice event at Beverley (good-to-firm) early last month. Blinkers worn for the first time on that occasion are absent for this return to handicaps.
C&D winner has finished fourth on two most recent starts most recently when beaten 6¼L over 6f at Doncaster (good-to-firm) last month. Interesting stepping back up in distance.
Placed twice over 7f on the AW late last year. Struggled in both starts in handicaps however and is probably best watched on turf and stable debut.
Good third in a 7f novice event at Newcastle when debuting in March. Well below that form in two subsequent starts however and drops back in trip on handicap debut following a heavy defeat over 1m2f in April.
Finished a close fourth in a 7f handicap at Wolverhampton earlier this month. Represents a good yard and is an interesting runner off a mark 2lb lower than for his sole handicap success.
Ten race maiden returned to form with a good third in a 1m handicap on good-to-soft ground here last time out. One for the shortlist dropping back in trip. Also engaged 16:30 Beverley Thursday.
Dual winner last year and finished a fair 3L fifth in a 6f handicap at Ayr (soft) on his penultimate start. Disappointed over the same trip here subsequently however.
Maiden after seven starts and beaten 15L when finishing eighth of ten in a 7f handicap at Brighton (good-to-firm) in June. Tongue tie worn for the first time on debut for this yard.
Ten race maiden finished a well held sixth over this trip at Catterick (good-to-soft) last time out. Blinkers worn on his penultimate start replace the visor worn last time out.
Returned from a break with a 4½L fourth in a 6f maiden handicap at Ripon (good) last month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are absent stepping up in distance.
Put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him when finishing 4½L fourth in a 7f handicap at Catterick (good-to-soft) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares.
