Half-brother to smart Thyme White; won on good to soft here first time out before finishing second in a Listed race at Cheltenham (soft); not so good at Newbury last time but his best efforts set the standard; Olive Nicholls, taking over from Harry Cobden, has won on two of her last three rides.

Won two Wincanton bumpers last season and made winning hurdle debut there (1m7f, good to soft) in November; flopped badly at Cheltenham the following month and not seen again since but still enters calculations.

2-4 in bumpers (with a good second here on soft) and made a successful start to hurdling career in a nine-runner novice at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) five weeks ago, always prominent and scoring comfortably at 10-11 despite some wandering; looks set for further improvement with that experience under his belt, so one to consider.

Won by 10l on hurdle debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in October and was runner-up on next three appearances (2m-2m3f; once here); arguably looked most likely winner before last-flight fall at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) last month and has another big role to play here.

Won by 10l winner on hurdle debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in October and he's finished runner-up in all three starts since including a close call at Taunton (2m3f, good) last time; seems versatile ground-wise and he should give it another good shot at this new trip.
