Hasn't run on the AW (0-4) since November 2017; 5lb higher than when beating Limerick Lord by 1½L at Brighton (1m, good to firm) on her penultimate start; her last 12 starts have come at that south coast seaside venue.
Without a win in nine starts on turf since beating Mans Not Trot by 1½L over C&D last October; is fairly attractively weighted (off a 5lb lower mark) if able to rediscover that form; could be worth chancing in a poor race.
Sole win (1-12) came on the AW at Wolverhampton (6f) last August; hasn't been running too badly, yet is beginning to be shown some grace by the handicapper; fair keeping on fourth at Brighton (7f) a fortnight ago.
Eight-race maiden; has produced similar efforts in defeat on his last couple of starts, including when a weakening fifth to Joyful Dream at Brighton (7f, good to firm) 15 days ago; non-runner at Catterick on Saturday.
Back to winning ways with a game and determined Class 7 neck win at Lingfield (7f, standard) in August; 3lb higher; hasn't made his mark back in Class 6 handicaps at Newcastle and Kempton subsequently.
Six-race maiden with only limited handicap experience; ran just about her best race to date at Kempton (7f) last week when a fast-finishing third to Cauthen; further progress isn't beyond the realms of possibility.
Her form in 7f-1m novice/maiden contests doesn't really amount too all that much, admittedly she was placed at Lingfield (7f, soft) in July; finished last of 11 on handicap debut here (1m2f) six weeks ago; generally unconvincing.
Poor strike-rate (1-39) but has some low-grade placed AW form on his CV from earlier in the year - beaten ½L by Quick Monet over 7f here in May; off for 116 days since; 1lb higher.
No real worthwhile form to date (0-6), and was a comfortably held sixth in a C&D classified stakes three weeks ago; needs a significant upturn in fortunes for the fitting of blinkers; opposed.
Has had plenty of trainers during her racing career, moving onto Dan Skelton (hurdles) after winning on the AW at Wolverhampton for Eve Johnson Houghton; regressive for Mick Appleby (0-7); can a tongue-tie help?
Maiden (0-10); comfortably below his 'best' since finishing a keeping on third to Peruvian Summer in a Class 6 handicap at Southwell (7f) in April; revival needed in a new headgear combination (hood and eye-shields).
