Has had three starts to date, all in France, third in a Listed hurdle at Auteuil latest and winner has gone on to prove most useful. Joined powerful connections and looks a leading player.
Winner at Wetherby on debut for the yard and although not disgraced back at that venue in a Listed hurdle last time out, jumping wasn't great in the latter stages. Chances again here but needs to cut the errors out when the pressure's on.
Had ability on the Flat for Roger Charlton, winning first two starts, not so good afterwards but has joined a yard that do well with these types when sent hurdling. Money for him would make him interesting.
Well beaten at big prices both starts so far and hard to think today is going to be any different.
Low grade on the Flat and has already had three tries over hurdles without showing a lot. Likely to find the company a bit too hot to handle.
Regressive on the Flat for Charles Hills last year and found winning tough. Has joined a top yard but looks one more for handicaps later down the line.
Had ability on the Flat (at 8-10f) and came good at Nottingham in June. Won't want a stamina test but made a perfectly good start to hurdling career when third to King D'Argent at Wetherby, and should improve.
