The first of his two runs for this yard was better than his last. Top claimer booked but he would make more appeal over further.
Best effort over hurdles came over C&D on penultimate start. Appears to have stamina issues and if Marju's Quest again makes this a test then he will have problems.
12-race maiden who has rarely threatened to get involved at the business end of his races. Top claimer on board today but looks an unlikely winner despite being eased in the weights.
€20,000 purchase as a three-year-old by Getaway out of an unraced half-sister to the yard's Grand National runner-up Cappa Bleu. Never a factor in novice hurdles last term, but he gets better ground here on handicap debut.
3-59 over hurdles with last win coming under this rider 18 months ago. Placed on three of his four visits here but disappointing last time.
Showed first glimmer of ability last time but that rather reflected how bad the race was. Needs to find more here.
Unplaced at big prices on all 12 starts and he makes little appeal despite his lowly weight and top young rider.
