Good record of three wins from nine starts over hurdles, but was pulled up in a hot race on his reappearance at Cheltenham last month. This is much more feasible and the fitting of a visor makes him interesting.
By no means disgraced when fourth of eight in a decent handicap at Chepstow on his return to action. Down 2lb and should strip fitter for a stable in fine form.
Landed a Market Rasen maiden hurdle in April and has been placed in two subsequent novice hurdles. On a feasible mark for his first handicap and is one for the short list.
Tailed off in first-time cheekpieces on latest outing and surprising that the headgear is retained. Previous efforts put him in the mix, however, so not one to write off.
Dual winner over hurdles, but not at his best when last seen at Plumpton in April. Down 2lb and could get involved with his jockey taking off so much weight.
Landed a Perth novice hurdle in April, but has been off the track since and starts out for a trainer who does well with his acquisitions from other stables. Interesting that he has other entries next week.
Promise in maiden hurdles when trained in Ireland by Joseph O'Brien. Handicap debut for new stable and is one to note in the betting.
Landed a Wincanton handicap hurdle in April, but was held off this mark at Market Rasen in May. First run since and has a bit to prove.
Back-to-back handicap hurdle wins in the spring, but found higher mark beyond him at Fotnwell on latest start in May. Not ruled out, but others may be better handicapped.
