J: Richie McLernon

Made the frame in all three Irish points in 2022 and was very respectable fifth of 12 in what has turned out to be a good course bumper on rules debut last March; makes hurdling debut after ten-month absence, though, and others have more pressing claims.

Won in December at the fourth attempt in maiden points; 28-1 for rules debut in 12-runner novice hurdle at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) 18 days ago and he won that as well, in clearcut style after making all and fending off two challengers; needs to improve to defy the weight concession to all of today's rivals but that was an admirable start to his career.

Point winner who scored at 28-1 on his rules debut at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) in January and he built on that when a close third of five in a Sandown novice (2m, soft) last month; needs to find more in this competitive race but he has plenty of stamina in his pedigree and this step back up in trip looks a good move; dangerous.

Won his bumper here; now 0-6 over hurdles but he's proving consistent and seems to be able to show his form on all ground; a repeat of his latest third in a Plumpton handicap should see him difficult to beat here.
