Galway 7f nursery winner back in August 2018 for Kevin Prendergast but has struggled in ten subsequent starts without making the frame. British debut here for new connections and drops in grade but still has something to prove.
Only place in seven outings came in Wolverhampton 7f h'cap last March off an 8lb higher mark. Showed little in four starts after that and returns now following four-month absence.
Poor 2-62 strike rate but won well enough over 1m at Salisbury in August. After losing his way he hinted at a return to form when third over 1m at Lingfield last time and is not out of it if backing up that fair effort.
Yard has won this race twice in the last three years. Disappointing filly who showed next to nothing in her first seven attempts but has done better last two outings. Beaten just over a length in lowly Chelmsford 7f classfied stakes last time.
Very modest form first four starts for Clive Cox and showed little more on debut for current yard in December following four-month absence. May be better for the run but needs much more to be competitive here.
Only moderate but is fairly consistent at around this level. Has won four times but never beyond 6f so stamina has to be a concern. Slow to break last two runs so first-time hood now applied to help the cause.
26 races without success although went very close in Southwell 7f selling handicap in November. Ran badly at Chelmsford last time and needs to bounce back from that poor effort.
Only win from 24 starts came in Beverley 5f claimer back in September 2018, but went close when failing by only a neck in Chelmsford 7f h'cap in September. Out of form last two runs and first-time blinkers now applied.
Yet to reach even a place un 12 starts between 5f-1m. Kept on when three-lengths sixth in Lingfield 6f h'cap penultimate start and seemed not to stay 1m last time. Jockey booking ctaches eye so well worth a market check.
Won 7f Salisbury novice stakes on debut in 2017 for William Knight but has shown regressive form in most of his 23 starts since, crashing down the handicap. Making debut here for in-form yard and not out of it if that sparks a revival.
Placed at up to 1m2f but has yet to get her head in front. Running poorly in three starts of late and drops down in trip and grade here. Hard to enthuse over.
Having his 97th race and has won 10 times in the past. Not the force of old and hasn't really being doing enough of late to suggest he's going to add to his tally on this occasion.
