Twice gone close in handicaps since joining this yard with both performances of similar worth although he did fade late on last time, raises trip doubts. Looks the type who can score over hurdles; may find this 2m7f stretching his suspect stamina.
Just the one start to his name so far that coming when falling (in touch at the time) in a point-to-point in May. Now makes his debut under Rules; half-brother to bumper winner/useful hurdler Better Getalong; weak event so worth a betting check.
Fair on the Flat with a couple of yards despite only winning once but hasn't really gone on from what was a reasonably promising hurdles debut. Disappointed the last twice he's run; first-time visor needs to make a vast difference.
Three-time point-to-point winner but the last of those victories came over a year ago and he's been well beaten in most starts since then including in a hunter chase. Now makes a belated hurdles debut; hard to see him getting involved.
Improving with each start over hurdles in a gradual rather than progressive manner showing his best form so far last time when second to Slaine (runs in the last). Did fade at the death suggesting shorter rather than further may be required.
Dual bumper winner when with Brian Ellison but disappointing on the Flat since including for this yard. Typically took a strong hold on his hurdles debut, now upped 7f in trip; has plenty of question marks against him.
Beat two rivals on his bumper debut and as suspected that form has proved weak and he's run poorly in another bumper (under a penalty) and in two novice hurdles. Hopes now pinned on a 7f rise in trip to reverse his fortunes.
Stablemate of one of the leading lights in this having been bought for £6,000 (placed in four of her nine Irish point-to-points); makes her Rules debut. Wouldn't need to be that smart to make an impression, worth a check in the market.
