Stumbled and unseated the rider last time so that can safely be forgotten. However, the mare's previous form is very ordinary and she makes limited appeal even at this modest level.
Very little to take from the three runs from this fellow since his return from a long absence and he's not hard to oppose on form. The fitting of a tongue tie needs to prompt a big revival.
Hasn't won since May 2017 and been easy to oppose in recent times. Did run one of his better races when sixth of twelve at Lingfield (7f, standard) last month but far from certain he can build on that display; remains one to be wary of at present.
Ran well above market expectation when beaten just a short head at Kempton last week and would be a serious contender if he can deliver the same sort of forceful display. This lacks strength in depth so very possible he's up to the task.
Still a maiden and was behind Rebecke when getting 1lb at Kempton last week and no obvious reason as to why he can reverse the form on these terms. That said, he has gone well at this course before and might be good value to make the frame.
Well fancied at Kempton last week but encountered trouble exiting the stalls and was slow to stride as a result. Might be more to come now his trainer has spent more time with him; the betting can guide once more.
Well supported favourite over 1m here last time out but faded to fourth inside the final furlong that day. Dropping back a furlong could be a good move given his recent run of decent form; worth considering in a very weak race.
Brushed aside in similar race over 1m here last week and was also short of the mark when finishing just behind Reshaan over C&D last month. Needs to dig a lot deeper than he has done of late and work to do to alter his maiden status.
The return to 7f is in her favour and this filly, whose solitary previous win was gained at this course, has stronger claims than most on recent form; she's well worth considering at this level.
