Class 6 | 5f | Heavy (Soft in places) | 11 Runners | Turf
Off time: - | Winning time: -
Seven race maiden finished fifth over 6f on good-to-soft ground here last week. Others hold more obvious claims dropping back in trip.
Improved on previous efforts this campaign when finishing fourth in a 5f handicap at Ripon (good) last time out. Hood worn for the first time that day is retained.
Struggled in two starts this season most recently when 11L last of 12 over 6f on good ground here last month. Others make more appeal.
12 race maiden was beaten 32L when last of 12 at Hamilton (6f, good-to-soft) on seasonal debut in June. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Beaten 13L when 11th of 12 in a handicap over this trip at Bath (good) on debut for this yard last month. More needed if she's to take this race.
C&D winner and successful twice on the all-weather at Newcastle in January. Some decent efforts in defeat over 6f here this campaign most recently when fifth on good-to-soft going last week.
Placed three times in five starts including when runner-up in a soft ground C&D event recently. Open to improvement and holds strong claims despite a 2lb rise in the weights.
Back from a break with a 2L second in a good ground classified event at Musselburgh (5f) last week. Notable runner racing off a mark 1lb lower than when winning on the all-weather at Newcastle in March.
Held in all three previous starts including when 5L seventh over this trip at Beverley (good-to-firm) on handicap debut last month. Others make more appeal.
Placed on four of her 15 previous starts but struggled in a classified event over this distance at Musselburgh (good) last week. Likely to struggle in this event.
Returning from a break when finishing a well beaten last of nine in a 6f handicap at Chelmsford in June. Likely capable of better back on turf and racing off a mark 10lb lower than for his most recent victory.
