Fair ninth in Supreme Novices' here (2m, soft) in March and second in Grade 1 Top Novices' Hurdle at Aintree (2m, good to soft) next time; back to form when second in Grade 2 Ascot Hurdle (2m3f, good) in November and this lightly raced 7yo is a possible improver, but it's needed in this field.

Solid record in bumpers, winning sole French start then making the frame twice for new yard, fourth at Cheltenham (Listed) on New Year's Day when last seen; likely player provided he returns in similar form.

Made the frame in a Listed bumper in early 2022 and on all four hurdling starts for Mel Rowley last season, most notably when third behind two useful rivals at Warwick (2m3f, good) in February; ought to be a tough nut to crack on today's stable debut.

Quite a useful bumper performer (winner over 1m4f in France in August 2021) who has shown decent form over hurdles, his best effort being last time when third on good ground at Warwick on his first try at 2m3f; sound chance on that form.

From a good jumps family; absent since his debut success in Doncaster bumper (good to soft) eight months ago; the form hasn't worked out particularly well but he's open to progress this term; interesting contender.

Six-race maiden who has only bits of encouraging form; however, this combination of drop back in trip and first-time headgear may prompt improvement; represents notable connections and can't be written off.
