Has shown relatively little in five starts towards the end of a summer jumping campaign last season. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required improvement here.
Modest novice hurdler but may be on a handy handicap mark currently. Not one to totally leave out of calculations.
Has been slightly disappointing over hurdles so far given he won his only bumper. Has failed to complete in three of his six starts. Looks a tall order on form shown.
Second of six runners beaten ¾L in a Fakenham selling hurdle earlier this month when claimed out of the Nick Littmoden yard. Tough ask on stable debut.
Lightly raced gelding who is on to his third trainer following spells with Malcolm Jefferson and Donald McCain. Will need to improve to figure.
Struggled since returning to the track in February and now finds himself 14lbs lower than his initial handicap rating but requires a market check from in form stable.
Well beaten in three previous hurdle starts before below-par displays over the larger obstacles. Hard to fancy despite appearing in first time visor.
Failed to build on a promising run at Sedgefield last time out when pulling up following a shuddering mistake at the same track in March. Wind operation since and worth a market check in this company.
