Tried in various headgear which is left off today; tongue-tie remains. Two runs over fences so far. Yet to show same level of form from previous yard.
Stable first string. Won a handicap chase at Clonmel last time out (second horse has won since). Winning hurdler and a half-brother to five winners. Appreciates decent ground and no reason to see why he can't score again.
Second-string for trainer. Now tries handicaps after three runs over fences, that could well bring about improvement. Winner of a maiden hurdle in November. Half-brother to two winners including decent hurdler Guard Of Honour.
Dual purpose performer. Winner over hurdles and on the AW. Yet to score over fences but has several decent placed efforts. Consistent sort who could well run into the placings.
Wears first time cheekpieces and tongue-tie. Dual purpose horse who's small yard has been amongst the winners lately. Hasn't been in the best of form but first time headgear could bring about improvement.
Winning hurdler having his fourth run over fences; third at Perth last time out in a handicap chase. Cannot completely rule out but may find a few too good.
Finished third again at Wexford last week, over 2m4f; drops back to 2m here. Top jockey booking takes the eye. Impossible to rule out but most definitely needs to step up.
In the twilight of his career and pulled up on his last start, unplaced in both starts prior to that. Cannot recommend here.
Winner of a point-to-point over 3m in December. Yet to show much in five starts under Rules. Has too much to find here to recommend.
