Raced four times on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien, finishing a 6l fifth of nine in a Group 3 (1m2f, good) when last seen in April; changed hands for 62,000gns in July and gelded since; this well-bred sort brings plenty of potential to this hurdle debut and his new yard won this last year.

Ex-Aidan O'Brien; has seen more action for current yard, mostly in a hurdles campaign but he's also made advances on the Flat; 10-1 for a five-runner Group 3 over C&D (good to soft, unraced on firmer than good) on latest start and he gave the odds-on favourite Hamish a scare, just in front of Tashkhan; up 3lb but he's a rising force.

Useful turf form for Aidan O'Brien; better when winning a 1m4f AW handicap in late December, in the midst of a higher-profile hurdles campaign; held up from wide draw in handicap at Royal Ascot and never got into it, probably running creditably; others in this Group 3 field have better form but he's considered for second.

Promise at up to 1m2f during short Flat career for Aidan O'Brien; all but one of his runs for this yard have been over hurdles (won juvenile Grade 2), the exception a 1m4f AW win last December; this is tougher but he may have untapped potential at 1m6f; handles good/soft, unraced on good to firm.

Well-beaten second of four on hurdle debut at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in August and improvement is needed here; however, she raced freely last time and a first-time hood may help her settle better; displayed hints of ability on the Flat and she's in good hands; could have a part to play.
