9st 8lb

J: Harry Davies

T: Hugo Palmer

0-12 since winning Musselburgh debut last April and he beat only one rival in C&D handicap latest; takes a big drop back in grade but he's hard to predict and others are more convincing; first-time visor replaces cheekpieces.

J: Adam Farragher

T: Hugo Palmer

Beaten 11 times since his winning debut at Musselburgh last April; he's run to a fair level in all three AW runs this winter but more will be needed to take this; tongue-tie now joins the cheekpieces.

9st 7lb

J: Jason Hart

T: Hugo Palmer

0-10 since his successful debut last April, though he has run creditably in defeat lately as when fourth of seven at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack; first start since being gelded) last month (third has won since); cheekpieces given a go and return to 5f shouldn't be an issue, but others are more persuasive.

9st 9lb

J: Jason Hart

T: Hugo Palmer

Still to add to his debut success last spring but he was often highly tried and proved consistent rather than progressive; gelded after last month's Kempton third; needs to pull out more to take this.
