Enjoying a golden autumn to his career with successive victories at Worcester and Perth. Up 15lb since the first of those wins, which poses a serious question.
Completely out of sorts in three runs over fences this year, although each were in significantly better company. Reverts to hurdling with a good deal to prove.
Mixed it against much stronger opposition last season and comeback run at Plumpton was perfectly acceptable. Runs off the same mark and should strip fitter.
Off the mark at the fifth attempt over hurdles when scoring over 2m7f at Exeter in April. More to do back in handicap company, but is relatively unexposed and stable continues in good form.
Things did not go right for him over fences in the spring, but he returns to action back over hurdles with his yard in good form. Handicap mark looks a little high, however.
First-time blinkers did the trick wen she scored over C&D last month. Up 7lb, but gives the impression there is more to come with the headgear retained.
Has not won for some time and has been given a break since finishing fourth of 18 at Wincanton in May. Handicap mark fair, but she has stamina to prove.
Point-to-point winner who has shown little in four starts over hurdles. Plenty to do from 4lb out of the weights.
