Runner up on all three Bumper runs last season showing a similar level of ability on each occasion on good to soft/soft. Likely to need further in time and stiff task on hurdling debut.
Green on only start when midfield in Bumper on this card last year. Presumably had issues as not seen since and others may have too much knowhow at this stage.
Off the mark at third attempt in bumpers when trained in Ireland when scoring on soft ground at Navan. Subsequently sold for £200,000 and encouraging start over hurdles for these connections when runner up in 2m4f Grade 2 at Chepstow last month.
Point-to-point winner and easily off the mark in Plumpton Bumper in March (good to soft). Nice prospect for hurdling but this looks a tough assignment st make debut in.
Pair of Bumper wins here last season before finishing down the field at Cheltenham. Raced keenly from the front when beaten a neck on hurdling debut at Chepstow recently but third has franked the form and return to this venue will suit.
Dam won over 3m over fences and is related to plenty of winners who all stayed well so likely to find this too sharp on racecourse debut.
Placed in pair of good ground bumpers in the spring. Wind operation since and now goes hurdling but yard have more obvious candidate in Flic Ou Voyou.
50/1 when third on second start in bumpers last spring but showed little on recent hurdling debut and hard to make a case for in this stronger contest.
