14:00 Plumpton Mon 2 December 2019
Scored over hurdles at the first attempt at Fontwell (2m3f) in a 12 runner contest. He went close to following up on his latest start when he was second of eight at Ascot (1m7½f). Will need to carry a penalty but is a big player.
Remains a maiden after three bumper appearances, however, he has not been far away in each of those starts, including last time at Uttoxeter (2m) when he was second of nine, beaten by a head. One to consider.
Was a long way behind when he was 10th of 16 runners on his debut at Chepstow (2m3½f) after going off at 100/1. Will need to take a huge step forward to be in the mix at the finish on this latest attempt.
Scored on the AW on the Flat at Lingfield (2m) two starts back by a neck but was 0-13 on turf. Finished fifth of 14 over that same C&D last time. Can't discount here on his opening start over hurdles.
Has featured just once over hurdles under Rules and that was when he finished 17th of 18 at Thurles (2m) back in October 2017. Set for his first run for his new yard here. Best to watch on his return to action under Rules.
Recorded back-to-back wins on the Flat on the AW earlier this year, with his latest success coming at Wolverhampton (1m6f) in a nine runner field. where he justified going off as the 6/4 favourite. Interesting newcomer to hurdles.
Remains a maiden after four starts. His latest effort came over hurdles at Sandown (2m) where he was fifth of 11 on his first run for his new yard. Is still open to improvement. One to consider here.
Was a long way off the winner when she was seventh of 12 at Fontwell (1m5½f) back in October in a bumper. Set for her first appearance over hurdles. Needs to improve on her opening showing.
Has failed to shine in three racecourse appearances. Her latest outing came over hurdles at Exeter (2m2½f) where she was 13th of 16, 61L off the winner. Hard to make a case for on what she has shown so far.
