Made short work of a Worcester maiden hurdle (2m4f, good; 11-8f) on stable debut/first jumping test this month. Penalised now, obvious contender with improvement likely.
Suited by the switch to handicaps and a longer trip when scoring at Ludlow (3m, good/firm) in April; travelled strongly. Odds-on casualty when second at Cartmel since, though the winner's easy Fontwell win next time suggests that was a good effort.
Modest form under rules in 2017, including wide-margin defeat here over timber on sole attempt at this game. Fell on point-to-point return recently and hard to make case for.
Was the 12L winner of a Wincanton bumper in December 2017, but subsequently well beaten in two further starts and last November on hurdles bow here (2m, heavy). Back from latest break, needs to improve.
Made a promising debut at in a bumper here in December when he was third but his two starts since then have been poor. First run back since a wind-op. Much more needed to be competitive.
Irish point-to-point winner produced decent effort in a Worcester novice hurdle (2m7f, good; 4-6f) last month in first-time cheekpieces, though still settled for second prize in four-runner race. Expensive to follow, blinkers tried now.
Progressed in three runs in maiden/novice hurdles this spring but rather disappointing on handicap bow at Ludlow (2m, good; 13-2) last month when pulled up. Immediately upped in distance.
Wasn't unfancied for Exeter bumper in April 2018 but beaten to the tune of 32L and hasn't been spotted since. Starts hurdles career for new trainer and likely best watched.
