Improved again when gaining third hurdles win from 4 starts in narrow fashion on handicap debut at Cork in August. That form not far off the best on offer, and he may have more to offer.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m 3f to 2m 5f on good to firm and good ground. A winner at 8-1 in a hurdle race at Cork over 2m 4f (good) on his latest outing in August, beating Coolmill by 1/2l.

EL BANDIT won the Grade 2 Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow a couple of weeks ago in impressive fashion and that appears to be rock solid form in the context of this race. The second had finished third in the Fred Winter back in March and the third was a highly-rated Flat recruit. Colin's Sister won well at the same venue the day before and could prove to be the main danger with her sex allowance. Templeross has looked to be above-average so far in his short career and is another to note, while neither Black Warrior and Pickamix cannot be completely discounted.

There are several here who like to force the pace, namely Marracudja, Aristo Du Plessis, Baron Alco and Pinkie Brown, so it could be best focusing on the closers. Presenting Arms ran a blinder in Listed company at Market Rasen and should give another good account, but the two to focus on might well be Irish raiders Ridestan and NEVERUSHACON. There was just a nose splitting the pair in Grade 3 company at Gowran earlier this month, with the former emerging on top, but Jessica Harrington's charge is 3lb better off at these weights and is fancied to reverse placings. Harrington, who saddled the winner of this race 12 months ago, also has a back-up plan in Gambling Girl.

Won at Musselburgh in January 2015 (2m) and plenty of in-frame efforts last term for John Ferguson put him in with a shout. Disappointing stable debut last month, but this trip more suitable nowadays.

He has won three hurdle races at 2m on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. Well beaten at 4-1 behind Wisty when fourth of 7 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Kelso over 2m (good) last month.

Washed Ashore stayed on well to land a 2m novices' hurdle at Worcester last time out and promises to be suited by this longer trip now sent handicapping. Of more interest, however, is BALLINURE, who overcame some trouble in running when scoring over the extended 2m5f at Newton Abbot last time and may be capable of defying a 5lb rise. Midnight Shot appears a danger to all after being ridden aggressively to victory at Fontwell, while Arctic Gold is worth a market check now returning from a break for an in-form stable.

A trio of Irish raiders look the ones to focus on here. 2014 Triumph Hurdle hero TIGER ROLL won the Munster National by seven lengths earlier in the month and gets the vote on the back of that impressive performance. He jumped well at Limerick and has amassed plenty of chasing experience in novice terms. Full Cry promises to be suited by this stiffer test and, along with taking 3m Clonmel winner Heron Heights, gives Henry De Bromhead a strong hand.
