134-rated hurdler; made all (30/100f) on chasing debut at Exeter (3m, good) last month; penalised accordingly in a stronger contest but handles cut and should be positively involved.
The lowest rated of these five runners over hurdles (127) but showed much improved form post wind surgery (and when upped to 3m); bred for jumping fences and rates as a ground versatile (good or soft) individual.
135-rated hurdler who revels in soft ground. That said, is yet to win beyond 2m5f+ (albeit seemingly does stay further) and hit the deck at the 13th fence under Tom Scudamore on chasing debut at Exeter three weeks ago.
Cost £58,000 in April 2017 (dam a half-sister to the Coral Cup winner Big Strand); ultra-progressive over hurdles during his novice campaign winning at Wincanton (2m5f+) and Musselburgh (3m, soft); a fascinating newcomer to fences.
