Out of a half-sister to very smart Irish jumper Death Duty; joined Olly Murphy after winning an Irish point (3m, soft/heavy) by 5l last November; only fifth of seven when favourite for Uttoxeter bumper in March but he now goes hurdling over this longer trip and it wouldn't be a surprise if he left that latest form behind; interesting contender.

Pulled up when upped in trip on handicap hurdle debut at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) in December; however, he showed signs of promise previously over hurdles and this very lightly raced 3m point winner (soft to heavy) is open to improvement now tackling fences; wears first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces.

Runner-up in her second Irish point in April and changed hands for £35,000 the following month; half-sister to a hurdle winner and she needs a close look on her rules debut.

Form & Verdict

Joined Dan Skelton after a promising third in Irish point in March; raced too freely in his sole bumper in July and was a remote third of six when switched to hurdling at Warwick (2m5f, good) last week; still unexposed and is out of a 2m4f hurdle winner but he needs improvement.

Showed some promise in two Kelso bumpers (2m, good/good soft) in the spring, including when a rallying third of ten on his penultimate run; closely related to a 2m6f jumps winner and he looks a possible improver upped in trip on his hurdling debut.
