Exposed 4yo that's rated just 57, comes here off the back of a placed effort over C&D but a major surprise if that form is good enough to take this.
Not sighted at big prices on his two starts to date, and more of the same looks the most likely scenario here.
Reverts to the Flat after having had a couple of runs over hurdles, neither of which showed any immediate promise; likely to find this too sharp a test, and easily passed over.
Sir Percy gelding that's likely to find this an inadequate trip for his debut today; not best drawn either and likely to need the experience.
Dutch Art colt that cost 50,000gns as a yearling, dam was useful and a Listed winner, so might be up to this test on debut; worth a second look in the market for any support.
Fourth on both starts to date, running on nicely at Chelmsford last time, looking in need of a bit further; that form puts him in the firing line here and if handling the track, has a solid chance of hitting the frame at least.
In the frame both starts, chasing home a useful one on debut at Kempton in December and second when upped to 7f at Southwell last time; should stay a mile, and his form already good enough to take high rank here.
Not much to cheer about in two starts last year, comfortably held both times; needs this for a handicap mark where he might be more at home.
Green as grass on debut at Wolverhampton last week, but gave just enough indication there was some ability there; will know a lot more here and better can be expected, and can't be ruled out of a winnable event.
Dubawi colt, attracted some support on his debut at Wolverhampton last month, finishing fourth and showing promise; likely to improve but a little disconcerting to see the headgear reached for so quickly.
Sixties Icon filly that was a very cheap purchase as a yearling; pedigree nothing much to shout about and unless there's major support, may only be playing a bit part on debut.
Well beaten in two starts to date, and the way she looked one-paced over further at Wolverhampton last time hardly suggested she wants this drop back in trip either; others readily preferred.
