AW scorer on Flat for Harry Dunlop; behind Lifetime Legend when fifth on his Wetherby hurdle debut (2m, soft) over Christmas; achieved a bit more when third at Warwick (2m, good to soft) since but another of today's rivals, Hasty Parisian, was 6l ahead in second; early days but improvement will be needed.

Dual Flat winner for David Menuisier; both hurdle starts to date at Class 2 level, offering enough to suggest he has a race like this in him, finishing just under 5l ahead of the reopposing Lifetime Legend at Huntingdon latterly; ran well on sole Flat start in the cheekpieces which are now applied for the first time over hurdles; should go well.
