Not reached the level he could have done over hurdles and finished last season with 35L defeat at Exeter (2m). Tough ask on chasing and stable debut.
Impressive with two novice hurdle victories last season but offered little on chasing debut when beaten 31L at Sedgefield in May. Stablemate is better fancied.
Talented hurdler who finished last season with highly respectable second in Grade One Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham. Sets the form standard on chasing debut and hard not to fancy.
Took unbeaten record to three since having wind surgery with 15L victory on chase debut at Stratford (2m1f) last month. Still an unknown prospect and looks to be main rival.
Last win came at Ascot in February but well beaten in two starts since, including 24L defeat in 2m Chepstow hurdle in October. Needs a bounce back now.
