Took this off similar mark in 2017 but going through a lean spell at present and needs to bounce back in a major way to repeat that success.
Never figured in hotter race at Cartmel last time after first fence blunder but back in right grade now and Brian Hughes has on and finished second on him in just the two attempts. Short list material.
Sole win last two years was gained in a selling hurdle and although his Newbury second in December makes him of interest, has been absent since tame run the following month.
Has yet to click in two runs for this stable and best form at shorter but should be reaching peak fitness and worth monitoring in the market.
Still a maiden but several placed efforts and shaped well enough when second on recent chasing debut to be of interest particularly with this longer trip looking sure to suit.
Won at this venue over hurdles last October but followed that with two poor runs and didn't entirely convince on chasing debut in May. Could have more to come but bit to prove for now.
Doesn't take much racing but now having third run in as many months and showed enough on chasing debut behind a winner who has followed up since to merit consideration with that experience behind him.
Lightly raced with Amanda Perrett and off the mark at Fontwell in May. Has since joined top yard for £12,000 who do so well with these new recruits and 6lb rise may not be enough to stop her.
