Won when upped in trip in Sedgefield maiden hurdle (2m4f, good) in November and followed up on handicap debut here (2m3f, good to soft); disappointing at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) subsequently but could rediscover his progressive ways back on better ground today.

Made all when winning a small-field maiden over C&D last month and built on that when following up under more patient tactics on handicap debut at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft); remains open to further improvement and is the one to beat off a 5lb higher mark.

Steady progress over hurdles, dictating steady pace when winning four-runner Sedgefield maiden (2m4f, good; handles soft) 17 days ago; may have more to offer now tackling handicaps but today's opposition is tougher.

Safely held in both bumpers but fared better on his two hurdling starts, more recently when third (albeit beaten about 19l) in first-time hood at Bangor (2m, soft) this month; moves up in trip today and probably has more to offer.

Has shown some ability, finishing second in a point and fifth in a maiden hurdle at Kelso last time; however, plenty of improvement is needed in a first-time hood and Brian Hughes rides stablemate Richmond Lake.

Runner-up in the second of two Irish points (finished ahead of subsequent dual hurdle winner in Ireland); well held in two bumpers for this yard, dropping right out at Bangor last month, but likely to fare much better now hurdling for in-form yard.

Irish point second (second start) last December; changed hands for £20,000 shortly after; 10-1, fourth of eight on rules debut under Theo Gillard in a Catterick bumper (heavy) in February; should come on for that experience but may have to wait for other days.
