Stayed on well to land a juvenile maiden hurdle over this trip at Wetherby in March on second start since joining current connections from Ireland. Could be more improvement but this looks a tougher assignment.
Landed Warwick bumper for Nick Skelton in Decmber 2016 finishing runner-up to useful srt at Huntingdon in November. Has undergone a wind operation and makes debut for new, in-form yard. Looks sure to run a big race.
Not disgraced in a couple of bumpers and looks the type to win a race or two over hurdles. Faces stiff task though on hurdles bow but a decent display is not ruled out.
Dam half-sister to champion sprinter Owington and looked as though he may find 2m a challenge when completely tailed off on only start in a bumper at Bangor in February. Hard to fancy.
Two wins on the Flat for Ed Dunlop at up to a mile-and-a-half and cost current connections 38,000 guineas to go hurdling in November. Hasn't really shone so far in two starts over timber but better ground here may help the cause.
Maiden handicapper who failed to score over a variety of distances last term for Roger Fell. Debut for new yard and makes hurdling bow but doesn't make much appeal on evidence to date.
