Narrow winner of an Irish point (3m, yielding) in April, beating Wet The Shamrock who was only sixth of ten at Worcester on Thursday; probably best watched.

Somewhat disappointing when upped to 2m7f at Fakenham last month but his second on handicap debut at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) in January was a good performance, and he's probably worth persisting with over this trip.

Pulled up/tailed off on his three hurdle starts but now goes handicapping off a lowly mark and he won an Irish maiden point last April, after which he was bought for £58,000; he's one to keep a close eye on in the betting.

Very respectable fourth of 12 on handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft) in February but ran in snatches when below that form over same C&D last month; others look safer here.

Unplaced all four hurdling starts but made pretty good start to handicap career when fourth of 12 over C&D (soft) three weeks ago and enters calculations.

Like a few in here, he's performed to a modest standard in novice events but consequently goes handicapping at a realistic level; worth checking in the betting.

Pulled clear of the third when 4l behind a useful winner on good ground at Stratford and the time was okay; likely contender with that experience behind him.

Form dipped sharply at Taunton on Thursday; consistent otherwise and opened his account at Warwick (2m, soft; hurdles debut) the time before; similar type to Jour D'Evasion and may bounce back.

Delivered on promise shown in bumpers when scoring on last month's hurdling debut at Warwick (2m, soft), where he travelled strongly for a long way then asserted on the run-in; should have more to offer; good chance.
