Dual novice hurdle winner last term as well as placing in warmer contests at Sandown and Cheltenham and made a winning start over fences where he battled to success at Sandown. Jumped left so this course should suit better; respected.
Winner on his point-to-point debut always looked a chaser in the making although he won once over hurdles. Promising start over fences when third to the useful Count Meribel at Carlisle. Lot to find on hurdles form but best days may still be ahead.
Won first three hurdle races including Warwick Grade Two. Strong start over fences when only beaten ¾L at Cheltenham behind two previous winners and would have gone closer bar a mistake at the last. Excellent claims on the back of that.
Dual soft ground hurdle scorer as a novice has yet to show such potential over fences with a last of five and fourth of six in races at Carlisle. Last race was warm so still has potential but looks least likely of this quartet.
