C&D winner just under a month ago and ran well when a neck third over this trip at Chepstow on good ground last time out. Races off a 4lb higher mark here and is one to note in this contest.
Placed on his first two starts for this yard but struggled at Catterick (5f, good) on his most recent start. Races of a mark 2lb lower than when 3L second at Redcar (5f, good-to-soft) on his penultimate start.
Off the mark at the 12th attempt when winning by 1L in a good ground 6f handicap here at the end of June. Struggled off this 5lb higher mark dropping to this trip at Bath (good-to-firm) subsequently.
Placed on his penultimate start and finished a fair 4¼L fifth over this trip at Windsor (good-to-firm) on his most recent start. Worth a check in the market on this occasion.
Placed third, beaten 3L in a 5f handicap at Bath (good-to-firm) in June but has failed to replicate that effort in two subsequent starts. Others hold more obvious claims.
Beaten ½L over this trip at Chepstow on good ground in June and is worth a check in the market having disappointed when eighth over the same trip at Bath (good) subsequently.
Placed five times from eight starts including when 6L second in a three runner 5f handicap at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) just under a month ago. More needed if she is to take this race.
Well beaten fifth in a 6f handicap at Ripon (good) last month when returning to turf. Has won off higher marks on the all-weather in the past but is probably best watched as he seeks a first turf victory at the 16th time of asking.
Placed on debut at Salisbury (6f, good-to-firm) last September but has struggled since and wears cheekpieces for the first time dropping in trip having finished 23L last of 12 over 6f at Catterick (good) on stable and seasonal debut recently.
Shown good form so far this season following up a neck victory over this trip at Chepstow at the end of June with two good second place finishes. One for the shortlist racing off a mark 4lb higher than for that Chepstow triumph.
Dual winner show promise when fifth on stable debut in a classified event over an extended 5f at Bath (firm) last month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained back in a handicap.
31 race maiden ran well when 4½L fourth in a handicap over an extended 5f at Bath (firm) last month. Minor role looks likely racing from out of the weights.
Ten race maiden finished last of 14 in a classified event at Southwell in November on her most recent start. Others hold more obvious claims racing from out of the handicap on seasonal reappearance.
