Muhtathir gelding; dam French Listed-placed 2m1f hurdle winner, half-sister to bumper/smart 2m6f-3m2f hurdle/chase winner Roi Des Francs out of half-sister to smart French jumpers Polivalente & Grand Souvenir; champion trainer has excellent strike-rate in bumpers, particularly on home soil this season (31-98); could be a class apart from these rivals and the market may reveal plenty.

Decidedly in and out in his short career to date which has involved some very stiff tasks; too keen when never sighted in Scottish Champion Hurdle (handicap) recently in which stablemate Bialystok was second; hard to be confident in.

Decidedly in and out in his short career to date, running respectably but finding far less than the winner when third of 12 to Effernock Fizz at Fairyhouse (2m, heavy) three weeks ago; needs more, but he may not be fully exposed and a strongly run race would probably play to his strengths.

Clipped heels when pulled up (40-1 SP) for the County earlier this month; 4lb lower here and had some smart form behind Quai De Bourbon and Tullyhill previously this term; unlikely we've seen the best of him yet and this is a drop in grade; respected.
