Consistent over hurdles so far but also been a tad frustrating. Got the trip well latest and conditions should suit. The betting can guide as to any confidence behind giving the gelding another chance.
A modest effort in a point-to-point and a similar level posted on his rules debut at Exeter in December are his only credentials so far. Needs to improve for the drop in trip.
Second in an Irish point-to-point before posting two ordinary efforts over hurdles. Improvement required.
Show little in any of his starts up to press and not too difficult to recommend looking elsewhere for the time being.
Only hinted at ability over hurdles so far and possible he needs a sterner test of stamina. Previous bumper form reads well but needs to up his game now.
Set things up for the rest here last time and was eventually well held. A more patient ride over this new might bring about some improvement but looks a risky option for win only purposes.
Won from a mark of 78 on the Flat for this yard in December but form not so good in two starts over hurdles since. Another with a bit to prove.
Has looked like he lacks a change of gear in both starts so far. Emerged unscathed from a fall on his debut but failed to trouble the main contenders last time. Still learning but more still required.
Finished 5l behind subsequent Grade 2 winner Southfield Stone in December but well held twice since. The return to this C&D can help. Place claims if he can take a step forward.
Bred for the jumping game and won his only start in a point-to-point well. Purchased for £22,000 after that win and joined a yard that is very on the up. One to bear in mind if the betting suggests he's ready for his rules debut.
A maiden under both codes; 0-10 over hurdles and has shown very little of interest in two starts since the turn of the year. Others readily preferred.
Made no impact in either start to date and is another that looks to be of very modest ability.
