Emphatic winner of a Plumpton seller (2m, good to soft) in November but he fell next time and was only third of six at Plumpton (beaten 9l) 18 days ago; dropped 3lb but he takes on plenty of unexposed types here and looks vulnerable.

Justified favouritism at Newcastle in December and took another step forward when narrowly beaten at Wetherby latest; the way he stuck to his task there suggests he will benefit from this step up in trip; leading claims.

Trained in 26-race hurdles career by Milton Harris, best when coming from off the pace to land the Silver Trophy at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) last month; ran creditably at Plumpton latest but needs to hit a new high on this first attempt beyond 2m6f.

J: Toby Wynne

T: Robbie Llewellyn

Has won his last two handicap chases and just about career-best form when winning by 6l over C&D last month; soft ground was slower than ideal when tailed off on his return to hurdles at Bangor; 6lb higher than for that recent course win but should give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Made a winning debut over hurdles (2m1f) at Nantes and changed hands for £58,000 in the spring after finishing runner-up over fences at Angers; he looks to have more to offer for his new yard so is very much one to consider now going handicapping.

Ex-French 6yo; unplaced all four hurdling starts for Venetia Williams last season but, following a wind op, is 2-2 since switched back to chasing this term, the latter win over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; should be fine on today's slower ground and has plenty of scope for further progress.

Won in good style at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) last February and in front when falling three out over fences at Uttoxeter (3m, heavy) in November with first-time cheekpieces; back over hurdles off what should be a competitive mark, but there's also a step back down in trip to weigh up.
