Hurdling debutant for an in-form yard who went close to winning this two years ago. 13-race maiden on the Flat whose best form came on Tapeta.
Lightly-raced Flat maiden whose only decent effort came when conditions were soft. Joined current yard for 5,000 gns in July.
Modest Flat maiden who was placed in a French claimer on latest start. Stable 1-21 with hurdlers in past five seasons.
Landed two minor AW races last winter and has been absent since February. Rated 82 on the level and has joined a yard who are 2-4 in this contest.
Sprang a 25/1 surprise at Newcastle in February and has joined current stable for 22,000 gns since his last run in June. Rated behind a couple of these on the Flat and he needs to have learnt how to settle.
Pick of these on Flat ratings and represents an in-form stable boasting a 7-34 five year strike rate with their hurdlers here.
