Six-time winner appeared regressive in 2018 and had just one start this term for new yard when midfield at Ripon. Could come forward now fitness-wise but others more compelling.
Decent performer for Roger Fell but seemed to lose his way and four races for this yard continue a theme of apparent regression even though his Catterick fifth latest was the best race of the quartet.
Five-time course winner not in great form of late at Wolverhampton but is now 6lb lower than his win here early in the year so not ruling out a Fibresand revival.
Impressive winner here over 7f when last visiting the track. Well held on turf more recently from 1m-1m2f but suspect this mark is well within range now back on the Fibresand so he has leading claims.
1m1f Yarmouth winner narrowly touched off latest over 1m at Ffos Las. Well held on only AW start at Lingfield but that as an 80/1 chance. Yet to run a bad race in handicaps and could be too progressive for these.
Pontefract winner in August changed hands twice since and ran twice since, both with little gusto. Has won here over 5f albeit three years ago but last two efforts dampen enthusiasm.
Off the mark at Thirsk when making all two starts back before running well when third at Wolverhampton. First race here but looks to be on the up so could easily be involved if as effective on the unique surface.
Dual course winner on her first two visits without matching that form when returned here since. Well below form on her first try on turf over 1m at Yarmouth recently (didn't quite last home); slipped below her last winning mark on Fibresand, player.
At home on this surface having won twice here (once over this trip); has struggled of late though including back on Fibresand latest; would need others to falter.
50/1 Chepstow second latest literally came out of nowhere with no prior positives in his formbook. Interesting to see if he can back that up now on Fibresand debut.
Five races to date provide little persuasive evidence and has been particularly underwhelming in two ordinary handicaps so can't be fancied here.
