14:00 Musselburgh Fri 22 March 2019
Ready 7L winner of a 3m maiden here (good) in December, but a beaten favourite on soft ground at Catterick (2m3½f) later that month; returns to action following wind surgery and a three-month absence on more suitable ground.
Has progressed with experience over hurdles and was in the process of running a decent race in Class 2 company at Ascot (2m3½f) last month when falling at the final flight; should prove ultra-competitive under optimum conditions.
Cost €130,000 as a 3yo; showed distinct promise in a couple of bumpers against fairly talented rivals (I'm To Blame and Dali Mail) in early 2018; makes his hurdles debut off the back of an 11-month absence; market a guide.
Has shown a determined attitude in being unbeaten in two starts on the AW at Newcastle (2m Class 6 handicaps); more than capable of winning races over hurdles, although that mightn't necessarily be today on jumps debut.
A four-time winner on the Flat over staying distances (three of those successes came at this track); hasn't at all convinced over hurdles thus far, and whilst this quicker ground will be more suitable, he shouldn't prove good enough.
Keen mare from a good family (sister to the bumper/2m4f hurdle winner Tokaramore); finished a remote second to a stablemate of Tight Call (Landsman) on hurdles debut over C&D 23-days ago.
