Dual winner last season when his best run was a fourth in the Fred Winter Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Competes off the same mark and has fair claims.
Decent effort when third to the high-class We Have A Dream in the Finale Juvenile Hurdle over C&D in January. Pulled up at the Cheltenham Festival, but should be revitalised after his summer break.
Dual winner in France, but only start for this stable saw him finish last of 10 in a hot novice hurdle at Kempton. Surely capable of better, but has it to prove.
Still a maiden over hurdles, but showed ability before pulling up in the Fred Winter Hurdle at Cheltenham when quietly fancied. Down 2lb and looks a likely contender if wind surgery has done the trick.
Several pieces of useful form last season, including when scoring by a wide margin at Uttoxeter. Warmed up for this with a run on the Flat at Chester last month and is worth noting for market support.
Back-to-back successes at Newbury and Ascot (fortunate winner) before a poor effort in a Market Rasen handicap. Not seen since February and is down 4lb. Looks a stronger contender than stable companion Ballywood.
Scoring for the second time over hurdles when defying odds of 20-1 at Plumpton last month. Has gone up 5lb and this is a step up in grade, but he has fitness on his side.
Ludlow winner in January and generally ran with credit thereafter. Returns from a summer holiday following wind surgery and in first-time blinkers. Interesting contender.
