Got off the mark in a gritty manner at Lingfield last September but was below expectations last time out; however, he isn't fully exposed so it's possible he can bounce back. Best when able to dominate but unlikely to have it all his own way.
A late starter who got off the mark with a couple of 5f wins on turf in April; initially rated 83 on the back of those efforts but things haven't panned out since. Now 7lb lower but needs to better a modest display at Wolverhampton last month.
Built on two promising runs with a forceful effort to win at Wolverhampton (5f, standard, in November) when last seen. Bearing in mind that his dam also won a Listed race over this trip, the colt still has lots of scope; very interesting contender.
At her best when racing with the pace; and benefited from those forcing tactics to win a brace of sprints in the summer. Might have needed the run when fifth at Wolverhampton last month but still dangerous to underestimate from 2lb lower this time.
A winner on racecourse bow at Bath last May but it's been almost all one way since then; plenty to prove after finishing last of nine at Wolverhampton the week before Christmas.
A nicely-bred colt who is out of a half-sister to a couple of Listed race winners over 1m/1m2f; dangerous to rule out on handicap debut and yard always respected with runners of his type. Possible a longer trip suit in the near future.
Set to race from 5lb out of the handicap and has a bit to find with the best of the bunch; 0-5 on the AW and faces a stiff test on his Chelmsford debut.
