Completed a hat-trick in novice hurdles whenw inning over an extended 2m7f at Hexham (good) in October. Fair effort on handicap debut at Cheltenham (good) last month and is one to note upped in trip on chase debut.
Dual handicap hurdle winner earlier this year including by 10L over an extended 3m2f at Stratford (good) in March. Good third at Cheltenham (3m, good) subsequently and is interesting on debut over fences.
Dual hurdles winner and completing for the first time over fences when 24L fifth over an extended 2m6f at Newbury (good-to-soft) in December. More needed on return from a break.
Beaten a head when finishing runner-up over 2m4f at Huntingdon (good) on chase debut last October. Raised 10lb for that effort and interesting to see how he fares on first start since.
Good ½L second over an extended 2m6f at Stratford (good-to-soft) on his penultimate start. Step back up in trip should suit following an 8L fifth at Exeter (2m3f, good) last month.
Four time winning hurdler including over an extended 3m1f at Hereford (good-to-firm) last October. Struggled over fences since and market support would be notable off a mark 7lb lower than for that Hereford victory.
