Back to the same mark as when beating River Bray narrowly in four-runner race at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) in January; looks exposed now but should be thereabouts if fit after a break.

Historically well handicapped and the first-time visor prompted a return to form when second at Ayr (2m, good to soft); whether he'll be as good as again remains to be seen and this is tougher.

Made quite encouraging seasonal/stable debut over 2m4f here in December; two lesser efforts have followed (2m6f/2m1f; cheekpieces refitted last time) but he's sure to appreciate today's ease in grade; a possible if first-time visor has positive effect.

Form & Verdict

French Flat winner who won his first two races over hurdles; probably ran at least as well as could have been expected when second of four in Listed event at Kempton (2m, good; also handles soft) last month; could be unexposed as he moves into handicaps and high on the list.

Two Taunton novice wins in the spring of 2021 but went off the boil in a big way last year and left Paul Nicholls; led for a long way when third at Ffos Las on stable debut, after a break, and chances may hinge on how he reacts to blinkers (cheekpieces no seeming help on five occasions).

Clear signs of getting his career back on track when second of nine at Huntingdon (2m, good) last month, and the thriving winner boosted the form by following up; won only start here (C&D, good to soft); well handicapped on old form and looks a leading contender.

Mainly disappointing over hurdles and fences since fourth at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival but his mark has tumbled and he has had wind surgery since his last run; 2-2 at Exeter, including over C&D, and equally effective on good and soft ground; interesting contender after a break.

On a competitive mark on his 2021-22 form; off since and, while he returns with his stable in good form, it's a very hefty absence for this 10yo to try to defy.

Form & Verdict

Won his first three races over hurdles (2m/2m4f, good/soft), but tailed off on both subsequent outings last season, jumping right in Grade 2 novices at Chepstow and Cheltenham; reverting to a right-handed track should help and there may yet be better to come on this handicap debut; not dismissed lightly after a year off.

Made it second-time lucky over fences when scoring over C&D (good to soft) in June but he's a headstrong sort who flopped back over hurdles here last time; has bit to prove again after that and this is a step back up in grade.

Won a six-runner handicap at Wincanton (2m4f, good) last March and is now 2lb lower; however, he was down the field on his final run last season (2m5f, good) and tailed off on his reappearance at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) in December; this 10yo needs to get back on track.
