The Con Man
J: Brian Hughes

Bought for £70,000 after winning an Irish point in April 2018. Last seen winning a novices' hurdle at Carlisle back in December and that form hasn't turned out badly since. Has to concede weight but shouldn't be far away.
Promising and unbeaten but drops further in distance on return from 12-month absence

Smart in bumpers, an impressive winner at Ayr back in March before a midfield finish in a Grade 2 at Aintree. Making his hurdling debut when a promising third at Ayr and should have learned plenty, but he must settle better this time.
Beaten fav at Ayr on hurdles debut but should do better with the experience under his belt

Smart on the flat for Eve Johnson Houghton, placed at Listed level and rated 108 at his peak on the level. Makes his hurdling debut for a yard who do extremely well with these types and you know he'll have been thoroughly schooled; top claims.
Useful on Flat for Eve Johnson Houghton; major player if taking well to hurdles

Four-race maiden in bumpers, running to a useful standard without managing to score. Should make into a useful hurdler in time and is race-fit, but his rivals do bring better form into the contest and he's likely to fall short this time.
Running well in bumpers this autumn, fifth at Cheltenham latest

Finished third in his sole bumper run in the spring and made a promising swap to hurdling with a second at Carlisle earlier this month. Only beaten by a horse with plenty of experience and that run should have blown away the cobwebs; claims.
Clear second at Carlisle on debut over hurdles; bang there on the figures; respected

35,000 euro purchase, making the perfect start for top connections when scoring cozily at Ffos Las in a bumper back in May. Looks a useful recruit to hurdling and given the yard, plenty of progress can be expected for the switch to this code.
Absent since Ffos Las bumper win in May; "jumps well" according to Nicky Henderson

Didn't show a huge amount in bumpers and made a disappointing start to her hurdling career when down the field at Uttoxeter, never making an impression. Should be outclassed against some useful looking recruits.
