Formerly with trainer Nicky Henderson. Five of six beaten over 120L on stable debut at Fairyhouse over a similar trip last month. Profile suggests he is worth taking on again in first-time cheekpieces.
Appeared one pace finishing third of four runners at this track last month over 1m2f on his first start for current connections since leaving the David Lanigan yard. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.
108-rated handicapper over hurdles, the gelding has been struggling in a couple of initial starts at this track since last month over 7f and 1m4f. Unlikely to make a significant impact with another step up in trip.
Won for the second time at this venue when landing a 9K handicap over C&D last month off a 5lb lower mark finishing 3L ahead of the 10 runner field. Entitled to have designs on prize money once again.
117-rated handicap hurdler, last seen tailing off in a Galway mares' hurdle in September. Winner over a similar trip on the Flat at Tramore in August in a 7K maiden. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Struggling over hurdles around the turn of the year. Poor form in a series of dismal efforts since May including heavy defeats at Limerick and Gowran Park in the autumn. Others hold stronger claims.
Daughter of Camacho out of a Alhaarth mare. Closely related to Holiday Magic, eight time winner on the Flat between 7f/1m and Coolnafree winner over 7f and placed in Listed company at 7f. Best watched on debut.
