Bumper winner who showed much more than on his debut in this sphere when fourth of 10 in a maiden at Newcastle (16.2f) in November, best work finish. One to keep an eye on for handicaps.

Point bumper winner (dead-heated) who has showed some promise in a pair of maiden hurdles at up to 17f this winter. Claims of hitting the frame on back of a wind op.

5-y-o gelding who was placed both starts in points and showed ability when midfield in a 12-runner Catterick bumper (15.7f) last month. May well come forward from that now hurdling. Hood on.
