Decent prospect who is 4-5 so far and carries a penalty here for a debut hurdling win at Carlisle last month. Acts on soft ground and will be tough to beat here.
0-10 on the Flat, where he is officially rated just 39. Half-brother to a 2m1f hurdle winner, but can only watch on his debut in this code.
Showed a bit of promise on debut here in a bumper in the spring of last year, but has now been off for 13-months after his next outing at Chepstow. Bred to do this, however, and a market check looks prudent on his hurdling debut.
Placed in an Irish point-to-point in May and sold privately for £10,000 in August. Some promise from his National Hunt pedigree, and interesting to see what the market makes of his chance.
Showed a fair bit of promise in France last year, where he won a chase. Interesting on his British debut.
Was the 12L winner of a Wincanton bumper in December, but well below that form in both subsequent runs. Tongue tie may help on his return from a break and he is bred for this game. Revival would not surprise.
Ran on well to deny the odds-on favourite in a bumper here (soft) on debut in April. Dam a half-sister to a useful 2m hurdle winner, and this gelding is another interesting newcomer in the line-up.
Looked useful when winning a Chepstow bumper comfortably on his stable debut in February. Should be well prepared for this hurdling debut and it would be no surprise to see him go close.
Not devoid of promise in a similar race here on good ground in May. Disappointed when stepped up to 2m4f in August, so has a bit to prove, including on soft ground.
Beaten at odds-on by Mick Manhattan here last time, when trying to defy a penalty in a bumper. That was still a very decent effort. Much respected on this hurdling debut.
Respectable third here on debut in a maiden bumper (2m, good to firm) in July. Should win races, but this is not an easy start to his hurdling career.
Maiden under both codes, his hurdles debut at Uttoxeter ending in a 28L defeat. Watch.
