Hard to fault the form of the yard at the moment and this one completed a chase hat-trick before being switched back to hurdles. Won both his last two hurdles starts although a double penalty asks a question of him now even in this grade.
One outing in a bumper showed very little and a hurdles outing at Market Rasen arguably showed even less. Hard to make a case for him here.
Has taken a step forward since running without much promise in bumpers winning a Perth novice last time out finding plenty to lead close home. That form doesn't look that strong but it may not need to be getting 14lb from What Happens Now.
Showed some promise when trained in Ireland and running in bumpers and a novice hurdle. Well held on his first outing for this yard finishing last of four and more needed here.
His bumper debut remains his best run so far but he's never really built on that and appears to have regressed especially over hurdles.
A career record of 0-17 hardly inspires confidence and she looks a very limited sort having also been tried in handicaps. Faces a stiff task here and not one to rely on.
Looks to need a lot more time and looks a real chasing type having been poor in bumpers. Looked very much in need of the run last time out (debut over hurdles) and can't really enter the argument here.
Makes her debut for this very capable yard but has shown very little ability or progress in bumpers or over hurdles for her previous yards.
Only cost £600 as a four-year-old and has shown very little ability in two bumpers ten months apart at Hexham and Market Rasen.
