Decent staying hurdler who acts on soft and won on his chase debut at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good to soft) in May. Tailed off on recent reappearance at Cheltenham, so blinkers now fitted to help him to try bounce back. Claims if he can.
Decent hurdler at up to 2m5f, but stepped up to 3m successfully on his recent chase debut, when a ready winner over C&D (good). Genuine soft ground is a slight concern, but he has to be considered.
Won 4-7 over hurdles, where he stayed 3m. Last seen going close at Ayr on his chase debut (3m, good) in May. Open to improvement, has won on soft, and looks a player.
Comfortable winner of a heavy ground Irish point in spring 2018 and changed hands for €90,000 soon after. Not seen since then, and probably one to watch on this delayed rules debut, unless market vibes particularly positive.
Multiple hurdles winner at up to 3m, all on testing ground. Wouldn't have the ability of some of this field in that sphere. Held on 2m4f chase debut at Uttoxeter last month. Can probably come on for that now back over 3m, but needs improvement.
