His third of five here on penultimate start was his only piece of form in last four runs though fibresand at Southwell last time didn't seem to suit. Others arrive in better heart.
Winless run stretches back to March but has been showing more of late and his second at Wolverhampton last time was another solid effort which looks better with the winner having followed up since.
Ordinary placed form in maidens between 5f and 7f when with David Simcock. Sold for 19,000 gns since last seen in October. This his first attempt on polytrack.
Bought from Stuart Williams for just 800 gns but showed there are races still in her when second, just ahead of the top-weight last time out. Has since missed an engagement having failed to enter the stalls.
Creditable second here last month when she was suited by being held up off a furious pace and hasn't been in quite the same form since and others make more appeal.
Finished the turf season on a low but very interesting back on the AW as he is 10lb lower than the last time he was seen on this surface in March. Any market move would add more appeal.
Not the easiest to predict and followed a fair second at Southwell with a tame effort here. Has the ability to play a leading role but comes with risks.
Front-runner who won twice at the track at this time last year but has struggled since despite the dropping handicap mark and was beaten in a seller last time so does need to arrest the slide.
Sprang a 16/1 shock here last month on fist run for this stable and has run creditable in defeat since at Southwell. This race probably has more depth to it but does arrive in good heart.
Had a fine run at Chelmsford in the autumn but well below that form in two runs since away from that venue, possibly finding busy spell catching up with him. Freshened up by a month off and claims if able to bounce back.
