Top-weight who made a promising stable debut over this trip at Lingfield (2m; good to firm) when third to a progressive rival. Doesn't have an overly appealing record on the turf, but should still be thereabouts.
Steps back up in trip after being raised 4lb for her first win in handicap company at Salisbury (1m6f; good to firm) last time out. Only won by a head then so needs to step up, but isn't ruled out by any means.
Regular visitor to this track who is edging back up the weights after a couple of narrow second-placed finishes over 2m/2m2f at this track. Hasn't won on the level for some time and so he has place claims at best.
Not pulled up many trees over jumps and since switching to the flat. Makes her handicap debut, and opening mark is no gift, given the limited level of ability he has shown in her career so far. Readily opposed.
Improvement needed off the back of his latest run over C&D when seventh on return to the level. Been off for 137 days since then so has more questions to answer, and it seems best to maintain a watching brief with him for now.
Irish-raider who produced a promising performance when attempting to make all at Navan (1m6f; good to firm) last time out. Only just missed out on making the frame then, and should be able to go close with similar tactics applied here.
Never won on turf, and she is one of the lesser players after a string of woeful efforts of late. Failed to beat a single rival over slightly shorter at Wolverhampton (1m4f; standard) when she was well-beaten last month.
Performed okay in a trio of fair maidens, and he should appreciate the step up in trip and switch to handicaps. Opening mark seems fair, and he is closely related to the above-average Mekong.
Latest effort on the flat when he finished last of nine would require him to step up by some way. However, he is the sole runner on this card for shrewd yard. Betting may be informative as to his chances.
Respected as he does have some smart form to his name and isn't fully exposed. Still chasing first career success after nine starts, and the marked step up in trip is an interesting move. Watch the betting.
Not so good last time when midfield at Nottingham (2m; soft) where the ground may have been a possible excuse. Had previously returned to form when making the frame on the AW at Newcastle (2m; standard). Place claims at best.
