Musselburgh winner on stable/hurdle debut but didn't really build on that in two subsequent novices; handicap debut and interesting to see how he fares in the betting against stablemate Valentino Dancer.

Useful Flat-racer; created pretty good impression on stable/hurdle debut at Musselburgh (1m7f, good) in February but has been held in two subsequent novice hurdles (both on good to soft) and will need to up his game to win a race this competitive on his handicap hurdle debut; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict
Useful 130-rated chaser (has won around here) was having first run on the Flat for over three years when respectable sixth to Dha Leath over 1m2f at Roscommon last month; you'd imagine several of these will have too much toe for him.

Formerly a useful hurdler/chaser in Ireland but has plummeted down the weights and been very disappointing for new stable this year; sports refitted tongue-tie and cheekpieces today; needs to stop the rot.

Ex-Richard Hannon; won 1m4f AW handicap in taking fashion on seasonal/stable debut in April and followed up over hurdles at Cork; didn't quite get home over 1m5f when fourth of 14 at Leopardstown in early June but has had a break and likely more to come from him; second reserve.
