Prominent for long way and gave good account when fifth at Taunton (2m3f, good) last month but is effectively on same mark from just out of the weights here and has now been unplaced all seven hurdling starts.

1-15 over hurdles and was tailed off in his last run in that discipline; again well held when third on his chase debut at Exeter (2m3f, heavy) where he probably went off a bit too fast given the conditions; wouldn't be the percentage call.

Dual course winner for Jack Barber last winter (2m4f/2m5f) but chasing didn't really go to plan for new stable this season and she was beaten about 18l when fourth on hurdling return here (2m5f) last month; needs to up her game.

Dual hurdle winner when trained by Laura Young, latterly here (2m5f, good) just under a year ago; makes stable debut after 321-day absence but current mark is workable if he's fully tuned up.
