Eventually got his head in front in point-to-point field, but has run poorly on all three starts under Rules, and beaten 74L when fourth of 5 at Listowel on latest start.
Exposed as a moderate performer at best over hurdles, and merely plugged on past tiring rivals when sixth of 12 to Aoibhe's Beau in a 2m maiden at Tramore last time.
Didn't go on from a promising start in bumpers, and slight worry h's following a similar pattern over hurdles, although possible he needed the run after a break last time, and this is a very weak maiden, so can have no excuses.
Bred for stamina, but not shown a great deal in bumpers or over hurdles so far, and needs to improve markedly to take a hand here.
Showed a glimmer of ability on racecourse debut at Navan in December, but not built on that at all subsequently, and this €1,000 purchase is almost certainly flattered by that opening effort.
Point-to-point winner like his dam, and has shown ability under Rules, improving on hurdles debut when fourth of 15 to Eamon High in a 2m4f maiden at Killarney last time. That's just fair form, but it's better than most of his rivals can muster.
Jumping let him down in points where he failed to finish more often than not, and probably flattered when sixth of 11 over hurdles at Kilbeggan last month. Failed to repeat that when tailed off at Navan last time.
Often let down by his jumping over hurdles for Peter Croke, and showed nothing starting out for a new yard at Bellewstown in August.
Travelling within herself when unseating at Uttoxeter on penultimate start, and back on track when a closing fourth of 7 at Cork last time. Repeat of that effort would put her in the picture.
Poor performer who looks thoroughly exposed after nine well-beaten efforts under Rules, and makes no appeal.
From the family of Sizing Europe, and showed ability on debut for Jessica Harrington before being brought down. Off 18 months after second start, and well held in two tries for current yard, the first in a point to point.
Nearer last than first in two bumper starts, and has failed to finish on either start since switched to hurdles. Plenty to prove.
