Trainer Jennie Candlish
May be a bit high in the weights but reasons to think he has more improvement to come, especially if given the chance to tackle further than 2 miles. Jumps well and a strong traveller.
Looked promising in novice hurdles and starts the season on a fair mark as has scope for improvement though given connections could go straight over fences. Acts on soft ground.
Eklat De Rire
Henry De Bromhead
Was travelling strongly in the Brown Advisory at Cheltenham when unseating and given the way the race panned out may well have won. Usually an excellent jumper and stays well so no forlorn hope for the Gold Cup.
Ran really well in the Betfair Trophy considering how keen he was and if not going chasing, one for a big handicap hurdle given cut in the ground.
Had a light season over hurdles but did well and could improve considerably this term. Comments from trainer suggest he may go straight over fences.
Looked pretty useful when winning on his UK debut at Chepstow but then well beaten at Sandown when he jumped left. No surprise if he goes over fences and could do well.
Relishes soft ground and being lightly raced for his age may have more to come so the sort for a long distance handicap when the mud is flying though has the scope to jump fences should connections so wish.
Very lightly raced and ran really well in a competitive Fairyhouse handicap in April. Could improve a lot either kept to hurdles or if going chasing
Hard to quibble with his form for Harry Whittington but the move to Nicholls unlikely to be a negative and given his favoured decent ground has the ability to contest and win the top 2 mile chases.
Lightly raced and improving hurdler who has the scope to do even better as a chaser and could be one for a big handicap at some stage.
Striking A Pose
Jumped really well when winning at Exeter in February, looking just the sort to do well over fences this term if given the chance.
Three Stripe Life
Very impressive on his bumper debut at Navan and then ran really well at the Festival despite being a bit keen. Should make a top class novice hurdler.
Caught the eye with how he travelled in a couple of Kelso novice hurdles before being too keen but still running well in a Wetherby handicap. If he learns to settle could be plenty of improvement in him off what looks a fair mark.
Promise in novice hurdles and his reappearance effort in a Newton Abbot handicap can be ignored given the pedestrian pace on a sharp track. Bred to stay really well and given a suitable test could show a chunk of improvement.
