Followed up a maiden hurdle success at Warwick (2m5f, good) in October with a good second at Southwell (3m, good) later that month. One to note under a penalty.
Point-to-point winner on soft-to-heavy going in February. Decent fourth on Rules debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in October but well beaten subsequently.
Struggled in a couple of bumpers including on heavy going at Wincanton in April. Probably best watched on seasonal and hurdles debut.
Dual point-to-point winner in May ran a decent race when fifth over an extended 2m3f on soft ground here when debuting under Rules last month. Step up in trip should suit.
Off the mark at the third time of asking in point-to-points when winning on soft ground at Dromahane in April. Worth a check in the market on Rules debut.
Victorious in a heavy ground point-to-point last December. Fair fifth in a 2m heavy ground bumper here in April and interesting to see how he fares upped in distance on hurdling debut.
Signs of ability in a novice hurdle over an extended 2m2f at Exeter (soft) in February 2017. Well beaten next time out however and returning from a lengthy absence.
Signs of ability in a couple of bumper starts but well beaten on both attempts at hurdles and wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Off the mark at the fifth time over hurdles when winning by 11L in a 2m7f handicap at Bangor (soft) last week. Step up in distance appeared to suit that day.
