Point-to-point winner in November, and has run well on all Rules outings, not needing to improve to win a 15-runner maiden hurdle at Tramore (2m) last month. Found a good opening here, and should be hard to beat.
Beaten a long way in a couple of novice hurdles in May, and while he should do better in time, low-grade handicaps will be a more suitable option after another run.
Beaten off basement marks in Flat handicaps this year, and pulled up when tried over hurdles for another yard in 2016/17 season. Plenty to prove.
Won a couple of Flat handicaps at up to 1¼m in July, and although he's been below form on both starts since, he's clearly got the ability to make an impact here assuming his jumping passes muster.
Half-brother to a couple of hurdles winners in Beluckyagain and Inthejungle, and from a good jumping family. Travelled well on bumper debut at Ayr in January, and again shaped well when fourth on hurdles bow at Worcester recently. Will improve.
Placed in a soft ground bumper here last August, but has struggled badly since, and has only beaten one rival in a couple of spins over hurdles.
Stable-companion of Solway Berry, and has shown just a glimmer of ability in three starts in bumpers. No appeal now switching to hurdles.
