Gelding by little used sire Let The Lion Roar bought for £6,000 after finishing third in his second point-to-point at Castletown-Geoghegan. Best watched on debut under rules.
Stable debut for this five-year-old who won four chases in his Native France including two Grade Three events before fetching €180,000 at Arqana last November. Winless over hurdles but very likely that changes here.
Similar level of ability in both runs in bumpers before being pulled up a long way from homer here over hurdles latest. Can improve but makes no appeal.
French bumper winner but made little impression since joining this yard in similar events and over hurdles the last twice. Looks the sort to do better once handicapping.
Fourth of five and pulled up in two Irish point-to-points before joining this yard for £10,000. Best watched on debut under rules.
Point-to-point winner on good ground in Ireland in March but pulled up here and last of 14 at Warwick since racing under rules so very much one to watch for now.
Unbeaten five-year-old won bumpers at Wetherby and Southwell at the back end of last season. Didn't win with a huge amount in hand in either but nevertheless rates a promising recruit and leading player.
1L second to re-opposing Old Jeroboam on debut at Southwell before making no mistake at Warwick in May where he won with plenty in hand. Likely to be ready for this hurdles bow given connections so commands respect.
Lone mare in the field finished third of five beaten 4L in a Southwell bumper last month. Tall order on hurdles bow but it's still very early days.
