Ex-French 7yo who returned from mammoth absence to make winning British debut in Ascot handicap hurdle (2m5f, soft; first-time hood) last December; not seen since 44l defeat in Grade 2 novice hurdle in January and 5lb out of the weights for this return to chasing but not ruled out.

Useful chaser at best but he's been inconsistent since his last win and was tailed off at Kempton (3m, soft) in his last run in February; mark is falling but he's in the veteran stage now and others are more convincing.

Pulled up in three of his last five starts and not one to rely upon heavily, but he was a creditable third at Chepstow (2m7f, soft) last month when back from a break; capable of having a say if on another going day; cheekpieces go back on (worn once in France in 2018, when well beaten).

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner; 0-4 over fences last season but seemed to be getting his act together when third at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) in April; back from break on slightly lower mark and today's slower ground won't be a problem.

Pretty useful on his day for Olly Murphy and has won both his starts for Alan Hill, a 3m point and 2m7f hunter chase at Taunton when runner-up Not That Fuisse was perhaps unlucky; stamina might be stretched to the limit over this far on softer ground.

Runner-up in Down Royal handicap (2m, yielding to soft) in May, his final start for Denise Foster, but below that form when filling same position in Cartmel beginners' chase (2m1f, good) for new stable later that month; returns from 163-day break here; others have more potential.

Won at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day and bounced back from lesser run at the Festival to win another Grade 3 handicap chase at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) in April in a first-time tongue-tie (retained since); well beaten in the Charlie Hall on reappearance but may have needed the run and he could still have more to offer over staying trips; a possible.

Solid chance on form at about 2m4f on good and soft this winter, but a promising-looking challenge fizzled out in the Plate at Cheltenham last month and he hasn't been persevered with over 3m since his one-paced third at Uttoxeter last March; fitting a tongue-tie could help.
