Newton Abbot return from a 28 month break augured well, but below that next time. Was running a big race at Kempton before falling heavily and his jumping lacked confidence next time. Claims in a poor race if back to his best.
Hurdles mark has dropped whilst his chasing mark went upwards following a good autumn spell. Off since an inauspicious stable debut in October, but still boasts better claims than some in a bad race.
Has done very little over hurdles but his latest run on the Flat suggests he is in good heart. Stable do well here and a market move would be significant.
Third over C&D on return from a two year absence. Not as good next time when "bounce factor" and absence of blinkers may have been to blame. Aids refitted and top rider's only mount of the day.
Placed over C&D last May. Appeared to be coming to hand last time and would not rule out in such a poor race.
Modest maiden with plenty of room for improvement in his jumping. Anything is possible in a race as poor as this, but he remains one for the optimists.
Showed some promise early in his career, but latest efforts have been underwhelming. Cheekpieces on for the first time since a career best on debut, so a cautious eye should be kept on the market.
Tale of woe in the main so far, and although sent off favourite for a couple of Irish point-to-points he was well beaten in those too. Hard to make much of a case for on stable debut.
