Winner of a novice hurdle at Kempton (2m5f, good) in April and ran a decent race over an extended 3m at Aintree (good) when fourth on his return to handicaps the following month. Of interest once more.
Dual winner last season and ran well to finish runner-up in a novice hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good-to-soft) in April. One to note on handicap and seasonal debut.
Decent effort in finishing 5L third over an extended 2m5f at Newton Abbot (good) at the start of last month. Interesting runner racing off the same mark in this contest.
Placed over 2m4f at Fakenham (good-to-soft) in April but disappointed twice since including when falling at Haydock (2m7f, good) in May.
Winner of a handicap hurdle over an extended 3m at Doncaster (good-to-soft) in February. Below par since and refused to race on his penultimate start.
Soft ground novice hurdle winner at Huntingdon (2m) in January. Struggled on both handicap starts however and others hold stronger claims on seasonal debut.
Placed on soft ground at Wincanton (2m4f) in November and finished a decent fourth over an extended 2m3f at Hereford (soft) subsequently. Disappointing the last twice and making his seasonal debut.
Winner of a selling handicap over an extended 2m2f on good going here a month ago. Raised 9lb for that success and worth a check in the market on this occasion.
