J: Fergus Gregory

Progressive novice; off the mark at Sedgefield last month (2m1f, soft) and decent effort when second in novice at Ludlow last time (2m, soft); conditions suit; chance on handicap debut.

Schmilsson

J: Sean Bowen

T: Olly Murphy

Flat winner for Andrew Balding and quite useful in that scene; has made a solid start over hurdles and readily justified favouritism on soft ground at Sedgefield; looks to have more on his plate here with a penalty, but unlikely to go down without a fight.

Dual winner over this trip on good/heavy, but finished well behind Ciara Pearl on last month's Lingfield return (1m2f, AW); needs a major step forward.

J: Luke Catton

Successful in a 1m2f handicap at Bath when last seen in October (heavy); that form looks solid enough and a 2lb rise seems fair; six-month absence to defy on AW debut but likely to win more races this year.
