Didn't progress for Ann Duffield and his two runs in the summer resulted in heavy defeats; starts out for a new stable off a lowly mark though and he has run well over C&D in the past; interesting.

Unproven over 7f but he won twice over 6f here last October and last month's reappearance run here (6f) was a respectable effort, when keeping on well on his first outing since wind surgery; every chance he'll build on that latest run and he could play a leading role if staying the trip.

Ten-race maiden but she ran well twice for Mark Walford last October, including at this track (6f); low-key stable debut at Wolverhampton eight weeks ago but she was poorly drawn; better can be expected at this level with the return to 5f unlikely to be a problem.
