Created good impression winning first two starts this term before outclassed in Grade 2 at Warwick. Touch disapointing last time and steps up in trip which could well suit. Double penalty to concede but still rates a player.
Progressed all three starts this season, going close penultimate start at Hereford then stepping up to this trip to win in style at Lingfield last time. Yard remains in from and should be right in the mix once again.
Ran with credit on all four starts last term over shorter trips but hasn't found his form this campaign in two outings. Looks up against it on that evidence.
Winning point-to-pointer who showed promise on Rules bow for new yard on penultimate start at Ludlow but didn't back that up when well beaten last time out. Too early to write off and easier ground may help the cause.
First-time cheekpieces applied having pulled up when well beaten on all three starts this term. Little form prior to that and looks to face a very stiff task indeed.
Won two Irish point-to-points in early 2018 prior to joining current yard. Only moderate displays so far in two races under Rules and will need to improve significantly to shae up market principals.
Won bumper in June 2018 but hasn't gone on from there. Refused to race on hurdles bow at Ludlow in January when well fancied, then faded before 2 out last time beaten 38 lengths. Returns from wind surgery and not without chance if back on song.
First run since wind op and makes Rules debut having been bought for £29,000 since winning last two point-to-points. Good yard so worth checking for any market interest.
Maiden point-to-pointer who was long odds and finished tailed off on debut under Rules last time. Very hard to enthuse over.
Only decent effort when third in Southwell bumper in November but has shown little in three starts since, two over timber. Much more needed.
