Class 5 | 1m 2f 42y | Good to Firm | 10 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:19 | Winning time: 2m 12.75s
Hasn't gone on since encouraging debut effort last season, including when 12L seventh in similar C&D handicap in June. Plenty to find off top weight in this.
A useful mixed performer in the past but not really in the same form this term. Only seventh on return at Pontefract (1m2f) and needs more if to be competitive.
Had a profitable 2019 campaign but yet to be seen to best effect this term. Only glimpses of promise when seventh at Chepstow (1m2f) last month, but top jockey is booked to ride.
Doesn't win that often (1-23) but placed in both starts this season, including on first start for Tony Carroll over C&D last month. Ground expected to suit better today so not to be discounted.
AW winner in February but has failed to follow that up in three starts. Better when fourth at Doncaster (1m2f) in June which does entitle her to some place claims.
Only one win on turf to date and has only really gone close once since. Last of nine on latest start at Yarmouth (1m2f) last month and needs more now.
Third over C&D in 2019 and backed that up with another placed effort before tame 18L defeat at Nottingham (1m2f) in October. Not seen since and best watched on return.
Enjoyed a fine 2019 campaign, culminating with victory at Beverley (1m2f) in September. Entitled to have needed the effort when poor eighth over C&D in July so can be forgiven for that.
Still a maiden after six starts with only some promise. Fared slightly better when fourth in C&D handicap last month but another step up will be required in this.
Very little to shout about at all to date. Returned from hefty absence with 42L defeat at Catterick (1m4f) last month and looks to have impossible task on his hands.
