Good start to his hurdles career with wins here over C&D and at Aintree (both good). Very good effort again last time under double penalty. Should go close.
Won a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle, followed by a 1m6f Carlisle Flat handicap last month. Has a little to find with the top weight based on official ratings, but open to improvement and should be very competitive.
Carlisle bumper winner (soft) last year. Has run well in both hurdles, one of them here over 2m. Step up in trip looks positive. Claims.
Placed in hurdles at both Hexham (2m, good) and Perth (2m4f, good) in the summer. Backward step last time and looks up against it here, even if he can bounce back.
Third foal. Dam a maiden point winning half-sister to 2m4f-3m1f hunter chase winner Coole Abbey. Watching brief in this line-up on debut.
Well held in all starts so far, suggesting that it will be a surprise if she proves good enough to have a say here.
