Respectable performer on the flat, bolting up at Ffos Las two starts ago before good third in Cesarewitch Trial (2m2f). Guaranteed stayer and worth a betting check.
Only run once to date when winning with some authority in 2m Taunton bumper in April. Not seen since but should be suited by trip on hurdles bow.
Sole win came in point-to-point in February but nothing of that level in this sphere. Latest effort when pulled up in 2m novice hurdle at Uttoxeter leaves a lot to be desired.
Kap Rock gelding. Ran well for a long way but seemingly didn't stay the trip when 20L third at Ludlow (2m5f) in March. Back down in trip and yard have been in good form.
Well-beaten in sole point-to-point and didn't offer much when tailed off on debut at Stratford on rules debut last month. More required in this.
Norse Dancer gelding. Made debut over 2m here in March when weakening into sixth. This trip should suit better and could be a dark horse.
Winner of point-to-point and attempted to make all before weakening to finish fourth in 2m bumper here last month. Will need to settle more but respected.
Wasn't the best in the point-to-point sphere and finished never nearer ninth (2m) at Ludlow last month. Will need to find more now.
Looked to be an improving sort with each run until regressing slightly to finish fifth at Exeter (2m1f) in February. Likely to be better this season and comes from powerful yard.
Half-brother to various winners and made fine start to life under rules when second of eight in Worcester bumper (2m) in June. Hails from leading yard and must be respected.
Showing very little over hurdles recently, including well-beaten ninth at Wincanton in late October. Opposable against smart rivals.
Progressing nicely, finishing third on debut at Market Rasen before second over 2m4f at Worcester last time. Contender if improving once again.
Authoritative winner of point-to-point and made respectable start to life over hurdles when 4L second at Wetherby (2m) last month. Not to be discounted.
