Form & Verdict
Multiple winner over hurdles/fences in France; has run more modest races than good ones in Britain but has dropped well down the weights and he didn't give up the chase when blinkers replaced cheekpieces at Uttoxeter on Tuesday (2m, good); comes right into it on that form.

Form: 235-F8

W: 11st 9lb

6 yo Gelding

OR: 97

Form & Verdict
Fair form without finding much in handicap hurdles over further; travelled well on return to about 2m on chase debut at Newton Abbot and while never in the hunt (stewards enquired; explanation noted) a clear round would have been the priority after a heavy hurdle fall the time before; has some potential.

Form & Verdict
Made late switch to fences last August and much improved when going down only narrowly from well out of the weights at Stratford in June (2m1f, good); runs off 2lb higher here but was first past the post off this mark over hurdles last summer (demoted); could well have a say.

J: William Kennedy

Made all at Newton Abbot (2m1f, soft) last July only to be disqualified for causing interference; looks interesting on that form but he's not matched it over hurdles and fences since and was tailed off at Worcester last time; others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict
Narrow chase winner at Market Rasen last July and, while he has mostly fallen short of that since, he did run his best race for a while when a close third at Southwell 13 days ago (2m, good); guessy jumping is a worry but has ability at the right level.
