Little promise in three bumpers in Ireland before joining current stable. Same story in another bumper for this yard and was then pulled up in a maiden hurdle over C&D. Hard to make a case for.
Good jumping pedigree and showed plenty of promise when third on his hurdling debut at Catterick. Not so good on a softer surface at Kelso last time and has something to prove in similar conditions.
Best run in five starts over hurdles saw him take third place in a novice event over C&D in January. Well held in handicap company last time and has better prospects in this weaker contest.
Last in a Bangor bumper on debut, but shaped much better when switched to hurdles last time, finishing third to a useful type at Wetherby. Needs to take another step forward, but is clearly open to further improvement for last year's winning yard.
Beaten a long way in three bumpers spread over 13 months. Hard to recommend on that evidence, but he does have a nice jumping pedigree and may do better now he is tried over hurdles in a first-time tongue tie.
Not much promise in three bumpers, but ran respectably on her hurdling debut behind a fair sort at Newcastle. Looks the stronger of two runners from this stable.
Won a juvenile maiden on the Flat, but drew a blank in 10 subsequent starts on the level. First attempt at jumping may galvanise him so he is certainly worth a check in the betting.
Won an AW maiden a year ago for Mark Johnston, but made an underwhelming jumping debut when last of six over C&D. Slightly better ground should help, but still has plenty to find.
