Finished a promising second when debuting in a 2m bumper at Huntingdon (good-to-soft) in March. Likely to have improved for the run and is a notable runner in this contest.
Successful twice from three starts in point-to-points most recently by 3L in a good ground contest at Dawstown in May. Purchased for £48,000 later that month and is interesting on Rules debut having had wind surgery in the interim.
Placed twice in point-to-points in spring 2018 but was beaten 40L when 11th in a competitive big field maiden hurdle over an extended 2m at Newbury (soft) on Rules debut last December. Worth a check in the market on first start since wind surgery.
Impressive 15L winner of a point-to-point at Bangor (3m, good-to-soft) in February and fetched £150,000 at the sales subsequently. Successful in a point-to-point bumper at Aintree (2m1f, good) subsequently and holds strong claims on hurdling debut.
Placed on sole completion in point-to-points and finished runner-up in a point-to-point bumper at Tipperary (2m2f, good) in May. Worth a check in the market on hurdling and stable debut having been purchased for £35,000 subsequently.
Broke his maiden at the third time of asking in bumpers when winning by 5L in a 2m1f event at Carlisle (soft) in March. Represents a good yard and is an interesting contender on hurdling debut.
Placed in a point-to-point and in a heavy ground bumper at Newcastle over an extended 2m on Rules debut in March. Decent seventh on good going at Warwick (2m) subsequently and is making his first start over hurdles.
Victorious by a head in a 3m point-to-point at Upcott Cross (good-to-soft) in May. Joined a top yard and he is worth a check in the market on debut under Rules.
Bumper winner over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) on debut last November. Decent efforts in defeat twice subsequently most recently when 11L fourth at Ffos Las (2m, soft) in April.
