Two of debutant's siblings were Flat winners and one of them, a full-brother, scored in this sphere; from a small yard and should be better for the experience.

Modest form on Flat; different proposition on his hurdling debut at Tipperary; lost a prominent position around three from home but recovered well to beat Doctor Nightingale; failed to avail of his basement rating in a Flat handicap at Sligo; possibly vulnerable under a penalty.

Flat ability respected, best form at 1m; best of three hurdle runs was her latest when a rare stable runner at Hereford (2m, soft) where she was unable to lay a glove on Spiced Rum; however, has a 6lb pull for that 2.5l defeat and this drier surface could see her finish more strongly this time; respected.

Failed to threaten when fourth last September on her two hurdle starts, and she could do with settling better than last time; however, those runs read well in today's context and this talented Flat maiden could have more to offer for her top Irish trainer, for whom she's the sole runner on the card.
