Flat winner in France (1m7f, soft) and runner-up in a 1m2f Epsom novice on his debut for this yard; however, it's been a quiet start over hurdles and looks best watched for now.

Off the mark in her seventh Flat race when staying on best to take a heavy-ground low-grade 2m1f handicap at Bath; should have all the tools to carve out a career over hurdles but unlikely that she'll be good enough to win this.

Low-grade Flat winner over 2m1f on heavy so has plenty of stamina reserves for hurdling; hooded last three runs; impressed when following up her maiden win in a handicap at Sandown (again on soft) and, after getting headed, she rallied to finish close up on good ground at Ascot; down 1lb and it's easy to envisage her running on strongly up the hill.

Low-grade Flat winner over 2m1f on heavy; has plenty of stamina reserves for hurdling and it was all pretty straightforward in winning a 4yo handicap on soft ground at Sandown two weeks ago; might well cope with the 7lb rise but drying conditions could be another matter; the track should suit; hooded the last twice.

2m1f Flat winner on heavy ground (low-grade handicap); has done surprisingly well over hurdles, getting off the mark in a first-time hood at Hereford (soft); now a stone higher in the ratings than when beaten in a heavy-ground handicap the time before and this is stronger again.

Had some useful Flat form in France (1m2f-1m4f; effective on soft) and probably has a future over hurdles; faced a very stiff task first time at Cheltenham where some early interference didn't help.

Fairly useful on Flat in France but has plenty to find on hurdles form, beaten favourite at Fontwell most recently; gelded since and now goes in cheekpieces; those two factors need to prompt marked improvement.

11.5f Flat winner (good) in France in August, when showing promise; well beaten in a Cheltenham Grade 2 event on his British debut; raced freely and prominently when 13l third over C&D (heavy) recently; if settling better, he is one of the more likely winners in his field.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly beaten by a talented horse in France (1m7f, very soft) and should improve on his last-of-three run at Doncaster (beaten under 4l) where his jumping lacked fluency and he looked green under pressure; now tongue tied; likely to hold every chance.
