Only start came in Irish maiden point-to-point and has wind surgery since. Makes Rules debut here and likley to find this a tough baptism.
Sold to current connections for £38,000 after winning Irish maiden point-to-point in Janaury. Yard not known for too many winners in this sphere and will probably improve for the experience.
Teofilo gelding whose dam was placed as a juvenile in Group 2. Failed to make it to the track for Godolphin and makes debut here for new yard who do well with others' cast-offs. Certainly worth a market check.
Pulled up in both point-to-point outings and on that basis appears to have little credible chance in much better company on first Rules start
€42,000 Presenting gelding representing good yard who do well in these events. Dam was winning hurdler so pedigree suggests he could be up to making an impression here on debut.
£11,000 Geordieland gelding whose unraced dam is related to a number of winners. Yard not known for getting them ready on racecourse bow so others make more appeal.
Some promise on debut and better when fifth to subsequent Grade 2 Aintree Festival winner Macfabulous at Newbury last month. Going the right way and not out of it if taking another step forward.
Second in only point-to-point and subsequently sold for £21,000 to join current yard. Trainer can get one ready on debut so ceratinly worth at last a glance for any sign of market interest.
French-bred gelding whose dam is unraced half-sister to Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Djakadam. Yard rare visitor this far north so may run wel with fine jockey in the saddle.
Took quite a hold when beaten favourite and second at Carlisle last month having run promising third on debut. May have run into a decent horse last time and experience should give him some chance of mixing it with likely market principals.
Jeremy gelding cost €75,000 and represents good yard with champion jockey on board. Unraced dam related to a few fair winners so watch market for any sign of confidence on racecourse bow.
Cheaply bought Shirocco gelding who didn't show too much when well beaten on debut at Musselburgh last month. This is a much deeper race so is likely to struggle unless taking a massive step forward.
