Won a 1m7f French race at Maisons-Laffitte on soft ground towards the end of last season. Disappointing hurdles bow (favourite) at Bangor in June and well held one Flat run since a wind op. Should be better in time.
Didn't impress with jumping in last month's hurdling introduction at Newton Abbot. Plenty to work on in new headgear here.
Has the ability to get involved but was badly out of sorts for previous trainer. Need change of scenery to work oracle, with positive jockey booking a plus.
Badly needs to relax in his races, having shown clear tendency to pull his way through. Ability lurks if consenting to showcase it.
Point-to-point winner, showed better form when tackling this trip last time at Ffos Las (second). Enters calculations as a result.
Found only short-price favourite too strong on hurdles bow at Southwell in June over 2m4f. Well clear of the rest and leading claims of going one better.
Ordinary Flat performer, midfield at Uttoxeter on hurdles bow lasts month (2m, good) and may need more time to adapt in this sphere.
Lord Shanakill gelding with some winner in pedigree. Market should offer some guidance on first trip to the racecourse.
Hasn't progressed on the Flat, makes hurdles bow here and likely has it all to do against stablemate Whenhellbrookeloose, as well as the rest.
Couple of solid efforts in bumpers at Newton Abbot so far, goes jumping for the first time now and possible improver.
