Dual bumper winner that has shown ability over hurdles, including last month on first start after wind operation when ½L second over C&D. Likely to go close again.
Improved in four bumper runs last year, duly scoring in a common canter at Warwick when last spotted. Has joined Olly Murphy and gets the champion jockey for hurdles bow.
Signs of talent in maiden/novice company over hurdles, well held over this C&D earlier in the month in a handicap. Plenty to find it seems now.
Has looked fairly modest in maiden over C&D and at Towcester so far, needs to improve significantly back here and looks an unlikely winner.
Often travels well but now 0-16 over hurdles and the lack of a response to pressure has proved his undoing in the past.
Modest maiden on the Flat, has joined Caroline Bailey ahead of this first start over timber. Should find a couple of these too strong.
Dual winner who was rated 94 on the Flat when trained by David Lanigan, tailed off at Kempton in February on hurdles bow, though did travel with purpose for a long way and has undergone wind surgery since.
Not a lot to shout about in French claiming hurdles before joining this yard, check in the market on British bow but others more likely.
