Bought privately for £22,000 in January after finishing runner-up in a 3m maiden PTP; finished a distant last of four on rules/stable debut in a Uttoxeter bumper in March; hurdles debut.
Modest on the Flat (47-rated) and 0-5 over hurdles, although did finish runner-up in a juvenile hurdle at this track in June 2016 (for previous trainer Phil Kirby).
Beaten just ¾L in a similar C&D maiden in October and has broadly run to a similar level of form since without necessarily progressing; holds a better chance than some, but place prospects only.
Disqualified after winning a 3m Belclare PTP in March (prohibitive substance in sample) and has moved onto pastures new ahead of this his rules/hurdles debut.
Not beaten far in the second of his two starts in points (3m, soft at Castletown-Geoghegan) and has crossed the Irish Sea to join a new trainer ahead of this his rules/hurdles debut.
Well regarded by his trainer, and the winner of a couple of soft/heavy ground bumpers since being bought for £65,000 in December 2017; beaten by the promising Al Dancer on hurdles debut at Carlisle (2m1f+, good to soft) last month.
