13:50 Plumpton Mon 22 April 2019
Dual Flat winner and victorious on good-to-soft ground over hurdles at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) in February. Decent efforts in defeat since including when sixth in a Grade 3 handicap on his penultimate start. Likely to play a leading role.
Built on some promising hurdles efforts when winning by 6L in a maiden contest over C&D on good ground a fortnight ago. Justified odds-on favouritism that day and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Good 7L second over an extended 2m1f on soft ground in February but finished a well beaten 33L second over the same C&D in similar conditions the following month. Interesting to see how he fares.
Held in four bumpers including here on her penultimate start and was pulled up on hurdles debut at Huntingdon (2m, good) last month. Probably best watched at present.
Placed on the Flat but beaten 45L by Zanzi Win when sixth of seven in a maiden hurdle over C&D on hurdling debut earlier this month. Others make more appeal.
