Just looked as though he lacked a little experience when asked to close down a bold front runner at Plumpton on his hurdles debut. That winner has won again since so there is nothing wrong with the form and he should know more this time.
Showed some promise in a pair of bumper starts and the same could be said of two hurdles run although he looks the sort to do better in handicaps. Needs this run for a mark and will be of more interest further down the line.
Inexperienced sort who makes his hurdles debut having shown some fair form in two bumpers seven months apart. Promised a little more than the end product last time he should be noted in the market here given his running so far.
AW bumper winner with his former yard who has looked to need his two hurdles runs so far (both on testing ground). Looks as though he may be capable of better on a sounder surface and with some more experience under his belt.
Placed in point-to-points (eight starts in that sphere) but that would only be modest form and his form under Rules would be of similar quality. Looked as though he needed the run on his GB/stable debut (raced freely); work in progress.
Ran in a Haydock void race last time but had shown little in bumpers when trained in Ireland (looked limited). Has done nothing to dispel that notion since joining this yard and hard to see him getting involved at this level.
From a yard in excellent form (double at Chepstow yesterday); shaped much better than the bare result on her hurdles debut at Uttoxeter (travelled well). Given that run she's likely to improve again; hard to rule out with the trainer in top form.
Her pedigree gives some hope that she may be better than her two very modest runs have shown so far but further proof would be needed. Finished well held so far and needs to show more alacrity in her jumping to be of interest.
