18:30 Chelmsford City Thu 28 November 2019
Finished down the field when stepped up in trip following a win over C&D in August off a 5lb lower mark. Entitled to designs on prize money in this contest.
Distance winner, disappointed on latest start when sent off as the 5/2 joint favourite at Wolverhampton over 1m½f. Market likely to be the best guide on first start at this venue.
Hasn't won since a Listed success at Pontefract in 2017. Needs others to run below par to have a chance in this on AW debut.
Busy son of Slade Power has won four of his 19 career starts. Well beaten and never nearer in a couple of starts on turf in September. Bit more needed on first start at this venue but not easily dismissed.
Useful filly at her level but finding life tough in pattern company, including when ninth of 10 at Ascot over 7f in early October and in a Kempton Listed contest earlier this month. C&D winner, one to note in the market on handicap return.
Mixed bag of returns in a number of starts since returning to action in May. Seventh of 13 beaten 5¼L at Lingfield over 7f at the end of last month on first start since wind-op. Shouldn't be underestimated.
Thriving on the AW at Newcastle winning over a similar trip as well as hitting the frame on a number of occasions. Not seen since June and best watched on first start at this venue.
Winner of two of his three career starts when tasting success at Kempton in September following a 12 month break and at this venue over 7f earlier this month in novice company. Likely to give a good account once again.
Made all to win at Epsom in May, and ran well after a break when third of 12 at this track before a runner-up spot at Kempton last month. Bit more needed but enters calculations.
