Showed very little promise in three point-to-point starts and on maiden hurdle debut earlier this month. Market likely to be informative.
Will have disappointing connections in two dismal maiden hurdle efforts in the spring but there was a hint of promise in his fourth of eight in a Kilbeggan bumper last month. Needs to build on that run.
Winner of his last two point-to-point starts and comes with the 'could be anything' tag on rules debut. Market likely to reveal expectations.
Disappointed on debut on a trip to Perth finishing seventh of 10 beaten 37L. Hard to fancy on that evidence.
Cost £64,000 as a four-year-old. Shaped with plenty of promise in an educational bumper debut at Kilbeggan last month. Likely to be a warm order here.
Poor form in a couple of point-to-point starts and well down the field on debut in a maiden hurdle here last month. First-time cheekpieces unlikely to bring a turnaround in fortunes.
