Form & Verdict

Not seen on the Flat since three runs in France in 2019 but has subsequently developed into a useful hurdler; made winning chase debut on latest outing in May and, theoretically, could be on a very good mark for this British Flat debut.

From the front he beat three rivals on his chase debut at Warwick last May (2m, good; 1lb lower) but was pulled up in final chase and followed that with a modest effort on the AW (2m Class 5); now on a retreival mission in first-time blinkers.

Won from the front on chase debut at Warwick (2m, good) last May and then bumped into one who was thrown in at Stratford (2m3f, soft); came up short in a small field at Wetherby (1m7f, soft) 55 days ago and looks on a high enough mark but it's still early days over fences.

Came good at 11th attempt, scoring in good style at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) last month, and ran at least as well when clear second on soft ground at Haydock a fortnight later; must be considered in current mood.

His breakthrough win at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) had been coming and it was quite comfortable in the end; 3lb rise is fine but softer ground might not be, having disappointed on good to soft and twice withdrawn due to similar conditions.

Form & Verdict

0-7 on the Flat in France in 2021; has shown some fairly useful hurdling form in the meantime but was just a modest fourth in run-of-the-mill handicap on latest outing in May; makes British Flat debut today.

Form & Verdict

A maiden after nine runs but looked suited by return to 1m2f when close second at Nottingham (heavy) in August; only 1lb higher here and will be a tough nut to crack if the added cheekpieces have any positive effect.
