Lots of experience over hurdles and fences in France where won four times. Scored at only the second time of asking here in Britain when landing 2m5f event at Exeter last week and should go well again despite having to concede his penalty.
Showed a little promise in two French bumpers for previous handler and makes debut here for new yard going through a quiet spell at present. May do better now facing hurdles and worth a market check.
Won Irish maiden point at fifth time of asking prior to Rules debut at Worcester recently where faded fast from home turn and was tailed off before 2 out. Others make more appeal.
Won Warwick bumper in December last year and not disgraced when seventh at Newbury in March. Well backed on hurdles bow at Wetherby recently where led until 2 out then stopped quickly and pulled up. May have choked as tongue-tie now applied.
Failed to score in five Irish points last season and beaten a long way on Rules bow at Fontwell last moth. Better when fourth back there recently and appears to be going the right way so may have place claims.
£15,000 purchase after winning Irish maiden point in March. Makes Rules bow for good yard and interesting to see if there is any market support for this gelded son of Curtain Time. Yard in fair form.
Runner-up in two of five points and sold for £29,000 in May to join current yard going through a very quiet spell. Doesn't jump out as an obvious debut winner.
Martaline filly who made an inauspicious start to her career when pulled up in Fontwell bumper in September having lost touch from halway. Has a great deal on her plate.
