Bred to be a chaser and showed improved form to get off the mark on her first try over the larger obstacles before disappointing subsequently. Managed to head back in the right direction last time; repeat of that run makes her a player.
This will be his first start over fences for this yard/under Rules (1-1 in point-to-points); showed little over hurdles so far (0-9). Off a career-low mark now but needs to show more zip/spark given this test.
Had shown nothing over hurdles but took a step forward on his chasing debut from a basement mark when second at Ludlow (2m4f). Hasn't shown anything in two runs since including when fifth at Plumpton yesterday; more needed.
Back to form from out of the blue when winning at Bangor in October (headgear back on); given a chance by the handicapper. Given his profile no surprise he's not been able to back up that run in two subsequent starts; struggled badly last time out.
Made very little impact under Rules so far; 0-3 in Irish point-to-points (only completed once). Now given a try over fences in handicaps off a lowly mark (never ran in handicaps over hurdles); had wind surgery.
Very long-standing maiden who has eased down the weights and been prominent in the market on several occasions without taking advantage. Expensive to follow the headgear worn last time is now removed; remains an unsafe proposition.
