Easy to back on debut at Haydock (2m, soft) but showed plenty of promise in finishing a close second of nine; should improve for the run and looks a major contender.

Dual novice winner on soft ground last season; tapped for toe at crucial stage before keeping on well for second behind Horn Cape on last month's handicap debut at Newcastle (2m1f, heavy); 6lb better off with that rival today and might be seen to better effect on this stiffer track.

Found the odds-on favourite Bleu D'enfer too strong in maiden company at Ayr (2m3f, heavy; beaten 4.75l) four weeks ago; switches to handicapping at a realistic level, and should have more to offer as he continues to gather experience; stablemate of Cave Hill.

Tailed off on debut in bumper at Down Royal last May but sent off at 7-1 so presumably better was expected; also engaged in 5.10 at Navan on Saturday.

Stable companion of Adveram; Black Sam Bellamy gelding whose dam was a dam 3m hurdle winner; staying pedigree so unlikely to be sharp enough to make a serious impact on debut.

T: Sandy Thomson

Heavy-ground bumper winner; hasn't yet managed to build on that over hurdles, including when coming in for some support on his return from wind surgery at Ayr (3m, soft; handicap debut) last month; drops 2lb and has a bit to prove but a competitive effort would not surprise.

Heavy-ground bumper winner; shade disappointing when upped to 2m6f to Kelso last month but began hurdling career with two very encouraging runs and could still have significant untapped potential over staying trips.
