Not at his best when beaten a distance last time but had previously run well behind Arkle favourite Edwardstone in another Grade 2 novice (Kempton); that's strong form and entitles him to serious consideration off this mark; has been running over 2m but this trip shouldn't bother him at all.

No match for Edwardstone in Grade 2 novice at Kempton (2m, soft) latest but the winner is exciting and this fellow showed strong form in finishing best of the rest; has won on good to soft, unraced on good; respected.

Made it 5-10 under rules when comfortably landing Grade 2 at Haydock (2m4f, soft) last month, when suited by the step back up in trip; won on good ground over hurdles and he's a strong candidate under his 5lb penalty.

Admirably consistent performer who endured a rare blip at Sandown last time but that was in a Grade 1, a level at which he was runner-up last year at Aintree (2m4f); the highest rated of these and returning to this longer trip is probably a good thing; won't be far away.

Form & Verdict
Ex-French youngster who was impressive in Newbury handicap (2m) on second run for Paul Nicholls; mixed results since but shaped better than the bare form suggests in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham most recently; this return to 2m4f is worth exploring, judged on pedigree; may rate higher yet.

Ex-French youngster who is 1-4 in Britain, the win gained in impressive fashion at Newbury in November (last handicap start); could be dangerous if he shows that sort of spark back in a handicap scenario.

Needs to bounce back from last month's very disappointing Grade 1 run but impressed when readily winning Newbury handicap (2m, good to soft) by over 6l in November, his second British start, and remains very much of interest; won over hurdles on heavy ground when trained in France.

Mid-division in the Plate last March (2m4f); in better form since and, if anything, he added to his reputation when travelling strongly for a long way behind top novices at Kempton on Boxing Day (3m, soft); subsequent win (with cheekpieces added) was over 2m4f, though, and stamina for this far is unproven; headgear retained.

Plenty of solid chase form (including on good ground) and off the mark over fences at the seventh attempt at Haydock (2m5f, heavy) in December; creditable third behind exciting prospects in 3m Grade 1 at Kempton on Boxing Day and can go well now back down in grade; cheekpieces added.
