Cost a paltry £800 in September 2016 and left all previous form well behind when forging clear to win at odds of 66/1 at Kelso in May (2m good); hard to evaluate accurately.
More or less gifted the race by the recalcitrant Jumping Jack when winning at Plumpton last month (2m good), but ran to a similar level of form when finishing third at Cartmel latest.
Had plenty of time between his two starts in bumpers, but ran well enough when a runner up at Ayr in November 2017. Makes his hurdles debut after another absence, but is a half-brother to the 2m-2m3f winning hurdler/chaser Verni.
Cost just £800 as a three-year-old and not bred for a jumps career; 125/1 and tailed off over C&D on hurdles debut in May; no chance.
Out of the 2m-2m5f chase winner Posh Stick, and a half-brother to point-to-point winner Ripstick, so hurdling (poor thus far) is unlikely to be his long-term objective.
Showed a modicum of ability in Ireland for Elizabeth Doyle, and placed in two of his four starts for this trainer, including when finishing 7¼L third to Kick On Dottie over 2m4f here last month.
0 from 4 under rules for Keith Reveley and also a 12-race point-to-point maiden. Makes no appeal on his first rules start since August 2016.
Six-race maiden who did manage to make the frame in a Sedgefield bumper in October 2017; better suited by the handicap hurdle option imminently.
A sorry tale in four career starts (including in two point-to-points for Niall Kelleher); all sorts of headgear now applied.
Lacked fluency and pulled up on hurdles debut at Perth (2m4f good) last month on his first outing for 18 months.
11-race Flat maiden who tries the hurdling option now after being well beaten in a Ripon seller (1m2f) last month.
Lost her way since a productive spell on the Flat at a lowly level in May/June 2017 (dual 1m4f winner); 100/1 and never really in the hunt on hurdles debut at Market Rasen (2m good) last month.
