13:00 Plumpton Mon 2 December 2019
Prevailed at the 12th attempt over fences last time at Newton Abbot where he made all in a four runner field, scoring by 8L. Will need to carry a penalty here for that latest success but he is still one to consider.
Was a winner over hurdles in France in 2018. Made his chase debut at Lingfield (2m) last time but he could only finish fourth of six as he ran too freely. A much better performance can be expected if he settles better.
A three-time winner over hurdles where he was quite smart. He made his chase debut at Warwick (2m) last time, finishing third of five. Should produce more over his fences on this latest start. One to beat.
Remains a maiden after seven starts. He had just one horse behind him in a five runner hurdles contest at Lingfield (2m) last time. Set for chase debut now and will wear cheekpieces for the first time. Others appeal more.
0-6 so far on the track, however, he did come close on a number of occasions over hurdles, including when he was second of five at Lingfield (2m) on his latest attempt. Best to watch on his opening run over fences.
