Moderate on the Flat. Made an impressive debut over hurdles at Market Rasen in August. Jumped left when placed back at that course last time but there's more to come for a yard in fine form at present. Wears first-time tongue-tie.
He was a maiden on the Flat but caused a big upset when winning at odds of 50/1 on hurdles debut at Ludlow, despite occasional jumping errors. Beat some useful sorts that day and not ruled out despite having to carry a penalty for that success.
Bated Breath gelding, half-brother to two winners over hurdles. Dam an unraced sister to middle distance (Flat) Group 1 winner Beat Hollow. Interesting enough on pedigree, though not the easiest race to make a debut in.
Looked like he was starting to get the hang of things when last seen at Ballinrobe (Flat), finishing third of seven on final start for Ger Lyons. Trainer does well with these types and he's an interesting contender. Wears first-time tongue-tie.
Won a Class 6 handicap off a mark of 64 on the Flat but that was his only success in eight starts and he will need to improve markedly for the switch of codes to play a part here. Market may reveal expectations on hurdles debut.
Achieved only a basement handicap mark on the Flat and has been fairly comprehensively beaten in both hurdles starts. May need more time to be see at his best.
Tailed off on each of her three Flat starts and while she's bred for this sort of test, it would take a huge leap of faith to fancy her on what she's shown to date.
