First attempt at 3m (and also in this combination of aids) when narrowly beaten at Ludlow a month ago (two of today's rivals behind); 2lb rise no hardship and decent claims but does need to prove himself on more testing ground.

Won two bumpers here but all best efforts over hurdles have come at Musselburgh, including under Bruce Lynn last time when a close fourth over a trip shorter than ideal (1m7f, good); chance if matching that, but track is the obvious concern.

Won over 11.5f on Flat last summer for John Ryan but has shown little in the way of promise over hurdles of late, for new yard on last two outings; falling in the weights but still needs a step forward.

Ex-Irish 5yo who made pleasing start to life with Keith Dalgleish, well backed and finishing second in 3m handicap at Musselburgh 13 days ago; travelled strongly there and still appeals as being well handicapped; best efforts have come on good though.

Not at best in three runs for this yard, but mark has come down and he shaped as though just stretched by 2m6f at Kelso on Sunday; that offers some hope and tongue tie goes on.
