All four starts over hurdles have been very uninspiring. Jumped poorly and beaten a long way at Ayr five days ago and needs to do much better to be involved.
Son of Indian Danehill. Dam failed to win under rules. Beaten a long way in a point-to-point last month and much more will be needed here today. Trip should be fine.
Bumper winner last November. Was in the process of running well on second hurdles start at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft) latest when falling two out. Very much a player on that evidence.
Showed very little in two bumper starts so far this year. Dam failed to win under any code. May improve for going over timber but need to see evidence of that before becoming of any interest.
Milan gelding who has caught the eye once or twice in similar events over shorter. This step up in trip looks a good move and this is just his second start after a wind operation. Likely to go well.
Big prices and struggled on all rules starts to date. Needs a good jolt of improvement to be involved here and best watched for now until showing more.
Now a 22-race maiden and it is very hard to make any kind of case for him on what we have seen to date. Readily opposed.
Possibly not the most straight forward but she has ability. Drop back in trip was against her on most recent start at Newcastle (2m4½f, soft). This trip should suit better and one of the likelier types if putting her best foot forward.
Only cost £1,500 as a five-year-old. Dam showed very little under rules and is likely to be up against it on rather belated racecourse debut.
Lawman mare that has a flat pedigree. She has shaped in her points like this trip is no problem though and any kind of market move for her on stable debut should be noted.
