Fairly useful bumper performer, standout effort when 1½ lengths fourth of 7 to Good Risk At All at Cheltenham. Out of depth in Aintree Grade 2 last time and faces a stiff task on hurdle debut.

Smart bumper performer last term, winning a brace of listed events, including over C&D. Badly needed the experience when turned over at short odds on Chepstow hurdle bow and seems sure to do better.

Showed fair form when reaching the frame in 2 bumpers but finished a well-beaten fourth on Lingfield hurdles debut (19.5f) 26 days ago. Should do better in time.

Brother to 4 winners and made the ideal start when landing a 14-runner course bumper. Below that form in Grade 2 event at Aintree next time, but he should still have a decent future over jumps.

Bother to top-class hurdler/chaser Douvan. Cost £540,000 following a point win and quickened clear in good style to making a winning bumper bow over C&D in March. Very exciting prospect.

Shaped well when second in a Worcester bumper for Tom Weston in May and did likewise sent hurdling when third in a 6-runner C&D novice 22 days ago. Will improve.

Looked one for the longer term when well held in a novice hurdle at Hereford earlier in the month. Hood quickly added.
