Form & Verdict

Won 1m4f Listed race in France during 2021; should be very well treated in handicap hurdles and although it hasn't turned out that way at about 2m4f so far, the fitting of cheekpieces could be a major plus (all three Flat wins in blinkers).

Won 1m4f Listed race (very soft) in France during 2021; wasn't beaten far in a better race than this over 2m at Haydock last spring but he's generally struggled under both codes since and was tailed off back at Haydock (1m7f, heavy) 18 days ago; lots to prove.

Listed winner on Flat in France; 0-12 in Britain, mostly over hurdles (well held off modest marks the last twice); well treated on best form in this sphere but is by no means guaranteed to reproduce it.

Form & Verdict

Has gone close and won from just two C&D hurdle runs, both last July; pulled up over 2m4f on soft ground (has won on that surface) on last two starts but the latest was after a break and this trip will suit better; one to watch out for off 8lb lower than last summer's win.

Others have shown considerably more under rules and his three runner-up finishes in point-to-points this winter represent relatively modest form; however, at least he arrives in good heart whereas many of these have something to prove at present; not ruled out each-way.

Form & Verdict

Mostly very modest form for Nicky Henderson and pulled up in both staying handicaps for this yard, over fences and hurdles; new aids enlisted but is due a further 4lb drop in the weights from the weekend.
