Dual winner this campaign including by 12L over an extended 2m3f at Bangor (good) three weeks ago. Also successful over an extended 2m at the same venue in May and is likely to play a leading role stepping up in distance.
Well beaten 40L sixth in a 2m1f novice hurdle on good ground here when making his seasonal debut last time out. Likely capable of better and is worth a check in the market in this contest.
Struggled in a bumper at Exeter (2m1f, good) in May last year and was well beaten when falling late on when making his hurdles debut over this trip at Wincanton (good) in January. More needed on debut for this yard.
Ran well to finish 7L second in a novice hurdle over an extended 2m7f at Hexham (good-to-soft) in March and finished 3L fourth at Bangor (2m7f, good) the following month on his only subsequen start. One for the shortlist on return from a break.
Beaten a head in a 3m point-to-point in Ireland in the spring but has struggled on both starts since switched to Rules racing including over an extended 2m2f on good-to-soft ground when making her hurdles debut here recently.
Point-to-point winner over 3m at Larkhill (good) in March and signs of ability in three starts so far over hurdles. More needed than when 39L fifth at Worcester (2m4f, good) last time out however.
