Form & Verdict
Runner-up on Irish point debut (yielding) and in Worcester bumper (good to soft) in first half of this year; last month's hurdling debut at Aintree (2m4f, good to soft) was also quite promising, for all that he faded out of contention after the final flight and finished only fifth of seven; not out of this if the slower ground suits.

8l second on debut in Irish maiden point (3m, yielding) in January and again showed promise when runner-up in Worcester bumper (2m, good to soft) in May; there's a suspicion others have greater potential but it will be no surprise to see another good run on this first hurdles start.

Form & Verdict
Created very good impression when winning soft-ground course bumper by 18l last December; his two bumper runs either side of that were less good and he was beaten about 33l when fifth on last month's hurdling debut at Hereford (2m3f, good) but he might be seen in a much better light now back on slower ground and with that recent outing under his belt.

Form & Verdict
Drew 6l clear to make winning Irish point debut in February (soft ground), after which he was sold for £70,000; the placed horses haven't done much to advertise that form under rules but he still looks interesting.

Clear second in six-runner Market Rasen bumper on good ground in September but that form probably isn't anything to get too excited about and he was well beaten when switched to hurdling at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month.
