16:50 Plumpton Mon 12 March 2018
Disappointing at times in four starts over timber for previous yard, including when supported, and lost his way on the Flat during 2017. Pulled up at Fontwell on debut for this yard last month.
Collected a three-runner bumper on fast ground at Wincanton last season and much the best of hurdling efforts on handicap bow at Huntingdon last time over 2m4½f off opening mark of 94 when narrowly denied. Down in trip.
Twice placed at Taunton over hurdles lately, appearing to appreciate the step up to 2m3f there last month when racing prominently. Not certain to be suited down to the minimum again.
Has some useful course form over variety of trips, including narrow defeat over C&D in December off a mark of 88. Pulled up here last month over 3m trip and rather plagued by inconsistency.
Still a maiden over hurdles after 18 attempts, this veteran was well held when unseating his rider at Fakenham last time (2m soft). Needs to find plenty more.
Showed bits of promise in handicaps but lost her way last term with softer ground probably her undoing. Belated seasonal return and looks up against it.
An 18-race maiden who has shown little ability in either code so far, including last month at Huntingdon (2m4½f, soft) on return from two-year hiatus.
