Has featured twice under Rules so far. He was a long way down the field on his debut at Kempton (2m5f) but then improved to finish second of 11 at Warwick (2m5f). Set for handicap debut where he remains open to improvement. One to consider.
Remains a maiden after seven races, however, he went close to his opening success last time at Warwick (2m5f) when he was second of 12, beaten by a neck. Has gone up 6lb but this latest distance is likely to suit. Big player.
Showed a lot of encouragement on his debit in the UK back in January when he was third of 13 at Warwick (2m). Has been well held on his two starts since, including latest at Chepstow (2m). Is down 6lb and up in trip. One for the shortlist.
Broke his maiden last time out at Ludlow over 2m where he stayed on strongly at the finish to get up by 1L. Has been raised 5lb for that success and is stepping up in distance. One to consider as he looks to follow up.
A point-to-point winner who has been largely disappointing since switching to Rules. He was second of nine at Wetherby (2m5½f) back in January but has struggled in two appearances since, including last time at Warwick (2m5f). Needs to improve.
Produced a promising run at Warwick (2m3f) two starts ago when he was second of 10, beaten by 2¾L. Was travelling well last time at Southwell (2m4½f) before dropping away tamely in closing stages to finish fifth. Can't discount on handicap debut.
Remains a maiden following five outings. He made his seasonal reappearance at Wincanton (1m7½f) last month where he was a long way behind in seventh place of nine. Should come on for that outing but others are preferred.
Prevailed on his debut at Fontwell (2m1½f) in a bumper. Has been unable to add to that since, including four runs over hurdles. He was fifth of nine over this C&D last month. Likely to improve on his handicap debut. Worth respecting.
Yet to score in 11 attempts, however, he has hit the frame on a number of occasions. He looked to be lacking fitness on his seasonal reappearance at Wincanton (2m5½f) when he was 10th of 16. Should be much better here. Has each-way claims.
Still looking for his first success after 12 appearances on the track. His latest three runs have offered very little encouragement, including last time at Worcester (2m4f) where he was pulled up. Has been eased 4lb but others appeal more.
Scored at Uttoxeter (2m) on his penultimate start in an emphatic 14L success. Was unable to follow that up on his latest effort at Southwell (1m7½f). Stepping up in distance here. Needs to prove his stamina.
Has yet to come close to prevailing in his five appearances to date. He returned to action at Chepstow (2m3½f) where he could only finish 11th of 17. Needs to take a huge stride forward on what he has shown so far.
Dual-purpose mare who has yet to prevail in either code. He came home at the rear of 13 runners on his latest run at Ludlow (2m). Has been eased 10lb in the weights. Hard to make a case for on the evidence of what she has shown to date.
