Not had many goes over fences but a tendency to pull hard has been ruining her chances. Had a wind operation since finishing fourth at Southwell two months ago. Capable of going close if settling better.
Made all for all of his wins over hurdles but things have just not panned out over fences. Beaten a long way at Ffos Las (2m, good) last month and despite a falling mark he is hard to trust at present.
Only had two starts for this yard and is capable of going close off this sort of mark. Should be cherry ripe now and with cheekpieces added for the first time today is likely to be a leading player in this field.
Did not look entirely in love with this game when getting too far back and then running on passed beaten horses over this C&D three weeks ago. Starting to put a patchy book of performances together over fences now and others are preferred.
Won a selling hurdle at Uttoxeter last month but his three subsequent performances have all been rather disappointing. This mark should be within reach but needs to bounce back to form here.
Went very close over C&D here two starts back before the addition of cheekpieces helped him get his head in front at Ffos Las last month. Only just did enough there so only given a 5lb rise and every chance there could be more to come.
