Has won four times over hurdles, all at around 2m on going varying from heavy to good; not disgraced on return from a break at Newton Abbot last time; 13lb above his last winning mark but quite interesting on his chase debut.

Still a maiden under rules but a success wouldn't be out of turn, as he was runner-up three times on good ground in the autumn; unsuited by soft surface when last seen; not dismissed, granted a sound surface.

Ex-French 6yo; 0-5 over hurdles but posted sound effort when second off today's mark at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in March and connections are evidently keen to switch him to chasing.

Ex-French 6yo who made quite promising British debut when fourth in C&D maiden (soft) in January; well beaten in Hereford handicap later that month and now has a point to prove, but remains one to be interested in.

Made all in a 1m4f French bumper last March, one of his six starts in France; sent off only 4-1 for British debut in a 1m7f maiden at Wincanton (soft) and didn't quite last home after travelling well; brings plenty of potential into handicaps.

Form & Verdict
Looked a promising novice hurdler in spring 2021 but became disappointing last season; didn't run badly when third of six at Southwell (2m, good) last month and is another 4lb lower for today's chasing but is not bred to fences and still has something to prove.
