Appeared to improve for the application of blinkers when completing a double in winning over 2m at Uttoxeter (good) in July. Well held at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) subsequently however.
Broke his maiden over hurdles when winning over this trip at Warwick (good-to-soft) in May. Changed yards since and is worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Successful by a nose at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in September. Good third at Ludlow (2m, good) subsequently and capable of running well once more. Also declared 14:55 Sandown Sunday.
Winner of three of his eight hurdles starts including by 10L at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) in July. Placed on the Flat earlier this month and a leading contender on his return to hurdles.
Returning from a break when winning a 2m handicap hurdle at Ludlow (good-to-firm) just over a month ago. Raised 5lb for that effort and interesting to see how he fares.
Running well in defeat on the Flat in recent times. Struggled when last in action over hurdles in December last year however and probably best watched in this contest.
Decent fourth at Taunton (good) over an extended 2m on handicap debut 12 months ago. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day retained on the Flat since and is worth a check in the market on his return to hurdling.
Pulled up twice prior to wind surgery and showed signs of a possible return to form when finishing fifth over an extended 2m5f at Wincanton (good-to-firm) last month.
Held in two starts over an extended 2m3f at Bangor last month. Probably best watched on his third run back from a break.
Victorious on the Flat at Windsor (good-to-soft) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares on his first start over hurdles since joining this yard.
Soft ground handicap winner over 1m2f at Lingfield in August. Struggled over 1m4f subsequently and probably best watched on his first hurdles start since January.
Winner of a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f at Newton Abbot (good-to-soft) in September. Good second at Ludlow subsequently and he is one to note in this contest.
