In good form since the autumn, notably when winning at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) in December; probably doesn't have much margin for error off current handicap mark but is versatile regarding ground and ought to give another good account.

Form & Verdict
Has form figures of 2233 in handicap hurdles and an extended 2m3f was perhaps on the sharp side for her at Ayr 18 days ago; did wander about up the final straight at Wetherby the time before but it was very windy; plenty of stamina in her pedigree now up to 3m.

About 3l behind the first two (including runner-up Moon King) when third of five at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) last time but that was still a good run and she won at Doncaster (3m, good) the time before; steadily progressive and could be in the mix.

Won a big-field handicap at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) in May and showed afterwards that he could cope with his new mark; perhaps not seen to best effect off a modest gallop over 2m4f at Wetherby last time and he has potential for 3m (stays 2m6f).

Without a win since November 2018 but hasn't been with Nick Alexander long and stayed on from unpromising position to take second at Kelso (2m6f, soft; no headgear) three weeks ago; has often worn cheekpieces; could have a say if first-time visor gives him a boost.

Ex-French 5yo; initially very disappointing in Britain but exploited some significant help from the handicapper when coming from off the pace to beat Kinerton Hill at Wetherby (2m3f, heavy) three weeks ago; interesting to see whether he can build on that performance on today's faster ground.
