On a bit of losing streak since scoring at Chester in July and failed to stay the 1m when last of eight at this track on Boxing Day. Steps back in trip by 2f but mark is high enough and gives him a bit to do.
Promising sort who has been getting better with each race. Set out to make all successfully with 1L success over Lakeview in C&D minor event last month and looks set for another bold effort on handicap debut.
Racked up two seconds on here and at Yarmouth during the summer but not as good in two starts since, including seventh of 11 in 5f Newcastle nursery at the start of November. Back up to 6f but needs improvement.
Lightly-raced maiden who has placed on her last three starts, including second over C&D. Below-par when third in 7f Ffos Las nursery in August and not seen since. Each-way claims once again.
Yet to add to debut success but fared better than result suggested when fifth in 5f nursery at this track last month. Return to trip should help but needs improvement off of this current mark.
Typically been thereabouts in every start to date and was the same case when good fourth of 14 in 6f Newcastle nursery just under a month ago. Cheekpieces retained and boasts solid claims again.
Looked an improving maiden and gained reward for good efforts when winning at Lingfield (6f) 13 days ago. Not long with this yard and may be bound to run another good race for them once again.
Lightly-raced maiden who has gone backwards in his last two starts, including seventh over C&D in early August. Not seen since and best watched on first start for this yard.
Outran rank outsider status when second here last month but took a backward step when sixth of eight in 6f Lingfield nursery at the end of December. Looks to be a fluke and has plenty to prove now.
