Well beaten tenth in a selling hurdle over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) last time out. Cheekpieces tried for the first time on this occasion.
Successful in a similar race to this over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) on his penultimate start and finished a decent fourth in a six runner contest at Hexham (2m, good) subsequently. Notable runner returning to selling company.
In decent form over fences of late including when 3L third over an extended 2m at Worcester (good) last time out. One to note down in grade on his return to hurdling.
Placed in a selling handicap on the Flat at Brighton (1m2f, good-to-firm) 12 months ago. .Sole start for this yard came when 69L last of eight in a C&D maiden hurdle last month. Probably best watched at present.
Good 7L second in a 2m1f bumper on good-to-firm ground on Rules debut here in July. Regressed since then however and was beaten 56L on hurdles debut at Worcester (2m4f, good) in first time blinkers (visor tried here) last time out.
Best effort since wind surgery in June came when 26L tenth of 11 over 2m1f on good-to-soft ground here last month. Blinkers worn for the first time that day replaced with a visor (first time) on this occasion.
Decent effort in finishing fourth in a seven runner bumper over 2m1f on good-to-soft ground here last month. Struggling when unseating on hurdles debut at Worcester (2m4f, good) in a first time hood (absent here) subsequently however.
Struggled in recent starts including in first time cheekpieces at Worcester (2m7f, good) in a handicap hurdle earlier this month. Others make more appeal.
