Form & Verdict

Multiple winner on the Flat and over hurdles but he's on a lengthy losing run and has been well held under both codes in last three starts; drops back in grade off a dangerous mark but he was beaten 18l over C&D (first-time visor) last time and needs to significantly raise his game.

Formerly a very useful Flat-racer in France; has been switched to hurdling for this yard since February and he was an easy winner here on his penultimate run before a respectable second in another C&D novice last time; still has potential in this sphere and he looks interesting on his handicap hurdle debut.
