Two 5f wins this winter and he has gone close off this mark since the second of them; last two runs need bettering, however, and 5f perhaps suits him better.

Should be making more of a splash than he has been off his reduced mark; runs such as his Newcastle fourth in January bring him into the picture though and a change of headgear could give him a lift.

Hard to win with and although he's operating off a reduced mark, he remains vulnerable for win purposes; was staying on over 6f last week but still has something to prove over this far; down in class at least.

Two wins at Chelmsford in November, following her easy maiden win with a ready success in a 6f handicap a fortnight later; strong favourite to complete a hat-trick back at Chelmsford 26 days ago but she didn't look to have any excuses in finishing third; still early days for her but she will need a career best to come out on top this time.

Won three times at Chelmsford when trained by James Tate; the return to AW has prompted further progress for her new stable and having seen off Aramis Grey at Wolverhampton she ran on well to score at Newcastle on New Year's Day; latest 3lb rise unlikely to prove beyond her.

Not disgraced in three runs this winter without quite finding his very best form; much better draw today than the last twice, however, and Benoit De La Sayette's claim helps matters; one to consider.

Runner-up over C&D on his second start for this yard and he's now 3lb lower; passed the line full of running having endured a nightmare passage in a 5f handicap at Lingfield three weeks ago (travelled strongly) and he's ready to win on that evidence; well drawn and one to take very seriously.

He has enjoyed a fine winter, winning five times (including C&D), but he turned in a rare poor effort at Chelmsford 12 days ago; needs a full revival to defy this mark.

He had dropped a long way in the weights prior to winning at Wolverhampton in January; two more wins since, including Pontefract on Monday (5f, soft); disappointed behind Tyger Bay on Wednesday though and he's drawn widest.

Five wins for his former yard, including over C&D in September off a 5lb lower mark; sold for 16,000gns in October; appeals as the type Ruth Carr will do well with and interesting to see if there's market confidence behind him back from his break.

Recorded his fifth AW win when scoring at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) on his reappearance but he failed to back that up at Windsor 18 days ago; that took his turf record to 2-40 and he has something to prove again after that 11l defeat.
