Placed a couple of times in maiden hurdles last season and, while disappointing at Wincanton (after a breathing operation) on handicap/seasonal debut, he's probably worth another chance.

Yet to show anything in novice/maiden hurdles and, while bred to do better, the handicapper has taken no chances with his opening mark.
Fair in bumpers and shaped better than first time up over hurdles when third in a novice at Worcester on reappearance. Has gone backwards from that, however.

Improved display when running out an easy winner of a Uttoxeter maiden (23.3f) in July. However, that race fell apart and unable to follow up under a penalty at Worcester latest. Returns to handicaps.

Placed in points and built on hurdling promise to make winning chasing debut here in March. Followed it with a poor run and hasn't been seen since April, but still relatively unexposed for new yard.

Dual point winner who delivered easily his most encouraging effort under Rules when fourth in a novice hurdle at Wincanton last time. Could be thrown in off 96 switched to handicaps/upped in trip.

NELSONS ROCK offered more promise on his qualifying run at Wincanton recently and, given he has won a couple of points, there's every chance an opening mark of 96 underestimates him, so he makes obvious appeal upped markedly in trip with Harry Kimber also taking a useful 7 lb off. Famoso is a danger if he can put a sub-par reappearance behind him, and Just A Whim isn't a forlorn hope.
