A repetition of his winning effort at Worcester last time out is more than likely to prove god enough to land this selling hurdle. This Irish raider is the clear pick on official figures and looks likely to follow up.
Beaten a total of just two horses in four career starts to date l even at this lowly level looks to have a mountain to climb on all known form.
Won 2m4f Bangor handicap chase three starts ago and fell early on last time out over 3m at Ffos Ls. Drops back a mile and switches to timber but looks one of the few dangers to the anticipated favourite.
Failed to compete in four of his last five starts and beaten out of sight when he did struggle over the finishing line. Looks completely outclassed.
Drops in grade and has prospects judged on the best of his efforts in novice hurdles and bumpers last term. Good yard having few summer runners so certainly worth a market check at very least.
Second in two Irish bumpers when trained by Willie Mullins but didn't race again for the great trainer and joined current yard a year later. Pulled up twice prior to third of five at Uttoxeter last time out.
Two wins at modest level on Flat in 1m4f handicaps and hasn't looked a natural so far over timber. This is easier though so a bold show is not out of the question.
