Seven race maiden under all codes and finished a well beaten sixth in a novice hurdle on jumps debut over an extended 2m1f here a month ago. Others make more appeal.
Successful in a 3m point-to-point at Stradbally (good) in April. Is a half-brother to a number of useful performs including the stables Global Citizen and he is of interest in a first time tongue tie dropping in distance on Rules debut.
Fair 32L fourth in a 2m novice hurdle at Kempton (good) in April. Struggled twice in lowly AW handicaps subsequently however and is probably best watched at present.
Winner three times on the AW and was placed on turf in the spring. Well beaten on two most recent Flat outings however and market support would be notable on hurdles debut.
Debuted for this yard with a 26L fifth in a 2m3f novice hurdle at Fontwell (good) earlier this month. Hood is added to the tongue tie worn for the first time in that contest.
Impressed when winning by 5L in a 1m4f handicap at Epsom (heavy) at the end of last month. Failed to figure on sole previous hurdles start and would appreciate any overnight rain.
Decent third in a 2m novice hurdle at Worcester (good) in July but was held when falling at Bangor (good) the following month. Interesting to see how he performs.
Unraced Black Sam Bellamy gelding and a half-brother to classy novice hurdler Amaretto Rose. Worth a check in the market on racecourse debut.
Failed to shine in four starts on the Flat including on handicap debut over 7f at Chelmsford last month. Others hold stronger claims on hurdles debut.
Beaten 11L when finishing fifth of six in a 2m1f bumper at Exeter (good-to-soft) on debut in March. Gelded since and is an interesting runner switched to hurdles.
Failed to build on a promising second in a Wincanton (good-to-firm) bumper in the spring including when pulled up in a first time vivsor (absent here) on hurdles debut last month.
Point-to-point winner on yielding-to-soft ground over 3m in February last year.Held in that sphere since and switches to hurdles following a heavy defeat over fences at Warwick (2m4f, soft) in March.
