Modest form three bumper starts he's shown slightly improved form in a couple of recent novice hurdle outings. Showed much more at Sandown last time when back at 2m on heavy ground (first-time tongue-tie); up in trip again, chance but more needed.
Ffos Las bumper winner in testing conditions who has shaped with encouragement in two novice hurdles. Not seen to best effect at Aintree on his most recent start (held up off a slow gallop), a stiffer test will suit him ideally; sets the standard.
Winning chaser in France (2m6f, soft) who looked as though he needed the run on his return to hurdles when making his GB/stable debut at Carlisle. Went without usual headgear (now returns); has a bit to prove but should be suited by conditions.
Half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/smart chaser Mercian Prince; dam 2m hurdle/chase winner. Makes some appeal on pedigree so worth a glance in the market to see if there are any positive vibes on debut.
Off the mark at the third attempt in Irish point-to-points over 3m on decent ground she has shown some ability in two Exeter bumpers, never landed a blow on each occasion. Now makes her hurdles debut after a significant absence.
