T: David Pipe

Irish point second who was placed in a heavy ground bumper on debut and also in a Kempton novices' hurdle (2m5f, soft) in February; pulled up on handicap debut at Taunton later that month but player if a subsequent wind operation has a positive effect; also has first-time cheekpieces added to the tongue-strap he's worn recently.

Early promise in Irish point and bumper; low-key start to hurdle career but he fared better when runner-up to a hotpot at Kempton (2m5f, soft) recently and should do better again on switch to this level over new trip.

Runner-up on Irish point debut last spring and made quite promising start to rules career when keeping-on third in Newton Abbot bumper (heavy) in October but dropped out of contention very quickly on first two hurdling starts and can only be watched here.

Placed in Irish point and Newton Abbot bumper; form dipped sharply at Uttoxeter (2m4f) on the switch to hurdles but subsequent wind surgery, allied with tongue-tie, may have positive effect; still unexposed.

Runner-up in March his only Irish point (3m, soft to heavy); 13-2, staying-on third of nine in bumper at Newton Abbot (2m1f, heavy) five weeks ago; dam was a smart hurdler/chaser and he's one to keep an eye on.
