Victorious over 1m4f on the Flat at Chepstow (good-to-soft) last time out. Worth a check in the market having been beaten 4L when fifth at Warwick (2m, good-to-soft) in January on his most recent hurdles outing.
Pulled up on both starts since finishing third in a handicap chase over an extended 2m1f at Bangor (soft) last December. Probably best watched returning to hurdles on first start since January.
Successful four times most recently over an extended 2m2f at Newton Abbot (good-to-firm) in July. Held on both starts since and others make more appeal.
Followed up a maiden hurdle victory at Worcester (2m, good) in August with a 16L third over the same C&D in handicap company a month later. Interesting to see how he fares.
17 race maiden finished a fair seventh in a 2m handicap hurdle at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in April. Others hold stronger claims on seasonal debut.
Beaten 57L when last of six over an extended 2m4f at Southwell (good) in July. Had wind surgery since and market support would be notable with blinkers tried for the first time.
Making his handicap debut when finishing 26L fifth in a 2m4f event at Worcester (good-to-soft) in May. Remains open to improvement and is worth a check in the market on return from a break.
Finished a neck second in a 2m handicap chase on good ground here in April. Tongue tie and cheekpieces (both absent here) for the first time that day retained when finishing well beaten at Southwell (good) subsequently.
Good second in a handicap over an extended 2m on good-to-firm ground on the Flat at Lingfield in August. Well beaten both subsequent starts in that sphere and is probably best watched at present.
Decent effort in finishing third in a five runner handicap over an extended 1m5f at Chelmsford last month. Returning from a break that day and is making his handicap debut in this sphere with a visor tried for the first time.
Nine time winner ran well to finish 10L second in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m at Bangor (good) at the end of August. Races off a 1lb lower mark on this occasion and is well handicapped on his old form.
Registered his fourth victory over fences when successful in a 2m handicap chase at Warwick (good-to-firm) last time out. Notable runner looking for his first hurdles success off a 5lb lower mark in this event.
Best effort in four starts over hurdles so far came when 11L third over an extended 2m at Bangor (good) on his penultimate start. Failed to back that up behind Throckley last time out and interesting to see how he fares on handicap debut.
Held in three novice/maiden hurdles since joiing this stable earlier this year including when 21L seventh over 2m1f at Sedgefield (good) in August. Useful conditional in the saddle on handicap debut.
Decent efforts in defeat in three starts since winning by 6L over 2m at Uttoxeter (good) in July. Races off a mark 4lb lower than when 11L fifth at Worcester (2m, good) last month.
Habitual front runner finished a well beaten 26L eighth over 2m1f at Market Rasen (good) in a handicap chase on seasonal debut in August. Likely to have improved for the run and better expected on return to hurdles.
Made a winning debut for this stable when victorious by 2L over an extended 2m2f at Stratford (good) in August. Disappointing favourite at Fontwell (good-to-firm) seven days later however.
