Listed-placed twice on the level in France and wasn't beaten far in a Longchamp Group 3 (1m2f) when last seen in June 2022; bought for 260,000Euros since and the yard's French recruits always warrant respect; won't have any issues with the ground.

High class on the Flat, winning the Ebor (1m6f, good to firm) last August; yet to transfer that ability fully to hurdles and the forecast soft ground may be a hindrance, but his Grade 1 fourth at Leopardstown (2m, soft) last month behind Ballyburn and Slade Steel was a step in the right direction (King Of Kingsfield third); has potential off this mark in view of his Flat form.

High class Flat horse, winning the Ebor Handicap and seventh in the Melbourne Cup last season; hurdles form is not so easy to assess, winning a Killarney novice last May and pulled up in the 2m Grade 1 here at Christmas; looks the third or fourth string of the Mullins quintet here.

Point runner-up who left his Rules debut behind when winning a maiden hurdle at Punchestown in February (SP 66-1); looks like a nice prospect but the form has taken a few knocks and he has to give weight to all.
