1m2f winner on the Flat in Germany and second over 1m6f there when last seen in September; has switched to leading trainer ahead of this hurdle debut; market confidence would look significant.

Flat winner in Germany; from the front he strolled home by 21l on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, soft) in November and was only a length off the good yardstick An Bradan Feasa (eighth in the Boodles) when falling late on at Cheltenham the next time; the glaring concern is his subsequent reversal when long odds-on at Chepstow (tongue tied); something to prove after that but much too early to be writing him off.

All six Flat runs in Germany were on good ground, winning over 1m2f; looked very at home on soft when cantering home from modest opposition on his hurdle/stable debut at Wetherby (odds-on) and afterwards his trainer was looking forward to upping him in grade; seems to jump well and could turn out useful.

Sets the standard on his placed efforts in similar events on good to soft/soft in recent weeks; has the cheekpieces he wore on the Flat fitted for the first time over hurdles; thereabouts again but vulnerable to anything with potential.

A rare runner in bumpers for the Easterbys (1-7 since April 2019); certainly plausible on pedigree, being by Derby winner Sir Percy out of a 1m2f-2m winner from a French middle-distance staying family.

Two turf wins on slower than good this summer and creditable third on heavy when last in action on the Flat ten weeks ago; jumped poorly on hurdle debut last month; should be seen to better effect back on the Flat; AW debut but it's unlikely to be an issue on pedigree.
