Progressive hurdler after wind surgery winning six out of seven starts before ending his season with a poor effort (just about the first black mark on his CV). Best of these over hurdles; an exciting chasing prospect.
Showed improved form to get off the mark over hurdles on his handicap debut doing well to win over a sharp 2m at Wincanton (would be better suited by stiffer tests). Pulled up when last seen (looked amiss); first run since; chasing debut.
Over three years since he scored a novice hurdle win when with Alan King but has failed to complete in four out of his five starts for this yard. Makes his chasing debut facing an almost impossible task.
The sole runner with any chasing experience but proved a big disappointment on his one try over fences before (jumped poorly). A winner back over hurdles at the end of last year his previous attempt in this sphere leaves misgivings.
Useful hurdler who failed to win last season although was lightly raced often travelling well but not quite getting the job done. Stable won this last year (in a walkover); should go well but does have something to find on hurdles form with Ballymoy.
Took his first two hurdling assignments before displaying some improved form in subsequent contests most notably when last seen in a Cheltenham novice (second to a sharp improver). Bred for this sphere; interesting newcomer.
Ballymoy (8/11), Thistle Do Nicely (4/1), Nube Negra (5/1), Commanche Red (11/1), Equus Amadeus (12/1), Dun Bay Creek (150/1)
