J: Sean Quinlan

T: Nicky Richards

Heavy-ground bumper winner; made a meal of justifying short odds in a Hexham maiden 16 days ago (2m4f, heavy) and only one other rival completed; perhaps better judged on his superior effort here the time before and he brings potential into handicaps, especially at this trip.

Won his bumper here on heavy ground; not at his best in a 2m4f maiden here but proved that run to be all wrong when narrowly beaten by his talented market rival over 2m3f at Carlisle (heavy), finishing miles clear of the remainder; has a bright future and should be winning this.

Second of five at Hexham (2m, heavy) last March on final bumper start and went close on hurdle debut there (2m, heavy) last month, following an absence; improvement is needed but she's closely related to her yard's Grand National winner One For Arthur and she could relish this step up in trip.

Closely related to stable's Grand National winner One For Arthur and useful Irish jumper Forza Milan; displayed promise in all three bumpers last season, most recently when second of five here (heavy) a year ago (winner now a fair hurdler), and ought to have a future over jumps.

There's potential in his pedigree and a market check is advised now up in trip on hurdle debut, but he was tailed off in his two bumpers in the spring (2m, heavy/soft) and needs to be an entirely different proposition.
