Point-to-point winner and winning debut at Exeter over hurdles when making all. Didn't run up to that when fourth on return visit there but did stumble entering straight and capable of better at this trip.
Glimmer of ability in bumpers but showed nothing in two runs over hurdles at shorter and needs this longer trip and drier ground needs to inspire him.
Creditable debut second on good ground at Ascot and later run there can be excused as ground was soft, and as a son of Presenting should be much happier back on this ground. Top yard in fine form and should be hard to beat.
First two runs over hurdles were decent but disappointing at Christmas and no better at Exeter last week. Stable happy to bring him out again quickly but bit to prove now.
No sign of ability in pair of bumpers and two hurdles including at this trip last time and probably of more interest when handicapping after this.
Went backwards in bumpers after second start and pulled up on hurdling debut at 200/1 last month so impossible to fancy on evidence to date.
Bought for £70,000 after Point-to-point win in December but tailed off last on Bumper debut at Ffos Las and needs to improve plenty for this switch to hurdling.
