Dual bumper winner was an impressive 14L maiden hurdle winner over 2m1f on good ground here in November. Decent fourth upped to an extended 2m4f at Newcastle (soft) subsequently and likely to run well once more.
Victorious on heavy going in a 2m maiden hurdle at Hexham last time out.. Interesting to see how he fares upped in distance under a penalty.
Placed over 2m5f on good ground here in November. Below that level in two subsequent starts including when beaten 20L on handicap debut last time out.
Maiden after four starts and pulled up on his two most recent outings. Likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.
Finished third twice from four starts to date. Beaten 1½L on hurdling debut at Kelso (2m5f, good-to-soft) a month ago and drop in distance unlikely to inconvenience.
Finished fourth in juvenile hurdles the last twice including when beaten 16L at Wetherby (2m, good-to-soft) last time out. More needed stepping up in distance.
