Good second in a 2m4f maiden hurdle at Worcester (good) in June. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is absent stepping up in trip on debut for this stable.
Beaten 15L when sixth in a 3m point-to-point at Ballindenisk (yielding-to-soft) in December. Purchased for £7,000 later that month and interesting to see how he fares on Rules debut.
Ran well to finish 4L second in a point-to-point at Rathcannon (3m, good) in November last year. Purchased for £55,000 subsequently and is of interest on debut under Rules.
Showed good form when placed in a Grade 2 at Sandown (2m4f, heavy) in December last year. Disappointing when beaten 10L in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in March however. Tongue tie tried on debut for this stable.
Well held in a couple of point-to-points and it was a similar story when 79L sixth in a 2m4f maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter (soft) on Rules debut recently. Others make more appeal.
Bumper winner at Hexham (2m, good-to-soft) in March and ran well when runner-up to a previous winner on hurdling debut at Kelso (2m5f, soft) two weeks ago. Remains open to improvement.
Decent effort in finishing 11L second in a bumper over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good-to-soft) when debuting in March. Likely more needed switched to hurdles for the first time if he is to take this event.
Off the mark at the third time of asking when victorious by 6L in a 3m point-to-point at Bangor (soft) in March.Worth a check in the market on Rules debut.
