Progressive in bumpers last term, although didn't need to improve when off the mark here in March. Will appreciate this increased test of stamina now hurdling, and looks the pick of a pair from top stable here.
Bumper winner here on racecourse debut, and better effort over hurdles when a good ½L second of 13 to Roseriver Has in a 2m3f maiden here late last month. Sets the standard for others to match.
Brother to winning hurdler Robin Thyme, but jumped erratically when a modest sixth of 9 on his hurdles debut at Bellewstown in May. Likely to leave that bare form behind in time, but others preferred now.
Has run badly on two of his four starts, but showed what he's capable of when second of 11 to An Fraoch Mor in a 2m maiden hurdle at Wexford last time. Longer trip will suit on pedigree, and holds every chance if in same form.
Gradually progressive in novice hurdles, his best effort when a front-running 8 lengths third of 8 to Nibblers Charm over 2m5½f here last time, although did have the run of things. Fair bit more required now.
Pulled-up on Rules bow for Robert Tyner, but much improved on debut for current yard when third of 14 to Well Set Up in a mares maiden at Roscommon. This is tougher, but she's likely to improve further and is worthy of respect.
Won a maiden point, but last on sole bumper start (also disqualified to add insult to injury), and tailed off on both starts over hurdles. Her future lies in low-grade handicaps after another run.
