Multiple hurdle/chase winner at up to 2m3f in France and has therefore been a productive youngster (he's still only a 5yo); quite difficult to assess from a handicapping perspective but market support should be heeded on British debut.

Form & Verdict
Sound start to chase career, winning twice (2m3f/2m5f); below par in hat-trick attempt and, following wind surgery, well beaten on return from break last time; however, gets lumps of weight all round and has a good chance if back on song.

Maiden over hurdles but unbeaten in two chasing starts, the latest here this month; has faced just two rivals in each of the wins but has only edged up the handicap as a result; could still be ahead of the game.

Form & Verdict
Something of a risky proposition, considering he fell the last twice and has a doubt over the forecast ground (yet to encounter good/firmer); however, has possibilities if he takes well to first-time blinkers; last win came off 7lb higher.

Two wins in March last year but has shown little of that form in a pair of attempts this season; tailed off in the first and was struggling when taking a heavy fall latest; more to prove than many.

Form & Verdict
Jumped well and recorded an 8l success at Doncaster (2m4f, good to soft) on chase debut; disappointing favourite (only fourth of five) in higher grade at Perth since but he's in excellent hands and should still have more to offer; remains of interest.

10yo who had been struggling for a while but bounced back for in-form yard with a win at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft) this month; a 4lb rise isn't harsh and he's a player if that return to form was no one-off.

Way better than this level at his peak but was out of sorts in the spring and, with a fair record fresh, he was entitled to run better two weeks ago.
