Modest recruit from the Flat where rated just 45. Well beaten on hurdling debut and others have stronger claims.
Won a 1m2f Lingfield AW seller on his final start for Marcus Tregoning in what was a very weak contest and well beaten on both Flat starts for this yard. Makes hurdling debut with plenty to prove.
Rated in the mid 80s on the Flat for John Gosden. Made his hurdling debut 10 days ago wearing a hood after drifting alarmingly in the market. Jumped well on first run since May and interesting to see if the market signs are more positive.
Achieved a modest level on the Flat and was soon in trouble on hurdling debut. Will need to have learnt a lot for the experience.
Poor Flat maiden makes hurdling debut for a yard that ended a quiet spell with a winner at Huntingdon yesterday.
Half-brother to nine winners including Viking Blond (2m7f-3m hurdle/chase) and Rosemauve (2m5f-2m7f hurdle); raced keenly on debut at Perth (2m, good) in September when finishing just over 10L fourth of eight to Ghost Serge.
Runner-up at Kempton on last start but best Flat form came on quicker ground than expected here for hurdling debut.
Six-race Flat maiden showed some ability although he has looked one paced. Not highly tried on jumping debut and stable have made a good start with their juvenile hurdlers.
Won a poor AW handicap in September but stepped up on that next time in a better race at Pontefract. Makes hurdling debut in a low grade affair and the market should be informative.
