Won first 3 starts for this yard over hurdles, including Grade 1 in Ireland. Strong at the finish when making a winning return/chase debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) and leading claims with more to come.
Smart novice hurdler in 2018/19 who left a tame reappearance display over fences in his wake to land Warwick maiden (2m) 3 weeks ago. Runner-up has scored since and not dismissed lightly.
Fairly useful hurdler who belatedly opened chase account from the front at Sedgefield (16.3f) 2 weeks ago, his jumping looking assured. More on his plate in this stronger contest, however.
Useful on Flat and similar form over hurdles on the back of his Newbury novice success last winter, hitting the frame in valuable handicaps at around 2m. Market may prove a useful guide now chasing.
Fusil Raffles (4/5), Getaway Trump (11/4), Sir Valentine (11/2), Return Ticket (10/1)
A smart hurdler, FUSIL RAFFLES took well to chasing at the first attempt when scoring at Uttoxeter in September and he's fancied to continue the good work with success in this stronger affair under a penalty. Getaway Trump put it together to get off the mark himself at Warwick recently and may well provide the chief threat.
