Won a bumper on his racecourse bow at Clonmel in 2017 for Willie Mullins. Below par in a couple of maiden hurdles at Downpatrick and Punchestown last year, changing stables in between.
High-class bumper performer who was third in a Grade 2 at Aintree and second in a Grade 3 at Punchestown in May under her owner. Professionally ridden for first time now, and stands out at this level.
Bumper winner at Killarney in July, but that was a modest contest, and she was well beaten (having left Ger Hourigan) on her debut over hurdles at Listowel last month.
Promising start when landing a 2¼m bumper at Downpatrick on good going before disappointing when odds-on at Perth. Has been soundly beaten on both starts over hurdles, and suddenly has plenty to prove.
Has been beaten a long way on both starts to date, and seems very limited on early evidence.
Better effort in bumpers when fourth at Down Royal in January. Shaped as if better for the run when fifth of 14 to Road To Dubai in a maiden at Ballinrobe on hurdling bow. Has plenty to find on bare form, but should do better.
Pulled up between the flags, but has fared better over hurdles at 2m, finishing a respectable sixth of 18 to Gold Seal in a maiden at Roscommon last time. Vulnerable to unexposed sorts, but should improve further.
Son of Morozov who pulled up on his only start in point-to-points. Makes scant appeal now hurdling.
From a good French family and shaped with plenty of promise for the future when 11¼ lengths eighth of 16 to Bua Boy in a 2m maiden hurdle at Cork on debut. Place claims with normal improvement.
Scorpion half-brother to bumper winner/fair hurdler Benny In Milan. Likely to need more of a test, but won't need to be anything special to be in the mix for a place on racecourse debut.
Fair form at best in bumpers,. but has achieve little in two starts over hurdles, jumping badly even before taking an early fall on her most recent start.
Hinted at ability in a Wexford bumper, but soundly beaten switched to hurdles at Roscommon recently, and can't be fancied on the back of that woeful effort.
Mustameet half-sister to bumper winner/useful hurdler Laser Light. Perhaps unfair to crab her too much on the basis that she pulled up on her only start in points, but still not easy to consider on Rules bow.
Dam won over hurdles, but this daughter of Le Fou has offered nothing in two starts under Rules to date, and not expected to get involved.
Improving with experience, his best effort when second of 19 to Festival d'Ex in Goffs Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown in the spring with this headgear combination tried. Solid place claims if translating that form to new discipline. Reserve 1
