Spider Flight gelding who cost €45,000 as a three-year-old. Well held in both hurdling starts last month when racing to a similar standard. Plenty of improvement required.
Beaten a total of 170 lengths in first two starts over hurdles and pulled up on third for previous yard in Ireland. Best watched on stable debut and first run since February.
Pulled up in lone point-to-point and completely tailed off in both hurdle starts at Uttoxeter last month. Very hard to make any sort of case for.
Left point-to-point form behind with some promise from the front in two hurdles starts so far. Lacked a change of gears but place potential in this company.
3L Irish point winner on debut before joining this stable for €60,000. Raced to a similar level when second and then a winner in two Stratford bumper runs. Stable in good form and a likely contender on hurdling debut.
Boasted some decent bumper form without winning and built on promise of hurdling debut to appreciate the step up to 2m4f when winning at Uttoxeter. Stable won this last year and although the drop in trip is a negative, she sets the standard.
Bought unraced for £12,000 in May 2018. Pulled hard on January bumper debut but ran very poorly next time at Market Rasen, Best watched on hurdling debut.
Has shown nothing in two bumper starts (including when refusing to race) and on recent hurdling debut. Remains easy to dismiss.
