Fourth in 1m4f November Handicap before ending 2021 with a pair of hurdle wins; form has levelled off in that sphere since but fitness is no issue ahead of this Flat return and he's run well over C&D before.

J: Thomas Dowson

T: Philip Kirby

Has some eyecatching Flat form, including a fourth in the always-competitive 1m4f November Handicap; the winner of two minor events over hurdles (odds-on for both) before coming up well short in stronger company (hooded last time); has no specific ground requirements but probably placed at best if he's lucky.

J: Thomas Dowson

T: Philip Kirby

Had French Flat win on heavy and his fourth in the November Handicap (1m4f, soft) is one piece of his useful Flat form; ready winner at Wetherby and Musselburgh in his first two juvenile hurdles but this free-going front-runner ended up tailed off behind Porticello at Chepstow (5-1); hood is enlisted in attempt to calm him down.

His last piece of good Flat form was his fourth in the November Handicap (1m4f, soft); the ready winner of two juvenile hurdles since, latest at Musselburgh, and has earned his right to a crack at this loftier level; should be in the thick of it.

Useful on the Flat (RPR 96), finishing fourth in the November Handicap last month (1m4f, soft), and he comfortably made all on his recent hurdle debut at Wetherby (2m, good) despite jumping to the right; switches to a right-handed track today and holds leading claims.

Record of 1-13 on the Flat but he has plenty of useful form in that sphere, including when fourth of 23 in the November handicap at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) 18 days ago; was the best of these on the Flat and he's a major player if he takes to this new discipline.

Won in France (1m2f, heavy) for Jo Hughes a year ago and went close this July in his first two runs for this yard (1m2f and front-running at 1m4f); major backward steps, however, at Ascot and York on last two outings.

Won in France (1m2f, heavy) for Jo Hughes a year ago and went close in first two handicaps for this yard at Ripon (9.8f, good to soft) and Newbury (1m4f, good) in July; well beaten at Ascot (1m4f, good to soft) last time so has a bit to prove returning from another two-month absence.
