- Tribute Quality Speaks For Itself Novices' Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 7f 25y, Soft (Good to soft (in places))
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Returned from wind surgery with a decent 11L fourth in a novice hurdle over an extended 2m5f on soft ground here last month. Market support would be notable stepping up in distance on handicap debut.
Point-to-point winner showed ability when fifth in a soft ground maiden hurdle over an extended 2m2f here in March. Disappointing in two starts this campaign however and is upped in trip on first handicap start.
Six race maiden was beaten 23L when third over an extended 2m at Taunton (good) in October on seasonal debut and first start since wind surgery. Stepping up in distance following a heavy defeat on handicap debut over the same C&D subsequently.
Made a winning seasonal and handicap debut when victorious by 1¼L in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f on soft ground last month. Raised 8lb for that victory and is one for the shortlist stepping up in trip.
Bumper winner at Carlisle (2m1f, good-to-soft) in April 2017. Placed over hurdles since and finished a fair 12L fourth in a first time visor (replaced with blinkers here) over this trip at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in October.
Ten race maiden finished a well beaten eighth over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow (soft) last time out. Tongue tie tried for the first time and failed to convince in previous starts in staying hurdles.
Finished runner-up on both starts since winning by 5L over an extended 2m5f on good ground here in October. Beaten 2¼L over C&D on soft ground on his most recent outing and is one for the shortlist despite a 1lb rise in the weights.
