Off the mark at the seventh attempt over hurdles when winning over an extended 2m1f on good ground here last month. Penalised for that success but remains one of the more likely winners of this.
Irish raider was the winner of a 2m maiden hurdle at Tramore (good) earlier this month. Carries a penalty for that success and is an interesting runner on this occasion.
Well held in two bumpers last year and pulled up in two point-to-point maiden races subsequently. Others hold stronger claims on hurdles bow.
Sole success came on the Flat over five years ago but finished well beaten when last seen in that sphere over three years ago. Best watched on hurdling debut following a long absence.
Shown ability in three bumper runs this year including when 6L third at Towcester (good) last time out. Step up in trip should suit and he represents a leading yard on hurdling debut.
Best effort over hurdles came when finishing 10L fourth over an extended 2m1f on good ground here last November. Shapes as if this step up in trip will suit and interesting on his return to action.
Successful twice on the AW earlier this year but finished a well beaten sixth on his return to hurdling at Wincanton (good) last time. Others make more appeal.
Struggled in two outings under Rules so far including when beaten 108L at Kempton last time. Probably best watched at present.
Couple of fair efforts in bumpers but finished well beaten on hurdling debut at Newton Abbot (good) earlier this month and others hold stronger claims.
Placed in an AW bumper for Don Cantillon in November 2016 but has had just two starts since and finished well beaten behind Roll Of The Dice here last time.
