Made a winning handicap debut when taking a 2m4f contest at Aintree (good) in May. Raised 5lb for that victory and is an interesting runner on chase debut.
Placed over fences at Taunton (2m2f, soft) in February. Pulled up on two of her three subsequent starts and is making her debut for a new yard.
Four time hurdles winner but disappointing in recent starts and wind surgery appeared to make no difference when finishing well beaten at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in September. Making his debut over fences.
Dual novice hurdle winner on soft and heavy ground at Hexham last autumn. Still held chances when falling three out on chase debut at that venue last month and remains of interest.
Made a winning chase debut when taking a Southwell contest over an extended 2m4f by 6L in May. Had wind surgery prior to that and is one to note on his return from a break.
Put a disappointing hurdles effort behind him when winning by 6L at Warwick (2m, good) on chase debut last time out. Has to defy an 8lb rise in the weights if he's to follow up.
Good third on the Flat at Kempton (1m4f) in August. Well beaten upped to 2m at Lingfield subsequently and probably best watched on chase debut.
Placed over hurdles the last twice including in a 2m7f maiden event at Market Rasen (good) in June. Yard in good form of late (3/11) and market support would be notable on chase and handicap debut.
Improved form when finishing a good second on good going here last time out. Raised 4lb for that effort and capable of running well once more.
Impressive 12L winner of a handicap chase at Towcester (2m, good-to-firm) in May. Well beaten at Market Rasen a fortnight later however. More needed in this contest.
