Cost £80,000 in March, after winning an Irish point-to-point on debut (soft/heavy). Has a Flat pedigree, but looks a potentially useful recruit to this code and a good debut would not surprise. Market check.
Looked like winning when falling at the last on debut at Ascot (soft) in January, before being beaten favourite at Sandown (heavy) next time. Improved on that in Grade 1 at Aintree when last seen. Can go close to breaking his duck.
Didn't show much for James Ewart and joined current connections in the spring for £6,000. Probably one to watch on his hurdles debut.
Bumper winner (good to soft) at Sandown a year ago and bettered that when a very respectable eighth in the big one at Cheltenham in March. Looks a useful recruit to this sphere and a clear round should see him in the mix.
Won an Irish point-to-point at the second attempt and changed hands for £17,000 soon after. Stable not noted for debut winners, but still worth checking in the market.
Scored by 10L on her Irish point-to-point debut and ran well on rules debut in a Chepstow bumper (soft) in March. Should improve for that experience and another summer under her belt. Interesting newcomer to hurdles.
Unable to win in point-to-points, a bumper or a hurdle in Ireland and was bought by this trainer for £5,000 in May. Can only watch on her stable debut.
Yet to show much in two bumpers. Bred to jump, but this is a hot enough contest for her to be making her debut over hurdles from what we have seen.
