Ridden more positively when rebounding from a dreadful run to score at Fontwell. His Flat form would indicate he should be better than we have seen, but also that there must be a stamina doubt if there is any give in the ground.
Modest Flat maiden representing a yard that sprang a 50/1 surprise with another juvenile debutant last week. Doubtful lightning can strike twice.
Strongly fancied for both starts over hurdles but looked a difficult ride last time at Perth. Return to a left-handed track should help.
Wore blinkers when landing a modest maiden in the French provinces prior to joining current handler for €46,000. Headgear dispensed with and makes his hurdling debut at an undemanding level.
Sprang a 25/1 surprise at Newcastle in February and has joined current stable for 22,000 gns. Has a tendency to pull hard and and best watched until judging whether the hood has a positive effect.
Well held in all Flat starts and difficult to give him any serious chance on what we have seen.
Unresponsive on last few runs under both codes and impossible to recommend until producing a performance to suggest he can be trusted.
Showed some promise on the Flat prior to being acquired for £70,000. Earned a Flat rating of 78 which puts him in the mix if his jumping is up to scratch.
Well held on all four flat starts and now tackles hurdles for the first time. Needs to step up considerably on what she has done on the level to be involved.
