Failed to beat a single rival in three bumpers this year, and was beaten a country mile when tailed off in an okay quality contest at Worcester (2m; good) last month. Readily opposed.
Ex-Irish sort who is a new recruit to the yard. Cost £60,000 at the 2019 Cheltenham May sale. Thereabouts in three starts (two bumpers & a maiden hurdle) when trained by Ms Margaret Mullins. Trainer/jockey combo going well and he has decent claims.
Yeats gelding. Cost €6,200 as a yearling. Half-brother to the talented Drumbaloo, hurdle winner Charlie Cook and dual bumper scorers Vintage Supreme/Royal Supreme. One of the better bred sorts in this race, and should have a role to play.
Possesses probably the strongest form on offer in this race, when making the frame in a couple of decent juvenile contests last season in behind the likes of Friend Or Foe & Fanfan Du Seiul. Tough to beat if running to that same level of form.
2-19 on the flat and now makes hurdles debut. Not shown much on the level for a while now, and has failed to make an impact all year in class five/class six handicaps. More of a handicap project.
Point-To-Point winner who makes hurdles debut on seasonal reappearance. Contested a couple of decent bumpers last season, but always likely to improve once sent over obstacles. One of the likelier players for top jumps trainer/jockey combo.
0-8 on the flat and rated only 41. Now makes his debut in the jumps sphere, and has plenty to prove. Last seen finishing a well-beaten eighth of nine in a class six handicap at Lingfield (1m5f; standard) in August. Impossible to fancy.
Making hurdles debut after a trio of consistent efforts in bumpers, most recently when third at Fontwell (2m1f; good). Needs to improve on the bare form of those efforts, and what she has shown so far.
