11st 5lb

J: Bradley Harris

T: Anthony Charlton

Won his bumper on heavy before finishing midfield in Aintree's Grade 2 (behind Hasthing); they were modest hurdle races (Plumpton/Fakenham; 2m4f) in which he justified odds-on favouritism but he's a big horse with plenty more to offer.

11st 10lb

J: Bradley Harris

T: Anthony Charlton

Clearcut winner of Stratford bumper (heavy) last April and he had a tough task in Grade 2 at Aintree in final run last season; well-held third at Exeter (2m2f, good) on his hurdling debut but he ran well for a long way and that was a promising effort; this longer trip should be within range on pedigree and he's respected back from another break.

Form & Verdict

Won a confined maiden Irish point (soft) last month; in good hands but he will need immediate improvement on that form if he is to be competitive.

Form & Verdict

Showed significant improvement when leading for much of the way to win readily in a C&D maiden hurdle (soft) last December; hung badly right and was pulled up at Plumpton since; bit to prove after that, especially going left-handed again but he may be able to bounce back.
