Long standing dual code maiden getting no nearer of late and at age nine his chances of a win are getting ever slimmer.
Long losing run now for this un-prolific gelding although ran one of his better recent races latest when third at Bath over 1m5f. Each-way possibilities again in very weak affair.
10-race maiden last seen finishing third beaten 4¾L by Dreamboat Dave as recently on Tuesday. That one's 6lb pen can close the gap but reversal still unlikely.
Handicap debut went largely as her qualifiers had as the filly was in rear throughout and a remote seventh of 11 at Chelmsford. Plenty still to prove.
Hereford maiden hurdle winner last winter made favourite at Brighton last week so his eighth of 11 was a major disappointment. Not beyond the realms he bounces back in a similarly weak affair.
Maiden of 23 starts but made the frame seven times since the turnoff the year and again ran right up to her best when short-headed over this trip at Brighton latest (good to soft). Surely her turn is due and could very easily come today.
Still a maiden but best form this season enough to give him a real shout here and given that his new career-low mark is 14lb below where he started the season surely he has to go well here. Blinkers could also prove a difference maker.
1m course winner last season is effective over this sort of distances and although he's winless in 2019 he has made the frame on six occasions. Possibilities in a wide open and weak contest.
Underwhelming in last three runs on the AW although this maiden has run his best races on turf including Chepstow second back in July. Not one to dismiss now.
Finally off the mark at the twelfth attempt at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) in October 2018 but been very hit and miss since and far more misses than hits. Not ruled out but hard to be confident.
Never involved latest at Catterick on handicap debut which wasn't overly surprising after two lasts coming into that race. Still plenty to prove.
One of the less experienced runners but clear signs of late with a running in third over 1m2f here in July and second at Wolverhampton last month his best efforts to date. Has genuine claims now with trip likely to be ideal.
Yet to run badly since switching to handicap company with two thirds followed by a fourth latest where she was two places behind re-opposing Cheng Gong. Claims in an open contest.
