Returns from massive 1256 day absence having shown promise on both starts for Nick Williams back in 2015. Debut for new connections who can get them fit after a break. May be better for run though unless market hints otherwise.
Has shown precious little in two starts so far and looks as though he'll need more time before possibly finding his level.
Cost a massive €295,000 after landing five-runner Deauville bumper in 2016. Four runs for new connections, has started favourite each time and is yet to score but failed by just a short-head at Newbury latest. Sure to be thereabouts once again.
Mistake at 3rd before staying on to be fourth over C&D last time having shown progressive form previously without winning. Has highest BHA racing and looks one for the shortlist.
Nicely bred Presenting gelding cost €110,000 as a three-year-old. Steps up in trip having shown nothing special in three starts to date, but looks the type who might do better in handicaps in due course.
Beaten a long way on British/Rules debut here over 2m7f in testing ground. Drop back in trip may help the cause but a great deal more needed.
Ran well to be second on debut in Ffos Las bumper and wasn't disgraced when fourth in hurdles bow at same track in January. Yard has 19% winning strike rate here so may not be far away and worth observing the markets for any sign of interest.
Twice raced Malinas gelding with 21-month gap between races. Showed little on both occasions and appears out of his depth once again on all known form. First time tongue-tie applied.
Won Irish maiden point-to-point on second start in that sphere in May last year but not seen since. Hard to assess but probably will find this a stiff task on first outing under Rules.
No great shakes in four starts in France before joining good British yard in January. Good first run for connections when 3rd of 13 in Warwick 2m juvenile hurdle after seven months absence so should win a race or two.
