Smart hurdler who returned to win a handicap off 125 on return to action at Chepstow last month. Beaten into second on return to novice company last time at Kempton but that developed into a sprint in a slowly run race. Leading contender once again.
Steadily improving over hurdles having broke his duck at Newton Abbot in September he ran well to be a close second under a penalty at Worcester last time. Still potential improvement to come but this is tougher once more.
Tailed off on two starts in bumpers this summer. Looks to need further and probably fences before we see improvement. Hurdles debut.
Held in a couple of bumpers in the spring but the first effort in particular showed plenty of promise. Should do better now tackling hurdles and yard have made a good start to the season. Interesting on hurdles debut.
Showed clear signs of ability when finishing a runner-up in a 3m Irish point-to-point on soft ground in November. Picked up for £75,000 on the back of that but was well held in sole bumper start in the spring. Hurdles debut today and should improve.
Sent off favourite for bumper debut but failed to live up to market expectations. Well held in only other start in a time when the stable were not having the best of things. Should improve now going hurdling and market check very much required.
Showed glimmers of ability in a couple of bumpers in the spring including here on debut. Hood fitted for hurdles debut and needs to improve.
