Hasn't won since switching to this yard but been knocking on the door on last two starts including second over C&D before third over 6f. Back up in trip today and respected despite giving weight all round.
Last win came at Chepstow in June and wasn't beaten far at Bath (1m) two starts ago. Not so good at Ffos Las since but remains on competitive mark for AW debut.
Two-time winner last year who hasn't been firing on all cylinders this season including regressive ninth in 1m Chelmsford handicap last time out. Best watched on current form.
Generally running well in defeat since joining this yard but bombed out with 15L defeat at Brighton (1m) on latest start. Not given any leniency by the handicapper so more is needed.
Still a maiden after five starts but signs of improvement since switching to this yard, including good third at Wolverhampton (7f) four days ago. Quick turnaround but no reason why she can't progress again.
Brighton winner off 3lb higher in 2018 but nowhere near that level of form this season and latest ninth in 7f Lingfield handicap offers limited appeal at the moment.
Back to winning ways in Class 7 event at Lingfield in August but well held since back in this company, including 5L sixth over 1m at Chelmsford last month. Looks quite hard to place at the moment.
Shock winner of similar 1m at Brighton at the start of August but well held off higher mark since, including sixth at that venue last month. Dropped 1lb and is a C&D winner in the past though.
No wins from nine starts and took a backward step when weakening sixth in 1m Chepstow handicap at the end of August. 3lb drop suggests she is being given a chance by the handicapper but way off it on current form.
Career best came when third over C&D in September 2016. Not seen since pulling up at Chelmsford in November of that year so has a mammoth absence to overcome.
Well beaten in every start to date, including 22L last of six at Bath (5f) and this represents a massive step up. Impossible to fancy from out of the handicap.
Remains a maiden and not shown any reasonable signs of changing that on recent efforts. Tough ask from 1lb out of the handicap.
Sent off rank outsider on every start to date and latest 43L defeat at Leicester towards the end of July gives her all but no chance of landing a blow.
Finished down the field in each start to date including 18L 10th over C&D in August. Plenty required on handicap debut.
