Dropped 20lb during 2019 with Robert Cowell but was placed three times. Bought for 16,000 gns in October and makes his stable debut. His record of 0-14 on the AW doesn't inspire much confidence but has the ability if new yard can revive him.
Made a winning start for this stable at Wolverhampton (5f) but form has been in decline in six handicaps since then. Easy to forgive a poor run at Southwell last time but still needs more for all this his first attempt in Class 6 company.
Showed some ability for Kevin Ryan; notably when second at Doncaster on handicap debut (6f) four starts ago. Make his yard debut after £6,000 purchase and is unexposed on the AW (second start) and the market likely to be the best guide.
His best form has come on the Fibresand at Southwell, including on his last two starts. This is only his second start in this grade and, if reproducing his form on this surface, he has place claims.
Dual course winner (5f) who has been holding her form well in defeat since returning from a break five runs ago. Narrowly beaten on her last two at Wolverhampton (6f) within the last week and is in better form than most.
Won twice here (6f/5f) before coming home fifth when bidding for the hat-trick last time out. Missed the break that day but wasn't disgraced in defeat and can make his presence felt in breaking on terms.
Six-time Southwell winner who is a quirky character but wasn't beaten all that far on his first start here over C&D last time out. Dropped a couple of pounds for that effort but would be a surprise winner given his liking for slower surfaces.
Six-time winner who bounced back to form when second over C&D last time out. Won twice off higher marks in 2019 and can be added to the shortlist if following up that latest effort.
Won on her second run for this yard at Lingfield (6f) in June and ran fairly well in three defeats after. Not handicapped out of it on her previous peak form but her record fresh isn't the most inspiring and maybe best watched for now.
