Successful over hurdles in France and ran well to finish 4L third at Aintree (good) on handicap and stable debut last month. Further improvement likely.
Finished runner-up over an extended 2m2f at Newton Abbot (good) last time out. Returning to form that day and is of interest once more.
Victorious three times in a 17 race career so far. Had wind surgery since latest outing and wears a tongue tie for the first time and cheekpieces return on stable debut.
Beaten just ½L when finishing runner-up over an extended 2m here on his penultimate outing. Well held subsequently however but not written off just yet.
Kempton handicap hurdle winner over this trip on good ground in May. Fair fifth at Warwick subsequently but disappointed on his latest outing. Fitted with blinkers for the first time.
Novice hurdle winner at Fontwell (good) last September on his most recent hurdles start. Victorious on the Flat in May following a break and a fair effort when fourth in that sphere a week later. Interesting on handicap debut.
