Recorded a modest time when landing a Bartlemy maiden point-to-point in May. That form is not strong but he has joined a top yard who have a good record here
Third in Punchstown Festival bumper in April. Bought for £40,000 and looked in need of the run on stable debut. Having first run over hurdles and tackling a trip which will test his stamina.
Bought for £10,000 in June after winning a weak point-to-point for Colin Bowe. Not beaten far at Sedgefield two weeks ago and although the form is not strong, his fitness and hurdling experience are in his favour.
Bought for £80,000 after finishing runner-up in a Tallow point-to-point. Has joined a stable in very good form and one with a 13-33 record here with hurdlers over past five seasons.
Won two of his last three point-to-points before joining this yard for £40,000. Looked one paced on Carlisle hurdling debut but at least has the experience and the extra half-mile helps.
