Back on the AW for his nursery debut he showed improved form to score at 40-1 winning a shade cosily after travelling well. Given a 7lb rise for that win he not only has the weight rise to deal with but also an awkward wide draw.
Not seen to best effect when midfield over C&D last time on what was her second handicap start. Eased 2lb and with blinkers now introduced for the first-time it wouldn't be a surprise to see her perform better on this occasion.
Yet to win a race but produced her best performance last time out over C&D with positive tactics used for the first time. Stick to her task well having been headed; repeat performance may see her go close off 2lb higher.
Best effort came on debut at Nottingham (5f, good) in April but all of that appears a long time ago now having suffered two heavy defeats in handicaps the last twice. Now makes her Polytrack debut (both previous AW effort on Tapeta).
Handicap newcomer who looks to have been brought along with this day in mind although this trip (unless strongly-run) does looks on the shorts side for her. Mark a lenient one taking her pedigree into consideration; one of real interest.
Has a rather patchy record overall although his best handicap run did come over C&D off a 3lb higher mark. A line can be put through his last run where everything went wrong; type who needs some consideration if events fall his way.
Modest form overall with his attempts at 6f looking as though he finds this trip on the short side. Ran well at Newcastle (7f) last time (first-time cheekpieces) when making up ground rather too quickly (unable to sustain effort); still of interest.
Went with little promise and showed nothing more than she had in novice/maiden company on her handicap debut over 5f at Newcastle. More needed to make an impact with hopes pinned on a Polytrack debut up to 6f for the first time.
Handicap newcomer who fared no better in first-time blinkers (now removed) when beating just one rival home for the third run in succession last time. Hard to piece together a cogent case on the evidence so far even off a basement mark.
Upped to 6f for the first time on her latest start at Redcar she maintained the impression gained from her previous starts that she's only modest at best. One of two from the yard in this her chance isn't obvious off a lowly mark.
