Her sole success came here over 7f in October 2018. She has fallen down the weights this year following some disappointing performances, including latest when she was sixth of 12 at Chelmsford (1m) six weeks ago. Others preferred.
Maiden (0-13); has plenty of placed form and a proven ability to handle this surface. Beaten 10½L at Southwell (1m4f, Fibresand) and may well appreciate the return to Polytrack and the ease in grade (first run in 0-60).
Improved with each of his three starts, running fairly here (1m4f) two runs ago before finishing second at Southwell (1m4f, Fibresand) three weeks ago. Less exposed than some on this handicap debut and is on the shortlist.
Her record reads 0-10 but she did hit the frame at Ffos Las (1m4f) two starts back when she was third of 16. Was a long way down the field last time at Haydock (1m4f) but can be a given chance on her earlier form. Cheekpieces added.
Came close to his maiden success at Ripon (1m2f) back in August when he was second of six, beaten by a neck. Finished second of 11 at Wolverhampton (1m1½f, Tapeta) last time but was too keen and that could count against him up in trip.
Didn't improve on her three novice runs on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m4f) two weeks ago, beaten 8L into eleventh of 15. Cheekpieces applied now and down 2lb but will need a jolt of improvement to get involved.
Consistent at a low level, winning off this mark at Brighton (1m4f) last month and running well in the main since then, including when third at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) last time. Drops in trip but handles this track and has an each-way chance.
Won a seller at Leicester (1m2f, heavy) last month before finishing sixth of 13 at Yarmouth (1m2f, heavy) six days later. That run may have come to soon and is one for the shortlist if freshened-up by a 46-day break.
An eight-race maiden whose handicap mark has already dropped 10lb. Beaten 41L over C&D when last seen two months ago and hasn't shown enough to warrant serious consideration.
Sent off at 80/1 for her handicap debut at Wolverhampton (1m1½f, Tapeta) three weeks ago when she finished seventh of 11, beaten 8¼L. That was her first for 11 months and she will need to improve. Unexposed, however, so keep an eye on the market.
Returns from a fair absence having shown very little for this yard in minor events and handicaps at up to 1m2f. Hasn't really shown enough to make him of interest and happily passed over.
Epaulette gelding in possession of fairly limited ability seemingly after 12 runs. No improvement last time trying 1m4f at this track and now tackles another new trip. Others preferred.
Has ran to a similar level in three of her last four starts, including when second over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last time, beaten 5L. Did well considering she was keen and was hanging that day and this drop in trip may help.
10-race maiden, yet to hit the frame in seven AW starts. Showed a little more to finish mid-division at Chelmsford (1m) last time but cheekpieces will need to bring about notable improvement. Also declared 7:00 Chelmsford (1m5½f) on Thursday.
