14:45 Chepstow Fri 11 October 2019
Fair 22L fourth in a bumper at Plumpton (good-to-soft) in April last year but looked one in need of time when a remote 10th since in a Uttoxeter maiden in May this year.
Moderate form in bumpers before hurdles debut saw him run to a similar level when ninth of 14 at Warwick last month. Can improve but has a lot to find.
Dual Wincanton bumper winner rather unsurprisingly found the Champion Bumper at the Festival last season a tall order (10th of 14) but he nevertheless rates an interesting recruit for the champion trainer.
Point-to-point third ran just once in bumpers when filling the same spot at Bangor last April. Sort to do better now over obstacles so could well be in the hunt for some place money.
Maiden of three point-to-points making his rules debut and looks one best watched with others from that sphere boasting stronger form.
Finished midfield in two novice events at Chepstow last November before going absent afterwards. Not seen enough to be optimistic.
Pulled up in first two point-to-points but won last one well and was bought for €75,000 by connections afterwards. Interesting debutant to rules is one of two for the yard.
102-rated Flat performer for Tom Dascombe who stays 2m (third in Northumberland Plate) looks an exciting recruit to the hurdles game and having joined this yard he can be expected to be an assured jumper. Highly respected.
AW scorer on the Flat and showed a fair level with his rating of 87 suggesting a decent recruit. Proschema however was a considerably better Flat horse so hard to prefer him to that rival.
Placed in a couple of point-to-points but set some immensely difficult tasks last season in fruitless hurdles campaign. This more realistic but still not seen enough to fancy him.
