Steadily improving novice hurdler who has built up a good partnership with John Shinnick this season, winning over 2m at Limerick and 2m3f at Naas, as well as running well in defeat; confirmed a high standard of form when fourth in Irish-dominated Martin Pipe at Cheltenham.

Steadily improving novice hurdler who has built up a good partnership with John Shinnick this season, winning at Naas (2m3f, heavy) most recently; ran well at Fairyhouse (2m4f; just under 2l behind Waterford Whispers) and Limerick (2m7f Grade 2) in December; holds very solid claims on handicap debut and is one for the shortlist.

Landed a 2m maiden hurdle at Limerick in October, but has proved equally if not more efficient upped in trip; second in a Fairyhouse novice hurdle in early December before a staying second in a Grade 2 Limerick novice over 2m7f; dropping back to this trip is unlikely to be an issue and should go close.

Acquired for £100,000 after finishing second to Captain Teague in a 2m4f Knockanard point-to-point for Marie Harding last year; the winner was a fine third in the Champion Bumper last month; has been given plenty of time to mature.

Second reserve; was sold for 100,000GBP after finishing second in a point' last year; disappointing as 6/4 fav' in a Cork bumper on debut for this yard but can improve from that and would have to be seriously considered if getting a run.

Inconsistent form but his C&D second to smart novice hurdler Corbetts Cross certainly reads well; far from sure to reproduce that and tailed off over hurdles when last seen in November.

Found one too good in three consecutive starts in December and January before winning by 10l at Clonmel last month; had gone up 7lb for his three seconds and now raised another 7lb, but his mark is not yet in three-figures and he is a young horse capable of making further progress.
