Getaway gelding. Dam maiden on Flat. Pulled up on point debut in April. Yard capable of getting one ready and Bryan Cooper booked, worth a look.
Held in one bumper run and hadn't achieved a lot during Flat career prior to being well fended off last month over timber for the first time. Others preferred.
An €18,000 thee-year-old whose dam was lightly-raced over hurdles, half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser Celtic Boy. Off since one point-to-point run in spring of 2017. Represents strong yard and positive jockey booking.
0-10 over hurdles so far, tasked with running off a tough mark in handicaps last year however, well beaten in both spring starts, has joined Joseph O'Brien over the summer and worth a market check on comeback in maiden company.
2-25 on the Flat, including over a mile at Killarney in August, well held here over same trip last month on heavy going. Makes hurdles bow today, worth a market check.
Has been consistent on the Flat this summer without getting head in front, 0-4 previously over timber but definite promise shown and no shock to see him in the mix.
Punchestown bumper winner in April 2017 but hasn't exactly built on that and has been sidelined for spells since. Held at Listowel and Navan last month, back from 300 days off, latterly when making hurdles debut. More needed.
Well held in four career starts to date including on return from summer break at Listowel last month having gone off a 100/1 chance. Plenty to work on.
