AW/handicap debut was particularly meagre when ninth of 14 at Kempton (7f; standard to slow) last month. This race appears slightly easier, but she is off top-weight as a result of that. Place claims at best.
Outran odds of 100-1 when fifth at Redcar (5f; good to firm) last month. Opening mark is fair enough, and he could have a prominent role to play on handicap debut if running to a similar level. Slight worry about the form of his stable.
0-8 but her latest run on AW debut when third at Wolverhampton (5f; standard) was much more like it. Needs to reproduce that, but a big chance off an unchanged mark if able to do so.
Six-race maiden who has contested sellers on each of her last four starts. Now dips her toe into handicap company for the first time on what is her AW debut. Three-month break to defy, place claims at best if fit enough.
Handicap/AW debutante who was tailed off in a four-runner affair at Nottingham (5f; good) in July. Not seen since which is of slight concern. However, it would be notable if the market were to speak in his favour.
Dropped a further 3lb by the handicapper after another mediocre effort at Musselburgh (5f; good to firm). Can't be recommended given the manner of his two defeats since switched to handicaps. AW debut.
No better than midfield in a trio of maiden/novice races. Now enters handicap ranks and should be competitive in this sphere. Improvement expected for the drop into these calmer waters on her AW debut.
One of three runners in this contest for his yard, and looks to be the stable first string. Certainly wasn't disgraced when sixth at Redcar (5f; good to firm). Must have claims as he drops in grade on this AW/handicap debut.
Vulnerable to less exposed rivals as he chases that elusive first career success after 11 attempts. Has looked regressive the last twice with a pair of disappointing efforts in this grade. Readily opposed.
Ran in accordance with her odds of 50-1 when last of 11 at Wolverhampton (6f; standard). Form in three starts prior to that run wasn't anything to shout about, and she can only be watched.
Drops back to the trip she made her handicap debut over when an encouraging fourth at Musselburgh (5f; good to firm) last month. Not as good in two starts since then, and subsequently has something to prove.
Took a step forward last time when not beaten far into fifth at Southwell (5f; standard). Now enters handicap ranks off a fair mark with some potential if building on that effort.
0-5. Now has her first run in a handicap after making very minimal impact in maidens and then selling/claiming stakes races the last twice. Can be ruled out with confidence.
Handicap newcomer who makes debut in this sphere off lowly mark. Finished last on his last two starts in maidens. Makes AW debut, but very difficult to see him making much of an impact on what he has shown so far.
