Created a good impression on chasing debut when making all at Southwell last month. The form has worked out really well with the next three home all winning since and could rate higher in this sphere.
Won valuable novice handicap over 2m4f at Sandown in March in the mud prior to pulling up in a Grade 1 when last seen at Aintree in April. Chasing type but likely to need further.
Decent front running hurdler who now switches to the larger obstacles. Should do well at this game but concedes experience to some promising types.
Well beaten in a pair of novice chases and likely scenario again today with low grade handicaps an option after this.
Placed a couple of times in minor company over hurdles for previous yard. Tailed off on debut for current trainer and impossible to fancy now switched to fences.
Last Year's Winner
Destrier (1/2), Sam's Gunner (3/1), Reivers Lad (5/1), Tonto's Spirit (6/1), Uncle Bobby (100/1), Margaret's Rose (200/1)
