20:25 Southwell Wed 16 October 2019
4lb higher than when winning on Polytrack at Lingfield (1m) three starts back; perfectly entitled to figure positively if suited by the application of cheekpieces/switch to Fibresand.
Never reached the leaders when finishing ninth of 14 to Makambe over C&D 12 days ago; that said, is also 2lb lower than when running out a decisive 3L winner over C&D in April; a possible player if revived.
Better suited by a test of stamina nowadays (won here over 6f from his current mark last December); kept on well when third to Atalanta Queen (Break The Silence second) over C&D last week; similar place claims.
Won a Chelmsford novice (7f) for Marcus Tregoning in July 2017 before a truncated season in 2018; 0-6 for Roger Fell in 2019 and makes minimal appeal as a result.
Ten-race maiden who is fitted with newly applied blinkers seeking the breakthrough; is now rated 10lb lower than when finishing fourth of seven to Love Your Work over C&D in May.
15-race maiden; placed on his last couple of starts, including when finishing 2¾L third to the reopposing Break The Silence here (7f) last month; his earlier turf form suggests that he just about stays 1m.
Mount Nelson gelding; has shown precious little to enthuse over in five starts for Mick Appleby (1m-1m3f+); easing in the weights on return from a 421-day absence; Fibresand debut; stablemate of Roser Moter.
Three-time course winner (7f); worn down in the shadow of the post by Atalanta Queen (Mr Strutter third) when well supported over C&D last week; 2lb well-in; another solid effort is considered probable; 2-3 for the 7lb claimer Jonathan Fisher.
Beaten a mere 2½L when fourth to Muhaarar's Nephew in a soft ground 1m+ Beverley maiden (66-1) in June; dealt a difficult draw on handicap debut; 4lb lower in newly applied cheekpieces; worth a market check.
6lb higher than when winning a Class 6 C&D handicap in May (runner-up next time); off the track for four months since disappointing at Lingfield (7-4f) in June.
Seven-race maiden; 20-1 when finishing sixth of 13 to Break The Silence (Abie's Hollow third) over 7f here last month; 2lb lower for her first attempt at 1m (stamina questionable).
Seven-race maiden; unruly in the stalls when well beaten (12th of 13) at Wolverhampton in January; has previous Southwell experience (fourth) but remains an unlikely candidate on his first competitive start for 275 days.
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 (0-8).
Nine-race maiden; is yet to turn her hand to AW racing, although did have an abortive attempt over hurdles at Stratford in July; poorly drawn; first-time blinkers are applied; very unlikely.
