Half-brother to three French jumps winners (one useful); third of ten on debut in Hexham bumper (good to soft) in April, in what was seemingly an above-average race for that track; should have a future over hurdles; might be the answer.

Out of an unraced sister to smart jumper Winter Escape; an unconsidered 80-1 shot but kept on strongly to win by over 7l over C&D (good to soft) on last month's debut; now has a penalty to shoulder but needs to be taken seriously.

Loves the mud and is unbeaten in two runs since joining Dan Skelton, grinding out a workmanlike success under Charlie Todd at Uttoxeter (2m7f; Floueur well held in fifth; Seefin, Classic Concorde and Lord Snootie pulled up) four weeks ago; may not have finished improving and must be seriously considered despite a 9lb rise in the weights.

Confirmed he has an abundance of stamina when runner-up over 3m5f on heavy at Bangor (Haute Estime 3l behind) and then won the Tim Maloney at Haydock (3m1f handicap, soft) pretty much as he liked; that was off a career-high mark and now up another 8lb, but his overall record over fences is hard to knock.

Form & Verdict

Joined Henry Daly after going close on point debut in May (2m4f, good to firm) and began rules career with promising third in Hereford novice (2m, good) this month; has obvious potential but, given his Flat pedigree, we can't be sure he'll be suited by today's much slower ground.
