Form & Verdict

Triple hurdle winner but he's 0-8 over fences and has been beaten 23l or more in his two runs (2m3f/2m7f) this season; well treated on his best chase form last term but he has questions to answer and all of his wins have come on heavy.

Form & Verdict

Has a patchy profile and was a tailed-off third of four over C&D in November but that may have come too soon after his brave chase debut win here (3m, good; off 4lb lower) ten days earlier; has had another wind op since his last run and he's a big player if he can bounce back after a break.

Very capable off this sort of mark as a hurdler and he got up late in the day to make a successful chase debut in a competitive C&D handicap ten days ago (good ground); there were a few fences omitted that day but no knocking the form and he's only 4lb higher.

Given his good record when fresh his recent Chepstow run was a tad underwhelming, for all that it came in a competitive handicap hurdle; current mark is not beyond him but this is a tough starter over fences.

Form & Verdict

0-12 over fences but he's well handicapped on his best form in 2021 including runner-up efforts at Ffos Las (3m, good) and Hereford (3m1f, good to firm); returned from a lengthy absence with a respectable third of four in a C&D novice (good to soft) three weeks ago and he looks interesting back in a handicap.

Three hurdle wins in France; his first success of any note in Britain was when winning over 2m5f at Newton Abbot a year ago (soft), a victory that seemed unlikely until he went into overdrive late on; returns on a good mark but with fitness issues.

Three hurdle wins but 0-13 as a chaser and ran poorly latest; perhaps the drop in trip and going this way around may help but obvious risks.
