Performed well when 3L third in a 1m1f handicap at Goodwood (good) in August. Visor worn for the first time when disappointing over hurdles subsequently is replaced with cheekpieces for this event.
Well beaten fifth of six in a firm ground 1m2f handicap at Bath last month. Probably best watched racing off a mark 2lb higher than when winning over this C&D in June.
Beaten 25L when fourth in a small field 1m4f handicap at Pontefract (good-to-soft) recently. Others hold strong claims on this occasion.
Run well on both starts since joining this yard including when 2L fifth over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) in August. Of interest on return from a short break.
Victorious three times to date including by a nose in a C&D handicap on good-to-firm ground early last month. Decent effort when 5L fourth over hurdles at Plumpton (2m, good-to-firm) on only subsequent start.
Signs of ability in three starts in novice company but finished a well beaten eighth upped to an extended 1m5f on handicap debut at Chelmsford last month. Drop in trip a positive with cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Placed third on two most recent starts including on the AW over 1m4f at Kempton a week ago. Races off the same mark here and is worth a check in the market in this contest.
Finished a decent fourth in a 1m4f handicap on the AW at Kempton just over a month ago. Visor tried off a mark 2lb higher than for his only previous victory.
Dual winner on the Flat in Germany including over this trip on good ground. Gelded since latest start and market support would be notable on stable debut.
Placed on all four starts since winning over this trip at Chepstow (good) on seasonal debut in July. Notable runner off a mark 1lb higher than when finishing runner-up at Thirsk (1m4f, good-to-firm) last start.
Beaten just 1½L when fourth in a 1m2f handicap at Sandown (good) last time out. Races off the same mark here and is interesting on her first start at this track.
Dual winner in August including over 1m4f on good-to-firm ground at this venue. Put a below par effort over this C&D behind her when 2L fifth at Sandown (1m2f, good) last month and market support would be notable.
Well beaten in three maiden races over 1m2f in Ireland in April most recently at Naas (good-to-yielding). Worth a check in the market on handicap debut following a break.
Fair seventh in a 1m2f handicap on the AW at Chelmsford last time out. Dropped 3lb for that effort and has won off higher marks here in the past.
Maiden after ten starts and struggled in two outings since finishing third over this trip at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) in June. Probably best watched on first start back from a break.
