Foreign import who won a maiden on the flat at Cagnes-sur-mer (1m2f; standard) in France for Jean-Claude Rouget. Difficult to gauge the strength of his overall form. Watch out for positive market moves.
0-11 on the flat, but was largely consistent for most of those runs. Now starts new chapter for top national hunt yard, and is sent straight over hurdles. Handles soft ground. Check market vibes.
No match for Maria Magdalena (8/15f) on his hurdles debut at Wetherby (2m; good to soft) most recently. Did fare best of the rest though, and therefore he must be respected on that form.
Makes hurdles/stable debut after leaving Sir Michael Stoute. Highest rated horse in the line-up on the flat. Needs to transfer that ability to hurdles, but major chance if able to do so.
Ran better than the finishing positions would suggest when well-beaten into third on hurdles bow at Wetherby (2m; good to soft). Yard form is a concern, but he would have place claims again if running to a similar level.
Was slammed by Robeam (13/8f) on his hurdles debut at Sedgefield (2m1f; soft) last month, but that rival is potentially smart. This looks slightly easier, and he has to be there or thereabouts.
Six-race maiden on the flat who has failed to beat a single rival in handicaps the last twice. Best watched on hurdles bow, despite the good record his yard have at this track with jumpers.
Showed a fair level of ability at a low level on the flat. Must be afforded respect coming from this yard who continue among the winners. Related to a 2m hurdle winner.
Placed in maidens on the flat in France. Now makes seasonal/hurdles debut for new yard, who have done well with similar types in the past. Betting may be informative with this one.
