Bought for £320,000 after finishing second in an Irish point; barely came out of second gear in winning at Exeter (soft) three months ago; nice prospect but he's a big, strong chaser in the making who might just lack the finishing kick to win one of these; stable jockey Harry Cobden rides Teeshan.

Half-brother to Grade 1 hurdle winner Brindisi Breeze and useful Irish jumper Indigo Breeze; bought for £320,000 soon after finishing second on Irish point debut in March (good to yielding), and that form has been well advertised under rules by the third this autumn; could be anything.

Verdict

Paul Nicholls unleashes expensive recruit QUEBECOIS, who was second on his Irish point debut in March and might be the answer to an interesting bumper. Jurancon and Ski Lodge (preferred in that order) also showed considerable ability in Irish points, while Kalahari King and Ilfonce are newcomers with good pedigree.[Chris Wilson]
