Winning pointer but yet to make any great impression under Rules. Pulled up three of last four starts, including last time at Market Rasen. Fifth over C&D previous start but ultimately well beaten. First time tongue-tie and cheekpieces now applied.
Stayed on well in first time blinkers to land Plumpton 3m1f handicap hurdle in May. Chase debut her after summer break and this winner of her only point-to-point could well give a good account of herself.
Only real form in five starts came when third in Wetherby novices hurdle last December. Ran poorly in three subsequent races and makes chasing bow here for yard with 1-13 record here in chases.
In fine form last month landing 2m3f Stratford novices handicap chase then following up in 3m hurdle at Perth 10 days later. Raised 7lb but conditional rider claims 7lb back so has a good chance of completing the hat-trick.
Ex-Irish 15-race maiden who failed narrowly to make a winning British bow for current handler when just touched off in Cartmel selling handicap hurdle in May. Has run creditably in two starts since and now makes chasing debut. Not without hope.
Returned from 90-day break to land first chase win at Newton Abbot in May off 5lb lower mark but never got into it when distant fourth at Stratford last time. Chance if returning to best and stays well.
