Off the mark on bottomless ground at Lingfield last time out. Carries a penalty here and may not find things as easy but is progressive and should run well.
Impressive winner at Taunton last tie out when justifying odds-on favouritism by 31L. Carries a penalty but had shaped with promise on previous starts and every chance he can pick up a second win over hurdles here. Ground/trip fine.
Failed to complete two starts so far this season having shown ability as a juvenile hurdler last term. Still 0-7 and has plenty to prove at this level.
Down the field in two bumpers and a novice hurdle to date. Unlikely to seriously factor in a race in this sphere unless showing significant improvement.
