14:50 Chepstow Tue 30 October 2018
Winner of a Warwick novice hurdle two years ago for Nick Williams and failed to register a win in three starts for new connections at the beginning of the year. Yard not quite firing as of yet and best watched in the market here.
Has disappointed connections in a series of desolate displays since the turn of the year. Recently acquired by racing syndicate and expected to come on for this run following his summer break.
Record of two from 30 starts and no win for two years, but he has been knocking at the door including at Newton Abbot last month. Yard not hitting top gear as yet but could hit the frame.
Sole win over hurdles came in a Carlisle handicap two years ago off a 5lb lower mark when in the care of David Loder. Market likely to be the best guide in this contest.
Possibly needed the run on seasonal bow in a 2m5½f handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot earlier this month. Open to plenty of improvement on second start of the season.
Well held and no impression when last seen in May at Uttoxeter on good ground. Has gone well when fresh in the past and capable of a big run here.
Nine-race maiden hurdler and comes here on the back of a frustrating Flat campaign. Market to be informative.
