Has run to the same level in three novice hurdles, very much looking like he needs further than a bare 2m. Might be better off in handicaps and might find one or two too good again today.
Only moderate on the Flat but put in a perfectly respectable first effort over hurdles at Warwick last month, weakening late to finish fifth; possibly one for handicaps but a good showing here wouldn't be the biggest surprise.
Hurdles debut today, just one win in 29 starts on the Flat and possible stamina issues could arise if the ground gets a lot softer. Makes little appeal.
Winner off a mark of 79 (for Clive Cox) on the Flat, ran well on hurdles debut for this yard when second to Golden Taipan here, form that gives him a solid chance, but did flatten out late on, and needs to settle a little better here.
Nicely bred type, hurdles debut today, but won only start, a bumper at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, very tidily. Looks to have a turn of foot and if jumping fluently, looks to have a good chance of making it 2-2.
Well beaten on only start in a novice hurdle at Sedgefield and looks to face an impossible task on that.
Wasn't up to a lot on the Flat, winning just once, and showed very little on hurdles debut here a couple of weeks ago; makes next to no appeal.
Not seen out the best part of three years, only start coming when well beaten in a Fontwell novice hurdle back in the January of 2017; connections presumably think there's still an engine but cannot be entertained as the likely winner here.
Progressing nicely, winner of two of his three bumper starts, including under a penalty last time, never an easy thing to do; yard ticking along and this one should take a hand in the finish if he jumps with fluency on hurdles debut.
Useful on the Flat last year, winning at Sandown off a mark of 73, but has looked regressive lately and needs this change of code to wake his ideas up a bit. Good jockey booking though, so worth a glance in the market for any support.
No sign of any ability in 17 starts and looks booked in for another tough time of it for a yard that hasn't had a winner for as long as you can remember; cannot possibly be entertained.
