Placed over an extended 2m3f at Huntingdon (good) on his penultimate start. Held a 2L advantage when unseating at Chepstow recently and a bold show looks likely.
Placed three times in bumpers including at Fontwell (good) over an extended 2m1f in May. Cheekpieces worn that day are absent for this hurdling debut.
Point-to-point winner at the 12th attempt on yielding-to-soft ground in Ireland. Probably best watched on his first outing over hurdles.
Point-to-point winner over 2m4f on soft ground in March. Placed in a couple of point-to-point bumpers since and is one for the shortlist on hurdling debut.
Well beaten eighth when debuting in a bumper at Stratford (good-to-soft) in May 2016. Absent since and probably best watched on hurdles debut.
Placed three times from four point-to-point starts including when third on yielding ground in May. Market support would be notable on Rules debut.
Point-to-point winner on good ground at Largy in April. Well beaten in a Cheltenham (good-to-soft) bumper recently and interesting to see how he fares on hurdling debut.
Bumper winner at Newbury (good-to-soft) on Debut 12 months ago. Decent fourth at Wincanton subsequently and represents a good yard on hurdling debut.
Signs of ability despite falling in two point-to-point starts in the spring. Pulled up on hurdles debut at Stratford (2m6f, good) last month however.
Struggled when making his debut in a bumper over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good-to-firm) in June. Probably best watched on hurdles debut.
Well beaten when finishing tenth in a valuable Newbury bumper on soft ground in March. Had wind surgery subsequently but others make more appeal on hurdling bow.
Point-to-point winner on good-to-yielding ground in May and ran well when 4L second in a small field 2m5f novice hurdle at Ludlow (good) last time out.
