Thrice-raced maiden who has looked to be in the need of the experience to date. Poor tenth in 1m minor event at Chelmsford earlier this month and should be seen to better effect in handicaps.
Style Vendome gelding who has raced once, finishing ninth of 12 over 7f at this track in December. Stepped up in trip for this and may be an improver over time.
Two-time maiden whose looked ordinary to date and was only ninth of 10 over 6f here on stable debut last time. Significantly up in trip and others seemed to make better appeal.
Camacho colt who has only shown little signs of ability in two starts. Made AW debut when fifth of nine in minor event at Lingfield (1m) 11 days ago. Needs slightly more if going close in this.
Modest pedigree. Sent of 33/1 on debut but outran those odds when fourth of 12 at Lingfield (1m) in mid-December. Yards horses tend to improve for their debuts which puts him right in the mix.
Poor eighth on debut at Lingfield but showed great improvement to take second at Newcastle (1m) in October. Not seen since but may have more improvement in him so merits consideration.
Twice raced maiden and described as making 'no impression' on latest start over 7f at this track last month. Was expected to progress that day so needs to now but is opposable.
Thrice-Raced maiden. Went backwards off the back of promising effort at Doncaster when ninth of 10 at Haydock (7f) in August. Plenty of questions to ask and best watched off back of long break.
A sort who misbehaves. Fair fifth on debut here (C&D) in November but ugly trait showed when unseating rider in the stalls last time out. That alone is off-putting and wariness is required.
€100,000 foal whose priced decreased to 75,000 as a yearling. By Derby winner Australia and is a half-brother to up to 1m2f winner Bank Of Burden. Interesting newcomer. Market check.
