Improving with racing and came good when victorious over an extended 2m2f at Exeter (good) in a novice hurdle in May. Carries a penalty for that victory and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Maiden hurdle winner over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good) in April. Placed twice subsequently but well held fourth over 2m1f here when returning from a break recently.
Failed to figure in two Rules starts in Ireland and was beaten 77L in a 2m1f novice hurdle on good ground here on stable debut at the end of last month. Others make more appeal.
Beaten a short-head in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m at Stratford (good) in July and finished a decent third at Worcester (2m, good) on stable debut last time out. Of interest once more.
Struggled in two Rules starts in 2018 but fared better when runner-up in a 3m point-to-point at Loughrea (good) last October. Interesting to see how he fares on stable debut.
Point-to-point winner over 3m on soft ground at Belclare in March. Purchased for £19,500 subsequently and is worth a check in the market on Rules debut.
Fair 29L eighth in a 2m1f bumper at Exeter (good) on debut in May. Interesting to see how he fares on debut over hurdles.
Placed in a point-to-point at Curraghmore (3m, good) in April. Purchased for £6,000 subsequently and more needed than when finishing well beaten in a bumper on good-to-soft ground over 2m1f here on Rules debut last month.
