12 race maiden ran well to finish third over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) on his return to hurdles and handicap debut last time out. Remains open to improvement and is considered once more.
Returned to form with a close third over 2m4f at Uttoxeter (good) last time out. Races off a 2lb higher mark and slight drop in trip shouldn't inconvenience too much.
Returning from a break when beaten 11L into fifth at Uttoxeter (2m, good) at the start of this month. Interesting runner racing off a 3lb lower mark.
Placed on the Flat earlier this year for previous yard and a couple of fair efforts in handicap hurdles since joining this stable. Beaten 15L over 2m4f at Ffos Las (good) last time and worth a check in the market.
Sole success in 30 career starts came on the Flat in 2016. Well beaten in first time cheekpieces (hood worn twice without success in 2014 returns here) last time out and probably best watched at present.
Disappointing in point-to-point company this year and it's been a similar story back under Rules on his two most recent outings. Probably best watched at present.
Beaten 9L over an extended 1m7f at Towcester (good-to-firm) in May when returning from a break. Beaten 30L subsequenlty however and interesting to see how she fares.
Improving with racing since returning from a break and finished a good third over 2m4f at Uttoxeter (good) a month ago. Trip and ground are in his favour and likely to run well once more.
