In smart form since switching to this yard, winning by 5L over 1m here before good second at this track (1m) off 9lb higher mark. Entitled to go well once again off the same rating.
Last win came over a year ago now and well-held since including when beaten 7L over 1m at Wolverhampton last time out. Tumbling down the handicap but needs drastic form turn.
Struggled since switching to this yard and ran to 100/1 outsider status when 13th of 14 at Kempton (1m4f) in early December. Unlikely to bounce back in this so best left opposed.
C&D winner a year ago and second in this last year. Fruitless since but fared better than the result suggested when 3L tenth over C&D last time. Now 2lb below last winning mark so of interest.
Dual Kempton scorer who tends to run well over 1m here. Draw seemingly cost him all chance when down the field here (1m) in December and is unproven at this trip. Merits some place consideration.
Six-race maiden from a yard who can ready one. Not a factor in three handicap starts to date but mark is beginning to tumble and has a supreme Jockey on board. Not to be discounted.
Has some winning form at present, including game success over C&D last month before 2L defeat in messy race over C&D in late December. Off the same mark and may bounce back.
Lightly-raced maiden who has taken some time to come to hand but put up best performance to date when second of 10 at Wolverhampton (1m1f) last month. Still well treated so considered.
Has taken a liking to this C&D in the past, finishing second to Miss Elsa on penultimate start before gaining reward with neck success earlier this month. Up 4lb but is in form.
Had some placed form for previous trainer last year but remains a maiden. Took a backward step when beaten 39L on stable debut so best to ignore at present.
