French bumper winner who scored comfortably at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) last Thursday on his second start since leaving Nicky Henderson; strong claims under a 7lb penalty if repeating that latest form.

J: Richie McLernon

Made very good progress and won four times on soft/heavy ground last season; should be fine on the less testing surface here and a 6lb rise for last month's ready success at Newcastle does not look excessive; respected.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the third attempt over hurdles over C&D (heavy) a fortnight ago, which was her second start back from another absence; has the potential to be better than this opening mark in view of her useful bumper form.

Won C&D maiden on heavy ground in March and runner-up over C&D on both subsequent appearances (heavy/good to soft); today's faster ground may not be ideal but her handicap mark is workable and, if her useful bumper form is a guide, she may yet do better over hurdles.

Form & Verdict

His best form has come over 2m4f+ but surplus stamina may be no bad thing in the conditions and he's had wind surgery since his 15l fifth at Kelso (2m6f, heavy) in December last time out, where he was disputing the lead two out; could run well.

Ended last season with two fairly good efforts, more recently when third at Kelso (2m6f, good), but is seemingly on the downgrade now and some of the others have more appealing profiles.

His best form has come over 2m4f+ so it was an encouraging return from wind surgery when not far away over 2m at Hexham (heavy); these conditions won't faze him and he's considered.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up over C&D (soft) last November before a win at Ayr (2m, good to soft) and a solid second at Kelso (2m, heavy); only seventh at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) 11 days ago after a two-month break but he may have been unsuited by the right-handed track and he's a possible contender.

Three hurdle wins include two handicaps at Ayr (soft and good to soft); in fair form this winter until running no race last time at Newcastle (heavy no excuse); contender if shrugging aside that disappointment.

Form & Verdict

In good form on the Flat last August and he's one to watch in the betting in this first handicap hurdle; however, he was tailed off in a novice hurdle at Ayr on last month's stable debut and has something to prove in this code, and on testing ground.
