Well related; won two small-field bumpers here (soft/heavy) in December; much better form when third of ten in a maiden hurdle at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) five weeks ago and that sets a good standard.

Half-brother to smart chaser Potterman; made low-key bumper debut in November but won two small-field Bangor bumpers last month (soft/heavy); that form isn't anything to get too excited about but he ought to have a future over jumps.

Often flattered to deceive on the Flat and left Hugo Palmer a 15-race maiden; heavy ground was not ideal on hurdle debut at Stratford but he was always out the back and didn't jump well.

Out of a half-sister to smart jumper Tarxien; clear second to a subsequent dual hurdle winner on Irish point debut in December (soft ground) and joined up-and-coming stable for £20,000 the following month; fitted with tongue-tie for rules debut; interesting to see how he fares.
