Added to her five C&D wins when scoring at Newcastle last month and she backed that up with a good second back here last Friday; on same mark on this drop back in grade and she should be in the thick of things again.

Her first five wins came over C&D but she got back on the scoresheet over 1m2f at Newcastle two weeks ago; that was a narrow success but she battled well to justify support and is only 2lb higher on her return to this track; key player.

Veteran who is 3-9 around here with his last success coming in a 0-50 classified event over C&D a year ago; just beaten in a similar contest back here (1m4f) on his penultimate start and easy to forgive his latest effort at Southwell where he gave away a lot of ground at the start; player.

10yo who scored at Redcar (1m6f) in August and was runner-up at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) on penultimate start; plenty of similar form this season (not quite so good on latest start) and he's not dismissed but this is his shortest trip since March.

Has proved unreliable but he's going through a good spell of late, scoring at Redcar (1m6f) in August and runner-up at Thirsk (1m4f) eight days ago; this C&D scorer ought to be in the shake-up once more.

Ran his best race on the AW at the fourth attempt when fourth of 12 at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) last time; has only managed to win one of his last 31 starts, but that did come off this mark under Becky Smith (record aboard him reads 1326) at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm) last summer; each-way claims at least.

Form & Verdict
0-23 when trained in Ireland but, having been off for 139 days, he didn't run badly when a staying-on fifth of nine on stable debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta; 66-1) last month; shaped then as though worth a go over this sort of trip and could be given an each-way squeak if he stays.
