Half-brother to useful Irish jumper Rindoon; showed only minor promise when fourth in two Irish points last year and makes rules debut after 298-day absence; probably best watched.

Won Irish point winner in spring 2021 and began rules career with two quite promising runs (bumper/hurdle) for Oliver Sherwood towards end of that year; not seen again until respectable fifth at Newbury (2m, good to soft) for new stable last month but still has potential.

Point winner (3m, good) who was an encouraging fifth on bumper debut at Sandown (2m, soft) in November 2021; absent since soundly beaten over C&D (good to soft) that December but returns with new yard in good form (was with the now-retired Oliver Sherwood); watch betting.

Easily won an Irish point (good ground) in May; well-backed joint-favourite, 5l fifth of ten in Sandown bumper (soft) early last month; seems well regarded and needs a second look on his hurdling debut, having been withdrawn when the ground was soft at Uttoxeter last week.

Built upon his promising hurdle debut when prevailing in good battle at Plumpton (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; now has a penalty to shoulder but can improve again and commands respect.

Fairly encouraging seasonal/hurdle debut when fifth (albeit well held) at Kempton (2m, good) in November but Newbury last month was a backward step; will probably be of greater interest when qualified for handicaps.
