Placed on his last three starts over 7f/1m at Brighton, and ran well to be second on his last course outing. Blinkered for the first time now, and claims if taking to headgear.
Several creditable efforts of late. Failed to stay 1m when seventh of 12 to Zefferino at Chelmsford last time, and likely to do better now dropping in trip.
Not beaten far on return over C&D in January, and while she's been better than the result twice since, she's been off since March, and remains a maiden.
Won at Salisbury in May for John Flint, but has been struggling to find his best form since, and again below best on debut for new yard at Wolverhampton last month.
Best effort this season when 6L third over 1m at Leicester in May, but she has not built on that in several subsequent runs. Yard does well here, but this filly needs to raise her game.
In fine form, winning over C&D in September and running to a similar level when placed in handicaps here on his last two starts. This doesn't look too competitive, and he should make another bold bid.
Had shown little before recent handicap debut, but found a bit of improvement when 2½L third of 9 to Hedging in a 7f handicap at Brighton last time. Claims if building on that on AW debut and jockey booking takes the eye.
Showed only a little promise as a juvenile, and was well beaten on her handicap debut at Ffos Las in August last year. Off since, and hard to recommend given profile and absence.
Standout effort this year when winning at Yarmouth in July, but has failed badly to match that in three subsequent outings, and simply seems flattered by that narrow success.
Started off well for current yard, and won at Lingfield (7f, AW) in March. Patchy form since, and ran poorly when well backed over 6f there in June. Off since, and needs to bounce back to best.
Still a maiden, but she has run well on her last four starts on AW, and has drawn a handy berth here as she bids to gain that elusive first success. Unlikely to be far away.
In excellent heart despite his lack of winning form this year, and ran well when a keeping-on second at Brighton last time. Best AW form has come at Southwell, but hard to ignore in current mood.
