Form & Verdict
Second in two Irish points in the autumn and has made the frame on all three hurdling starts this year (2m3f-2m5f); ought to give another good account here but a couple of the others may have more potential; sports first-time cheekpieces.

Ex-Irish pointer; well beaten in Warwick bumper on last month's stable debut but has fared considerably better in two subsequent hurdles, more recently when second at Fontwell (2m3f, good); ought to play a significant role here too.

Form & Verdict
Showed ability in a bumper and two points in Ireland last spring, and also when staying-on sixth of 17 in soft-ground Warwick bumper for new stable in November; had wind surgery during subsequent five-month break; needs to improve to make winning hurdle debut here but that's possible; tongue-tie fitted.

Well beaten on both hurdling starts during the winter but evidently well suited by switch to good ground when clear second at Warwick (2m5f, good) in March; that form already makes him a big player here, and he's open to further improvement.

Wind surgery ahead of hurdling debut over C&D in which he was a well-beaten ninth; no better at Plumpton latest; both those runs were on soft ground and perhaps the prospect of a slightly sounder surface is a cause for hope.
