Won twice and placed twice from five starts since returning from wind surgery. Victorious by a neck in a four runner 2m1f novice hurdle at Aintree (good) in May and is a leading player on return to action.
Made a winning hurdles debut when successful by 5L in a 2m1f novice hurdle at Sedgefield (good) last month. Notable runner with a top jockey booked to ride.
Successful twice over hurdles and finished a good fourth in a Listed handicap over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) in July. Struggled off a mark of 125 subsequently and is one to note in this contest.
Returned from a break with a 15L fourth over an extended 2m1f in a novice hurdle contest at Fontwell (good) earlier this month. More needed if he is to take this event.
Winner on the Flat for previous stable but beaten 46L when fifth over an extended 2m at Stratford (good) on stable and hurdles debut last time out. Probably best watched at present.
Nine race maiden on the Flat and well held in a 1m4f handicap at Kempton last time out. Others make more appeal on hurdles debut.
Shown form in bumpers including when 11L fourth over an extended 2m at Stratford (good) last month. Worth a check in the market on hurdling debut.
Debuted for this yard with an 18½L fourth in a maiden hurdle over this C&D on good ground back in May. Improvement needed if he is to take this contest.
Point-to-point winner on good ground in Ireland in March but pulled up in a 2m7f novice hurdle at Worcester (good) on Rules and stable debut earlier this month. Tongue tie tried for the first time dropping markedly in distance.
Place chances when falling late on in a maiden hurdle over this C&D on good going in May. First start since wind surgery that day and is an interesting runner in this event.
Well beaten in four starts so far including in hurdles contests the last twice. Probably best watched having finished 38L fifth over an extended 2m2f at Newton Abbot (good-to-soft) last month.
Put a fall on hurdles debut behind him when 45L fourth in a 2m novice hurdle at Ludlow (good) in April. More needed if she is to take this event.
Ran well when 8L second in a heavy ground bumper at Chepstow in April last year. Ran out having tried to make all in a bumper at Bangor (good) in the spring on only subsequent start. Hood tried for the first time.
Well beaten in all three starts so far including over C&D on hurdles debut at the end of May. Others make more appeal on return from a break.
