French Flat winner who scored by just under 1l when 4-5 at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) on his hurdle and stable debut; improvement needed but he's in excellent hands to progress and his top trainer has won three of the last six runnings of this race (which is usually staged at Doncaster).

1m2f Flat winner in France and the stable's three previous winners of this race were French recruits with low mileage in Britain; burdened with lots of weight but wouldn't have been out of place in Friday's Triumph and it was very easy for him in conceding a penalty to Roaring Legend in a Listed race at Musselburgh last time (good to soft; has won on soft/heavy); has the scope to keep improving.

No great shakes on the Flat; placed in both completed starts over hurdles, behind the very smart Burdett Road first time out and then 9l off Royal Way at Ludlow; better off at the weights with that rival and drying conditions are probably a good thing on handicap debut.
