Not seen on the Flat for this yard (dual winning hurdler); raced only on the level as a three-year-old in Ireland (won a 1m2f maiden on last Flat start). Not badly weighted on his return to this sphere although his jumping form has been below-par.
First runner for the trainer with one who scored twice in handicaps for Charles Hills last year over 1m. Form this year (0-9), proved below that level for the most part; his most recent starts making it look like he's just going through the motions.
Back in trip to 1m2f having been tried over further on all three AW starts this year shaping with credit and promise on each occasion; travelled well over 1m6f last time. Connections appear to be struggling to find her trip, will need a strong pace.
Fair maiden who wasn't disgraced on his comeback run (failed to settle); had shown promise over this trip last year. Upped to 1m4f last time he left the impression he would improve for the run, will need a strong gallop to feature over this distance.
Took this last year (one of his two course wins) off a 6lb higher mark; won twice on the AW since off much higher marks (better on synthetics). Generally apprentice ridden (won for today's rider), shaped better than his finishing position last time.
Modest sort who hasn't won for over two years but did turn in one of his better efforts here over a longer trip last time. Has an unappealing strike-rate though (2-21) with inconsistency running through his profile; limited appeal.
Badly hampered over this trip in a Nottingham apprentice handicap last time he's excused that run although it's harder to give him a free pass for most of his recent form. Yet to win a race (Flat; 0-9) he's modest at best, needs others to falter.
