Only win in 25 starts came here in January but overall profile suggests she is hard to win with and again appears to have her work cut out even at this lowly level.
Veteran who is on a long losing run but ran OK last time and down at this grade has to have a chance if finding a bit of old form. Seeking his 10th career success.
Previous C&D winner but is not in great form although wasn't disgraced when beaten three lengths here last time. Last win came here in handicap back in 2018.
On 28-race losing run but did show a bit of his old spark over this trip on Southwell's Fibresand last time when a respectable fifth. Chance on pick of old form but is a very risky proposition.
First-time cheekpieces appplied on filly who has started at long odds all starts and whose only glimmer of form came over 7f at Catterick earlier in the season. Makes little appeal.
Three time winner here in 2017/18 winter season but hasn't troubled the judge since then. Fair fourth in handicap though here last time over C&D so not out of it and looks one of the likelier sorts.
5f Nottingham maiden winner back in 2016 but nothing since. Placed a couple of times this season but finds winning very hard these days.
Not seen since January and has always needed a few runs to blow the cobwebs away. Last win came at Wolverhampton two years ago when rated 14lb higher but generally on the slides since then. Jockey booking noted however.
14-race maiden ran good second here over 6f penultimate start and duly sent off favourite last time over C&D but could only finish ninth of 13. Proving expensive to follow.
Decent second over 6f here last time having run with credit on four previous outings. Seems to be holding his form well enough and every chance he will be in the thick of the action once again if things drop his way.
Struck twice in 6f handicaps at Catterick this summer. Faded over 7f last time out and not certain the drop back to the minimum trip will show her in her best light. Others make more appeal.
Last three wins have all come here, two at this trip and one over 6f. Won here over 5f in April but mostly struggled after before running much better when second over C&D early last month. Decent chance if reproducing that level.
Maiden prior to winning debut for this yard at Yarmouth in July over 6f. Hasn't shone in three outings following 100-day break and has plenty of work to do to get competitive.
Ran OK after a break when sixth at Chelmsford over 6f a few weeks ago and 2lb drop allows her to sneak into this very low grade contest. Better chance than many and no surprise if she ruins with credit.
