Starting to build up a long losing run and disappointed on his last two starts having looked as though a revival was possible on the back of a C&D third in July. Plummeted down the handicap but now showing little sign of taking advantage.
Had been looking as though she was building up to something with some sound performances in better class races prior to running poorly when last seen. May still be capable of a revival returned to a more suitable grade; well weighted on old form.
First run for this yard having previously shown only modest form for Mark Tomkins; made little impact this year. Missed the break and looked an awkward sort when last seen in July; will need this yard to turn him around to be of interest.
Struggling for form at present even a recent outing at Chepstow (goes well at the track, last three wins there) failing to turn her round. Has dropped back to her last winning mark but needs to show more spark to be of interest.
Modest handicapper who has shaped as if in form or close to it during his recent runs but does have a tendency to make life difficult by blowing the start. This trait has been particularly prevalent the last twice; remains an unsafe proposition.
Dual course winner (once over 5f); finally took advantage of a much-reduced mark when taking an amateur riders 6f handicap at Thirsk in testing conditions. Moderate form since back over 5f, struggling on quicker ground last time, others offer more.
Multiple attempts to break her maiden but the score remains a disconcerting 0-31and shows little real signs of breaking her maiden. Occasionally flashes some modest ability but in truth it would be folly to support her for win purposes.
Long-standing modest maiden handicapper who is far more miss than hit this season and now carries a 0-25 record into this contest. Missed the break last time (not uncommon for him); remains one of very limited interest even in this lowly company.
From a top-class Irish yard; has to be respected but looks one of their lesser lights shaping like a non-stayer last time (7f, heavy) at Roscommon. Her third at Sligo in May (6f, good) would if repeated give her a chance; note any market positives.
