Solid form in bumpers and winning start over hurdles at Hexham in May, beating a consistent rival with something in hand; not seen since but should progress; bred to stay this longer trip; all runs on good to soft or softer.

Won last year on first two hurdle starts including at this track (2m5f, good); no joy in last three runs but he looked dangerous when falling two out at Wetherby in March and his latest fifth at Ayr (3m, soft) was a respectable effort; now drops back in trip and he's not ruled out back at the scene of his last win.

Won last year on first two hurdle starts (2m/2m5f, good to soft/good) and fair fourth on handicap debut at Ascot (2m3f, soft) in November; bang there when falling two out at Wetherby (2m5f, soft) last month; his trainer excels with staying types and this one could be a leading player now up in trip.

Readily won modest contests in the first half of the season on his first two hurdle starts (2m/2m5f, good to soft/good); fair fourth on handicap debut at Ascot (2m3f, soft) last November when last seen and, while he needs to build on that today, he remains unexposed and is in good hands to progress.

Ex-Irish, previously with Margaret Mullins; is yet to win (0-15) and fortunes have been mixed since joining this trainer; his September second to Idem (2m5f novices' hurdle) was franked at Kelso on Wednesday and he's reasonably handicapped, but he's yet to demonstrate an aptitude for fences.

Two chase wins this summer and also won a Bangor novice hurdle easily; winning run came to an end back chasing at that track this month but obvious claims back in this company.

Made the frame in all four Irish points in the spring; came from another parish to finish fourth on last month's British/hurdle debut at Cartmel (2m1f); still beaten 33l and, while he's likely to do better at this trip, needs a great deal of improvement.

Pulled up in a maiden point in November 2021; well backed for that race so clearly thought to have ability but can only be watched for now.
