Easily justified favouritism in Irish point in March and looks an exciting prospect judged on Nicky Henderson's glowing comments in Stable Tour; trainer's excellent record in this race cements the appeal.

Acts on soft; had to work harder than previously in Grade 2 at Doncaster (2m, good) most recently but the form has been franked by the second and third since and he remains unbeaten; one of his earlier Newbury wins came in a race that has thrown up several Grade 1 winners, including two from this yard, in the last decade; has been racing in steadily run affairs and the likely stronger gallop in this scenario may enable him to achieve a much higher rating; shortlisted.

Easy debut success at Taunton (good to soft) is the best piece of bumper form in this field; pulled too hard in Aintree Grade 2 when last seen but holds major claims provided he settles better switched to hurdles.

Well beaten on heavy in December when last seen, having begun hurdling career with two promising 2m runs on good/good to soft; due to make his handicap debut over 2m5f early last month but withdrawn when the ground was soft; that's a concern but market may guide for this handicap newcomer.
