The Feathered Nest
J: Connor Murtagh 5
T: Richard Fahey
Course and distance winner in May. Currently running from a three pounds higher mark, but softer ground is of no concern to her, and Connor Murtagh now claims a valuable five pounds off her back. Well drawn here in stall 2.
C&D winner in May off 3lb lower; good run next time and much respected back here

T: David Barron
Admirable veteran who was not disgraced in a competitive handicap at Haydock in April. He failed to build on that effort at Doncaster last time out, however, and now has a bit to prove on his return from a 132-day break.
Hard to win with and likely to run into traffic given style of racing and the inside stall

Found the drop back to the minimum trip against him when second here last month. Now running from a three pounds higher mark, and although this trip should suit him better, he is drawn widest of all in stall 11.
Both wins over 6f (one here) but stays further; up in weights and widest draw to deal with

Has run well in defeat this season, but his losing run is now at fourteen. The return to these softer ground conditions are of no concern to him today, but he does need a bit more to defy his current handicap mark.
Unlucky over C&D in June; some solid runs in defeat since; yard won this last year

20/1 winner of a mile handicap at York in June, but he has failed to add to that success in five starts since. Currently still five pounds above his last winning mark. Needs the addition of a first-time tongue tie to bring about some improvement today.
York winner in June and good 3rd at Redcar last month; tongue-tie needs to give him a lift

Winner of a handicap at Ayr on his penultimate outing, but he struggled at York last time out. Does need to find some improvement to defy his current handicap mark, and he could do with the ground conditions drying out.
String of good runs came to an end at York on Sunday; others appeal more in this field

Had the three duck eggs by his name in his first three starts for this yard. Bounced back to form, however, when landing a handicap at Redcar in first time cheekpieces last month. Respected if the headgear continues to bring about some improvement.
Having dropped in weights it all clicked in cheekpieces last month; could still be well in

Not at his best in four starts this term, but his better form has come on softer ground, so these ground conditions will suit. Interesting contender here running from what looks a potentially lenient handicap mark.
Slow ground will suit better than last time but stamina for 7f not assured
