Scored at the fifth time of asking at Kempton (1m) before appearing to fail to stay 1m1f next time. Showed a good attitude when scoring over slightly shorter at Wolverhampton last time. Up 4lb and looks a player if handling Fibresand.
Dropped back to 6f to score here on his handicap debut in December, when 7lb lower. Did his best work late there, so this return to 7f should not be a concern, and he should go very close.
Form has been tailing off in recent times. Did at least make the frame last time out, his second run for this trainer, at Newcastle (7f). Now makes Fibresand debut, but hard to fancy on recent evidence.
0-5 so far. No better than reasonable form on his most recent start at Kempton (7f). Now makes Fibresand debut, but much more needed if it is to be a successful one.
Has put in a couple of promising performances over this trip in two of her last three starts, the middle one (over 1m) perhaps stretching her stamina too far. Has been allotted a workable initial mark here and is interesting on her Fibresand debut.
Arrives in cracking form since joining this stable. Dropped back to this trip to score over C&D on Friday, and won with a fair bit in hand. Has to shoulder a penalty, but looks well worth short-listing again.
Took a step in the right direction on his handicap debut at Kempton (6f) latest. Back up in trip and needs significantly more to make this Fibresand debut a winning one.
Well held in all three starts so far, twice over 6f at Lingfield and once over that trip here. Pedigree suggests that this step up in trip should help. Cheekpieces may also induce some improvement and he does have a workable mark. Interesting.
Only moderate form so far. Was fifth on her handicap debut at Chelmsford (7f) a couple of starts ago. Switches to this surface for the first time, with headgear now fitted, but can only watch at present.
Didn't get a traffic-free run in a Wolverhampton seller (7f) latest, so may have finished closer than fifth. Now makes the switch to this surface, so has to prove she can handle it, and this is a tougher race.
Aside from his debut last April, he has shown little of interest for punters since, and has finished last on both starts this calendar year. Others readily preferred.
