C&D winner in the past and at Chelmsford in November. Ran well off 3lb higher mark when third over C&D on latest start and could do better after lenient 1lb drop in the handicap.
Form had been generally in and out but running with credit this season including 1L third over 7f here on latest start. Ran well off this mark in the past and makes some each-way appeal.
Last win came at Chelmsford in May but form has been a bit in and out since. Returned to good level last time out however when third over C&D on New Year's Eve but has a wide enough draw in this.
Has been poor since switching to two trainers since leaving Jo Hughes, including 8L ninth on stable debut here (7f) last month. Ha plenty to find against some rivals in good form.
Landed two C&D sellers a year ago but on a barren run since then. 6L eighth in very weak handicap at Newcastle (1m) last time out and makes limited appeal on stable debut.
Produced a good effort when second over 7f here on penultimate start before finishing 2L fourth in C&D handicap last month. In a competitive contest for this and makes little each-way appeal.
Losing run nearly goes back two years now and yet to really show that will change and found 5f too sharp here on latest start. Age may be catching up with him so others are preferred.
Winning veteran at this track but looking well-held as of late, including 4L eighth of nine over 5f here earlier this month. Work to do on that form if he is to go close.
