Showed a good attitude to score on soft ground at Hexham and the third has since won a handicap (RPR 120); might well be up to defying a penalty.

2m winner at Hexham (soft) and here (good; race fell apart) either side of a summer break, but well below that level in handicaps since (ran lazily latest); 2m4f asks a new question; cheekpieces added.

Took advantage of the 7lb he was receiving from Tintintin when finally wearing down that front-runner at Hexham in April (soft) and left with straightforward task at Huntingdon in October; in nowhere near the same form on handicap debut at Warwick since; now has something to prove.

Went close on his Flat debut (September 2022) but regressed afterwards and left Brian Meehan for 9,500gns this July; remains to be seen whether hurdling will float his boat.

Finished sixth of eight at Kempton (2m, good to soft; 14-1) on her debut in February but she travelled smoothly for a long way and was only beaten around 7l in the end; should benefit from that experience and she's not ruled out.
