12st 2lb

J: Miss Gina Andrews

T: Oliver Greenall

Chase and dual hurdle winner when trained in France, and beat useful rival to make winning British debut in Ludlow hunter chase (3m, soft) six weeks ago; unraced on ground quicker than soft but ought to cope with today's drop back in trip; leading contender.

Form & Verdict
12yo who was pulled up last term on final two runs for Paul Nicholls and was a long way below his best when third of five in a hunter chase at Warwick in January; however, that run gives him something to build on and he's a strong candidate if able to tap back into some of his old ability.

J: Mr Tommie M O’Brien

T: C R Barber

Thorough stayer; pick of four hunter chase efforts this year when second at Newbury two starts ago; heavy fall at Cheltenham 19 days ago (in cheekpieces, retained); every chance if none the worse for that.

Placed off lowly marks under rules when with Christian Williams but has achieved very little in points/hunter chases for current trainer since last spring and looks up against it here.
