64-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer Sylvester Kirk. Has disappointed on three starts for new connection on the level and now makes his hurdling debut. Market likely to reveal expectations.
Well down the field on two starts on the Flat recently. Last seen over hurdles when finishing 17L adrift of Whiskey Sour in a Tramore maiden hurdle in June last year. Plenty to prove on return.
Will need to improve on her dismal seasonal return in a Bellewstown maiden hurdle earlier this month finishing 10th of 16 beaten 50L when not unbacked. Clearly something amiss last time out and worth another chance here.
Appeared genuine and tough in a number of point-to-point contests recently. Plenty more needed here but not totally dismissed.
Not a lot to shout about in three maiden hurdle starts before a promising handicap debut showing when finishing second of 15 beaten 3L here last month. Likable type who should be in the mix.
Makes his hurdling debut on the back of a couple of dismal bumper starts in the spring. Plenty of improvement required to land a blow.
