French bumper winner (P Journiac); was also successful at prohibitive odds in a three-runner maiden at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) on debut for Nicky Henderson; retains potential on return to action (from a 247-day absence).
Beaten in excess of 30L when fourth to Bullionaire in a 2m maiden at Uttoxeter (heavy) last month; could prove stronger for that run (certainly needs to) and also be suited by this extra yardage; stablemate of Time For Another.
Sold for £120,000 after making all on debut at Wincanton (bumper); raced once for Rebecca Menzies thereafter (in a Listed bumper); following the well documented collapse of Layezy Racing has since joined Oliver Sherwood for hurdles debut.
Former pointer; pulled-up on rules/stable debut at Hexham (2m, heavy) in October 2017; can only be monitored on return from a 824-day absence.
With Robert Tyner when an easy winner of a 3m maiden at Dromahane (good to yielding) last April; makes his rules/hurdles debut for Jake Coulson.
Wetherby bumper winner (2m, soft); has kept decent company over hurdles since finishing 4½L third to Imperial Flem at Stratford (2m½f, soft) in October; this is a more realistic target; one for the shortlist.
77-rated on the Flat (1-10); has produced similar moderate efforts over hurdles since returning from a 16-month absence; others more likely.
Cost €78,000 as a 3yo but is already onto his third trainer following brief stints with Kim Bailey and Olly Murphy; absent since finishing fourth on hurdles debut at Catterick (2m3½f) in December 2018; stablemate of Click And Collect.
Of limited ability; well beaten at triple-figure odds on both previous starts over hurdles; makes no appeal whatsoever.
Kayf Tara mare; hasn't shown too much promise so far; was always in the rear (100-1) in a big field 'Introductory' Hurdle at Newbury (2m½f, soft) 19 days ago.
Black Sam Bellamy mare; never better than the midfield rank (33-1) on hurdles debut at Hereford (2m, heavy) four weeks ago.
Midnight Legend mare from a point-to-point winning dam (It's Missy Imp); switches to hurdles having unsurprisingly struggled to make her mark in bumpers (Stratford and Warwick); unappealing.
