Completed his 12-day hat-trick in October 2020 with a C&D success (good); diminishing returns so far this season, but 4lb back below his last winning mark, and drying ground will help; cheekpieces now tried.

J: Miss Olive Nicholls

T: Paul Nicholls

Completed a 12-day hat-trick in October 2020, culminating in this race; two long layoffs since but he was back to form when scoring under Olive Nicholls over C&D in April and Kempton last Sunday, seemingly helped no end by the introduction of cheekpieces; all five wins on good or good to firm but he also has a good piece of heavy-ground form (2021); did it easily last week, so should go well under his penalty in hat-trick bid.

Form & Verdict

French 2m1f hurdle/2m3f chase winner on very soft ground; absence not usually a concern for one from this yard, so maybe the step up to today's sort of trip was the issue on his weakening British debut.

Off the mark in Britain with clearcut success here (3m, good to soft) in November and added to his tally at Taunton (2m7f, soft) in February; below form on latest outing and seemingly overlooked by Charlie Deutsch here but further progress is possible if this longer trip suits.

Successful in two of his last four starts over fences, the latest when beating three rivals at Taunton (2m7f, soft) last month; twice well beaten in between those wins and despite that latest success, it's debatable whether deep ground is what he really wants; could be vulnerable if conditions remain testing.

Winning chaser in France; back over fences he finished second at Wincanton (2m4f) and first at Exeter (3m; again good to soft; off 4lb lower than today); has twice performed moderately in the meantime, latterly in the Grand Military Gold Cup at Sandown; on a recovery mission.

Behind Heros at the time of his hampering at Doncaster latest; not firing over fences before that, but returns to the scene of his maiden hurdle win of early 2022 (1m7f, soft) and mark has edged down further.

Had appeared held off low-100s marks until last month's Warwick class 5 win (2m3f, soft); 6lb rise demands more but no ground issues and her sometime tendency to jump right may go unpunished around here.

Already raised his highest mark defied four times since February 2022, and a lost shoe offers an excuse last time; not certain this shorter trip rates his present optimum, but no ground issues and respected again.
