Hurdles winner at Perth in April (2m4f, soft) but lacks much in the way of obvious natural scope for progression over fences - already 0-11; tough task at these weights against some far less exposed rivals.
Latecomer to rules racing at the age of nine, but is a PTP winner (3m, soft); couldn't have been expected to fare any better than he did (66/1) in a very warm looking novices' chase at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) latest.
Much improved hurdler in the 2017/18 season, winning the Grade 2 Rendlesham at Haydock (2m7f, heavy) in February before an ambitious tilt at the Stayers Hurdle (ran with credit); perfectly respectable second over fences at Hexham (3m) 18-days ago.
PTP winner who truthfully didn't achieve a great deal over hurdles in the early part of 2018; should be better suited by this discipline but rates as more of a long-term handicap project than a potential winning novice.
Closely related to the PTP/2m4f chase winner Mor Brook, so perhaps no surprise that he bypasses the hurdling route completely following three fair (at best) runs in bumpers; rates as a highly unlikely winner on these terms.
Cost €125,000 in April 2017; showed plenty of ability in bumpers and over hurdles (runner up to Coole Hall in the 2017 French Furze Novices' Hurdle); bred for chasing; bitterly disappointing at Hexham (3m) 18-days ago.
Bought for £20,000 in May (1-4 in PTP's); half-brother to the PTP winner Syddan Rose; never in the hunt on rules chasing debut at Wetherby (3m, good) and predicted to struggle again this afternoon.
Mare who looked the part as a novice hurdler over staying trips at Newcastle (two-time winner). Well suited by cut but has struggled to regain any positive momentum over hurdles over the past 12-months; relatively untested over fences (3-9 PTP's).
