Had a generally prolific and consistent year - winning four times - but put in regressive performance when third of five at Epsom (1m2f, heavy) in late September. More required on recent form levels.
Dual winner in the spring but not the same sort since. Only 12th in 1m2f handicap when last seen at Newmarket in July. Hood is turned to but plenty to prove now.
1m2f winner at Windsor two starts ago before never nearer seventh at York (1m2f) last month. That form looks strong though and may have better chance in easier contest.
Useful filly in France and made creditable British debut when sixth in 1m2f Newmarket handicap earlier this month. Could come on more and does remain unexposed.
Sole win came in the mud at Chester (1m2f) in July but below form since on rattling fast ground. Each-way player back on slow ground.
Improved since being gelded, winning at Pontefract before second to Sandret in C&D novice last time out. Better off with that rival now and goes on soft, player.
Promising since switching to this yard and posted career best when winning novice at Hamilton (1m, soft) last month. Pitched into handicap company now and could be well-weighted.
Unexposed sort. Ended run of consistent efforts in defeat with game success in 1m2f Redcar handicap earlier this month. That was an easy contest though and has to step up again from 4lb out of the handicap.
