Form & Verdict

Well beaten in his two runs last season following wind surgery but he's won before on the back of moderate runs and this is his sort of race; not on a bad mark for his new yard.

Returned from 508-day absence to make winning stable debut at Ffos Las (3m, soft) in November but his form has nosedived since, and it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task here.

Only 3-32 but he's on a perfectly fair mark on the best of his form for a previous stable and this trip on testing ground has suited him well in the past; long absence to overcome so market confidence would be welcomed.

T: Richard J Bandey

A fairly useful 2m2f winning chaser in France; yet to add to that for his current yard but he arrives in good nick, sixth of 14 in 2m3f Exeter handicap in January; that race has thrown up four subsequent winners so he merits serious consideration off a 3lb lower mark.

Mostly kept to sharper tracks than this over fences for new yard and a recent fourth of nine finishers at Plumpton (2m3f, soft) further suggests he has his share of weight without some improvement.

Mixed record in five runs for current yard but it was an encouraging return at Fakenham (2m5f, good to soft) and softer conditions this afternoon should benefit this heavy-ground winner in France; respected.

Form & Verdict

0-7 under rules but runner-up in two of his three chases last winter, most recently behind subsequent Cheltenham Festival winner Chambard at Fontwell (2m3f, soft; first-time cheekpieces); well worth another crack at 3m and he likes this ground, so as long as this run isn't badly needed he should go well; cheekpieces left off.

0-8 under rules but was second in two 2m3f chases last season and was running a big race before penultimate-fence fall at Ffos Las (3m, soft) last month; still very unexposed over this sort of trip and can play a major role if the first-time visor has a positive effect.

The winner of two staying chases but he's become a hard horse to predict and, although placed on heavy ground, his improved form has come on surfaces no softer than good to soft.

Out of form this season and 4lb wrong for today's stable debut but is effectively 19lb lower than when placed at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) in early 2022; swaps visor for refitted blinkers; worth a glance in the betting.
