Last seen getting the better of stablemate Count D'Orsay over C&D (heavy) seven months ago; 2lb higher mark not excessive and he might prove the pick of Tim Easterby's three runners.

Decent strike-rate over this trip, including two wins (one on soft) over C&D; however, well beaten both runs since last win and she'll have to perform better to win this.

Suited by soft and had conditions in her favour when scraping home at Ripon last time; only 2lb higher, has run well here and is a leading player under Kevin Stott who gets on well with her.

5f on soft ground looks ideal for her and last season's two wins both came off higher marks than today's; last month's return at Southwell (6f) was encouraging and she's more appealing than many.

Looked to retain ability when sixth of ten on his stable debut at Southwell three weeks ago, tiring in the final furlong having made the running; can win races at this level but there other pace to contend with today.

No problems with ground or trip but hasn't been at his best since winning over 6f at Catterick in early summer; will have to raise game if he's to get back to winning ways.

C&D win on soft ground two years ago; added a fast-ground handicap at Catterick last summer off a 7lb higher mark; sharper for last month's return and he's the type to pop up sooner rather than later.

Seemingly aided by first-time tongue-tie when respectable fifth at Newcastle (5f, AW) in October but basically became very disappointing during second half of last season; recent wind op needs to have made a difference.
