Form & Verdict

Unplaced in five bumpers but ended his time in Ireland with a fair third on his hurdle debut and built on that when second of 17 in a 2m Warwick novice (soft) on his return for a new yard three weeks ago; ought to be thereabouts.

Maiden in Ireland who made a cracking start for his new connections, following his novice win at Wetherby (2m, soft) with a narrow loss in handicap at Ascot (1m7f, good to soft); 2m4f seems to explain a lesser show on latest start and, although he needs to resume improvement, his stable has been in red-hot form; one to note.

Ex-Irish maiden who has made a cracking start for his new connections, following his novice success (2m, soft) with a narrow failure in a competitive Class 4 handicap at Ascot (1m7f, good to soft; pulled clear of the third); needs another jolt of improvement off 7lb higher but that's feasible over this longer trip.

Second in both Irish points last season and made pretty good start to rules career when filling same position in Wetherby novice hurdle (2m, soft) in November; did not get home and was pulled up over 2m4f at Hexham (heavy) last month but it would be folly to write him off after that.

Runner-up on the first of two outings in bumpers; has shown fairly useful form to win twice on AW Flat since (for Keith Dalgleish); down the field in two turf handicaps for new yard this autumn but he wasn't beaten that far; hurdle debut.

Not up to a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree in the spring but showed plenty of promise when first and second in bumpers at Huntingdon (good to soft/good) prior to that; has left Lucy Wadham ahead of this hurdle debut and reappearance; should be up to making his presence felt in novice hurdles.

Two good efforts in Huntingdon bumpers (good to soft and good) for Lucy Wadham, winning on debut and a close second next time to one who has made a good transition to hurdles since; highly tried on final start in that field; fell early on hurdle debut for new yard last month; should go well if getting round safely.
