Form & Verdict

Well beaten in sole Flat start in Italy; half-brother to smart hurdler Saldier and duly improved for the switch to this code at Warwick (2m, soft) on British debut; jumped awkwardly at the last two flights but should become tidier with experience; respected under 7lb penalty for that win.

11st 2lb

J: Gavin Sheehan

T: Gary Moore

Half-brother to very smart 2m hurdle winner Saldier; well beaten in Italy on sole run on Flat; unbeaten over hurdles at Warwick, Exeter, Chepstow and Haydock; the Chepstow race (2m, soft) was a Grade 2, with only five runners but he stormed home 21l clear, before he easily justified 2-5 favouritism at Haydock (heavy) despite mistakes at the last two flights; lacks the Grade 1 form of the Mullins contenders but it's hard to say just how good he is.
