Enjoyed a decent novice campaign over hurdles, but found the competition too tough when switched to handicap company for the Coral Cup at Cheltenham. Seasonal/chasing debut and is one to note for leading connections.
Quite highly tried in handicap hurdles last season, but showed a fair level of ability. Interesting on his chasing bow for successful owners.
Winner of two of her 10 races over hurdles and ran well to be second to Clyne at Uttoxeter in March. First start over fences for a stable going quite well.
Has improved markedly since switched to fences, winning both of his chase starts at Fontwell and Plumpton. This is a stronger contest and he is up a total of 10lb, but his experience will stand him in good stead.
Not seen out since landing a novice hurdle at Chepstow in April. Chasing debut for respected stable and has to enter calculations.
Good second to a subsequent winner at Market Rasen last month. Will have been well prepared for this chasing debut by a stable which is hitting top form.
Winner of his only point-to-point and was leading the way on his chasing debut at Carlisle until running out before the tenth fence. It was too far out to judge how he might have fared, but the early signs were promising enough. Cheekpieces fitted.
Maiden hurdle winner at Ludlow in January, but was not at his best when last seen in April. Tries his luck over fences and the market will probably be the best guide to his chances.
Successful on chasing debut over 2m5f at Newton Abbot and ran in a hurdling contest before reverting to fences and finishing fifth of nine over 3m1f at Aintree off an 8b higher mark. Drop back in trip ought to suit.
Three placings in seven starts over fences so knows how to handle the bigger obstacles. More exposed than his rivals, though, and needs to find extra.
