2m2f Kilbeggan maiden hurdle winner (good) who has bettered that form in handicaps since, and deservedly back on the scoresheet at Cork last time. Stiff task back in novice company, however.
It was a modest maiden hurdle he won at Punchestown in June, and although he probably needed the run in handicap company at Gowran last month, he's easy enough to oppose under a penalty.
Unbeaten in bumpers, and off the mark at the fourth attempt in this sphere over C&D recently. Needs to pull out more to defy a penalty, but has scope for better based on bumper exploits.
Broke his maiden under Rules when winning a 2m3f bumper at Downpatrick (good) in June, and off the mark at first attempt over hurdles at Sligo in August. That was a weak race, but he's open to improvement.
13-race maiden hurdler who appears out of his depth in this class of contest, and was merely picking up the pieces late when third of 4 to Tell Me Annie here last time.
Off the mark at the 17th attempt in a handicap hurdle at Navan (2m6f, good to firm), and improved on that when nose second of 6 to He's No Molly in novice at Cork last time. This is tougher still, however.
Top yard did well with dam's half-sister J'y Vole, and this daughter of Martaline was a wide margin winner of a Roscommon bumper on her racecourse bow. Impressed again when slamming Licklighter on hurdles debut at Punchestown, and hard to beat here.
