Joint-favourite, won on debut at Ayr (2m, soft) in February; not so good in another bumper at Wetherby (good to soft) in April but that initial promise can't be forgotten; hooded first time; one to note.

Completed a hat-trick over hurdles in a Listed race at Sandown (2m, heavy) and his handicap debut effort at Carlisle (2m3f, heavy; 5-6f) was too bad to be true; no surprise should he bounce back from that.

Half-brother to high-class chaser Any Second Now; pulled up in a point and tailed off in a Chepstow maiden hurdle, but there was also a second of 14 in bumper at Chepstow (good to soft) in between and he's had wind surgery since latest outing; interesting to see his market strength.

Lightly raced 6yo who has posted some solid efforts, including on heavy ground and when fair third on handicap debut at Ascot (2m5f, good to soft) three weeks ago; he's a half-brother to Any Second Now, who has twice been placed in the Grand National, and could improve now up in trip again.

Had wind surgery after his second bumper; better to be placed this autumn at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) and Wetherby (2m, heavy; tongue tied) in his first two starts over hurdles; needs to improve his jumping but there is plenty of encouragement in his pedigree for this longer trip, including as half-brother to the high-class chaser Any Second Now; considered on handicap debut.

Well beaten on both hurdling starts in the spring but his fourth at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) last month was much more encouraging; almost certainly needs to improve again to make a winning handicap debut but that's possible, and this move back up in trip ought to suit.
