Fair eighth in a 7f handicap here at the end of October. Dropped 3lb for that effort and market support would be notable in what looks a weaker contest.
Run well on both starts since returning from a break most recently when 3L second in a handicap over this trip at Lingfield last weekend. One to note racing off the same mark in this event.
Recorded his third career success when winning by a neck over 6f here on his penultimate start. Disappointed over the same trip at Lingfield at the weekend and looks to have his work cut out back up in trip from a wide draw.
Eight race maiden was beaten 21L when 11th of 13 in a 7f handicap at Southwell on debut for this yard last month. Wears a visor for the first time.
Nine race maiden put in a decent effort when fourth in a 5f handicap at Lingfield two months ago but struggled over the same trip at Southwell later that month. Others hold stronger claims.
Failed to figure in three starts in novice company most recently when eighth over 6f at Windsor (soft) in June. Stepping up in distance on first start in handicaps.
Maiden after eight starts and failed to figure when seventh over this trip at Southwell in a novice contest last time out. Hopes appear to rest on the application of blinkers bringing about improvement.
Four time winner and has performed well on each of his last two starts including when 1¼L fourth in a handicap over this trip at Chelmsford last time out. Strong claims racing off the same mark in this contest.
Victorious by a neck over this trip at Chepstow (good) in August. Held on both subsequent starts however and is worth a check in the market on first start since finishing 5¼L sixth over this trip at Wolverhampton in October.
Ten time winner but has finished held on all three appearances for this stable. Beaten 6¼L over this distance at Lingfield last weekend and others hold stronger claims.
Dual winner over this trip on turf at Lingfield in 2018 but is now on a 14 race losing run. Probably best watched off a mark 4lb lower than for her most recent victory.
