First foal of an unraced half-sister to 2m4f-3m1f hurdle/useful chase winner Fully Cry. Makes debut at the age of seven, and probably one to watch.
82-rated stayer on the Flat/AW. Returns from a break (has won when fresh) for hurdles debut and if his trainer can harness that ability into jumping, then he could show up well. Acts on good.
Has shown some promise in bumpers, including on good. Dam a sister to Lieutenant Miller, who won over 2m2f on the Flat and 2m2f-2m3f over hurdles. Needs to improve on his hurdles debut, but in good hands and may do so.
Making improvement with each run. Decent effort at Leicester (1m7½f) last time. More needed, but not ruled out of the frame back up in trip.
Debut Irish point-to-point winner. Held on rules debut in an Ascot bumper in November, but was supported there and is interesting now back over obstacles for hurdles debut, and also back up in trip.
Improved on his debut in a 1m6f bumper at Ludlow (soft) last time. Half-brother to two hurdle winners, so could improved now switched to this discipline and also stepped up in trip.
Irish point-to-point winner who ran well on her hurdles debut at Leicester last month. Couldn't build on that in a maiden hurdle back there last time, when upped to this sort of trip. Can't write her off after that, but needs to bounce back.
