Scored over hurdles at the third attempt at Newton Abbot over 2m1f last time out, prevailing by 7L on what was his handicap debut after going off at 6/1. Returns to juvenile company here. One for the shortlist.
Made a winning start to his hurdles career when he scored at Fontwell (2m1½f). He made a couple of errors on his first run but he made all in the contest. Leading contender to follow up with more success.
Featured seven times on the Flat without success. He was seventh of 15 at Ffos Las (1m6f) two runs ago, while he then finished third of 10 last time at Thirsk (1m4f). Set for his first appearance over hurdles here. Best to watch for now.
Was a winner on the AW at Chelmsford (1m2f) earlier this year during his Flat career. Made his debut over hurdles last time at Fontwell (2m1½) where he could only finish fifth of seven. Others makes more of an appeal.
Has struggled in his two outings over hurdles so far. He was pulled up at Stratford (2m½f) on his debut and then was a long way down the field when he came home eighth of nine at Carmtel (2m1f). Hard to make a case for.
Didn't come close to scoring on his four runs on the Flat which were at sprint distances. His last outing was back in November when he had just one horse behind him in an 11 runner field at Chelmsford (6f) on the AW. Best to watch on hurdles debut.
Was successful twice on the Flat with his latest win coming at Redcar over 1m2f. Switched yards earlier this month where he is now set for his debut over hurdles. Big contender here if he transfers his form across from the Flat.
A maiden on the Flat who made his opening start over hurdles at Cartmel (2m1f) last month, finishing fourth of nine runners, 18½L off the winner. Hard to fancy him on what he has shown so far on the track.
