Impressive 5L winner of a 1m handicap at Redcar (good) in a first time tongue tie (retained) recently. First start since wind surgery on that occasion and holds strong claims under a 5lb penalty.
C&D winner has been disappointing in the main since winning over 7f at Doncaster (good) in April. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and market support would be notable.
Put a disappointing effort over 1m behind him when finishing 3L fourth over an extended 1m2f at Chester (good-to-soft) earlier this month. Worth a check in the market dropping in trip.
Winning for the third time when victorious by a nose on good ground over this trip at Ayr a month ago. Raised 3lb for that victory and is fitted with cheekpieces for the first time.
Winner of a soft ground 7f handicap at Ayr at the end of last month. Races off a 4lb higher mark here and interesting having won his only previous start over this distance.
Wore cheekpieces (retained) for the first time when finishing a neck second in a heavy ground 1m handicap at Haydock last weekend. Races off the same mark here and would appreciate any overnight rain.
Ran well to finish third in a 1m handicap on the AW at Newcastle in November. Probably best watched on first start since finishing fifth over the same C&D the following month.
Beaten 1¾L when third in a 1m2f handicap at Ayr (good) in June last year. Returning from well over a year off the track when seventh over an extended 1m2f at Chester (good-to-soft) recently. Others make more appeal.
Placed twice on heavy ground at Haydock in June including in a four runner 1m handicap. Held in two starts since but was a winner off this mark on the AW in January.
