Successful on sole outing in Irish point-to-points but his hurdling debut when he finished at the rear of midfield at Chepstow (2m3f) showed him to be a longer-term project. 20-1 on that occasion he'll be looking to gain more experience here.
Very limited ability shown in first three starts. Third of five to the smart Thomas Darby latest a best run to date even though beaten 31L. Place possibilities again here.
Twice placed bumper performed but beaten 35L by re-opposing Elusive Belle on hurdles bow at Wincanton. Huge amount then to find and looking for clues for the future here.
Beaten out of sight in a bumper and two hurdles so far. Can only be watched for now and may well need further down the line based on pedigree.
Did well in the circumstances when third to Rocco on hurdles debut at Chepstow but couldn't build on that when seventh of 16 at Newbury subsequently. One of three for yard so market may guide as to expectations here.
Showed best form to date at Ludlow latest when fifth of 11 in a moderate novices hurdle. Repeat of that should see him in the hunt again for a place but little chance of anything more.
Bumper winner finished second in all three hurdle races to date. Latest when long odds-on a disappointment in truth but earlier Newbury run certainly useful and looks the best alternative here.
Listed bumper second absolutely hacked up on hurdles/stable debut at Wincanton. Soft ground an unknown here but form head and shoulders best on offer so hard to oppose.
