Runner-up on soft ground at Carlisle on debut in March, though hasn't bettered that run in two further outings at Wetherby and Stratford, needs a step forward to be landing this prize.
Well held in pair of Irish point-to-points last year, now makes rules debut for new handler; yard 0-9 with bumper runners previous 12 months.
Flat-bred sort, raced keenly on debut at Wincanton in May (sent off 7-2) and duly faded in the closing stages to be last of seven, beaten 27L. Interesting to see if there's confidence again.
Beat Hollow gelding with pair of wide margin defeats in Irish point-to-point last year on his record. Has joined new yard ahead of rules bow (trainer 0-11 with runners in bumpers).
Most Improved gelding, racecourse newcomer and in excellent hands with trainer Dan Skelton, boasting a 23% strike-rate with bumper runners in 2019. Needs a market check.
