- Bombardier 'March To Your Own Drum' All-Weather 'Hands And Heels' Apprentice Handicap (Class 6)
- 7f 14y, Standard
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Fibresand
Not long with this yard, and improved when winning 9-runner event at Chelmsford last time by a neck from Broughton Excels. Should continue in form, and one to bear in mind.
In the frame on his last four starts, and wearing first-time blinkers when 1¼ lengths third of 12 to Violet's Lads at Kempton (7f) last time. Respected with headgear retained making Fibresand debut.
Lost her way for former trainer Paul Nicholls and was moved on for £5,500 in August. Better effort for current yard when a plugging-on sixth of 14 to Rock Sound over 6f here last time, and step up to 7f should suit.
Below form since finishing second here in January, but a dual 1m winner here late last year, and he has fallen well below his last winning mark, so a revival would not surprise.
Third over C&D in September, but he has been below that form in two subsequent course runs, and still a maiden, so others appear more likely on balance.
Won over C&D in February, and has also won four times over 1m here. Back to form when fourth of 11 to Suitcase 'N' Taxi here last time, and is now 8lb below his last winning mark. Interesting.
Just the four starts for current yard, the best of them when second of 13 to Bee Machine in a C&D handicap nine days ago. That form good enough to win this, and her recent profile is largely positive despite her maiden status.
Long-standing maiden who was not disgraced when fifth of 12 to Atwaar here last time, but he's got a bit to find even on that form, and others are more convincing.
Not beaten far at Newcastle in August, but he has been below that form since, and has refused to race on occasion, so hard to get excited about his prospects.
Has very little solid form to his name in recent times, and although he was heavily backed on debut for current yard here last time, he did not look like justifying it. Cheekpieces on now.
Has twice been placed at Sligo this season, but her form away from that track is not so good, and she is trying blinkers for the first time. Looks an all-or-nothing proposition here.
