Won on the Flat in Ireland in 2020 but is 0-9 over hurdles; just a respectable fourth at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good to soft) last month and needs to find something extra here.

Form & Verdict
Very useful on the Flat in his prime and has made the frame in all three handicap hurdles, most notably when second to a bang-in-form mare at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) last month; didn't have race run to suit when upped to 2m4f four weeks ago and could still have untapped potential over this trip.

Form & Verdict
Second in a juvenile hurdle last autumn but well beaten when upped to 2m4f for stable/handicap debut in June and, following a wind op, never looked dangerous when well-held fifth in 2m maiden last month; still unexposed in this sphere but clearly needs to up her game; hood removed after one use.

Form & Verdict
Dug deep to win off 1lb lower at Southwell (3m, good) in May and was placed over C&D on all three previous visits to Sedgefield but needs to shrug off last month's heavy AW defeat, and at least a couple of the others appeal more here; cheekpieces the headgear of choice today.
