Ran well to finish ½L second in a handicap over an extended 1m at Hamilton (good) in June when last in action. Given a break since and has run well at this venue in the past.
Dual winner including over 1m2f at Haydock (heavy) in June. Disappointing in the main since and dropping markedly in trip following a heavy defeat over 1m6f at Nottingham (heavy) at the start of last month.
Ten race maiden was beaten 11L when last of six in a maiden handicap at Yarmouth (6f, good-to-firm) in August. Changed stables since and cheekpieces worn for the first time are absent on this occasion.
Failed to figure in a bumper and four starts on the Flat to date including when missing the break prior to finishing 22L 11th of 13 over C&D earlier this month. Tongue tie tried for the first time.
Five race maiden finished a well held 11th of 12 over 1m at Chelmsford on her latest start. Previously a promising sixth on handicap debut over the same C&D and is worth a check in the market on fibresand debut.
Successful six times from 55 starts most recently over C&D in December last year. Well beaten in three subsequent starts however and market support would be notable off his last winning mark on his first race since March.
Ten race maiden put a below par hurdles effort behind him when finishing 1L second in a 1m handicap at Newcastle last time out. Races off a 2lb higher mark and wears cheekpieces for the first time on first start on fibresand.
Placed on four of his last five starts including when third over 7f here last time out. Experienced trouble in running that day and races off a mark 8lb lower than when victorious over 7f here in March last year.
Finished fourth on two most recent starts including when 4¾L behind a subsequent winner over 7f here last time out. Interesting contender having won four times over this C&D in the past.
Well beaten 12½L fourth when contesting a 1m classified event over this C&D nearly three weeks ago. Well handicapped on old form with only previous victory coming off a mark 18lb higher than he races off in this contest.
Returning from a break when finishing 23L ninth in a classified contest over C&D earlier this month. Five of his seven previous successes have come at this track including three times over C&D.
Nine race maiden put in a decent effort when finishing 3½L fourth in a 1m hanidcap at Newcastle just over a month ago. Likely more needed if he's to take this event.
Four race maiden finished 14½L fifth in an eight runner 1m3f maiden contest here last time out. Drop in trip likely to suit and interesting to see how he fares on handicap debut.
Maiden after five starts showed promise when finishing 3½L fifth over 5f here recently. Step up in trip not certain to suit and is probably best watched at present.
