Four French wins in the mud over hurdles and fences at up to 2m2f; needed his comeback run and has gone close in two-small field handicaps subsequently, with and without a hood; raised 4lb for those near misses but his turn looks very near.

Four-time winner when trained in France and came good in Britain at fourth attempt, keeping on well to fend off late challenge from Dr T J Eckleburg in similar race to this over C&D (heavy) in February; subsequent 4lb rise ought to be manageable; obvious contender.

J: Harry Kimber

Four French wins in the mud over hurdles and fences at up to 2m2f; off the scene for 20 months and needed his hurdle return for new yard in December but he came on plenty for it when pressing a well-treated one hard back over fences at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) last month; good claims if no ill effects for leaving off regular hood.

Below par two runs back but in a good run of form otherwise; probably has little margin for error off this mark and he had a hard race on heavy ground last week.

T: Evan Williams

Dual 2m chase winner in the autumn (good to soft/soft) and kept on well from a long way off the pace to press Prince Quali in closing stages over C&D (heavy) in February; also ran well in valuable novices' handicap at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) last month and has a fighting chance today, despite being 3lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Off the same mark as when chasing home a rejuvenated First Flow at Lingfield (2m, soft) and he held every chance the time before when falling late on at Ascot; departed early at Sandown three weeks ago and he deserves a change of luck.

Won his first two chase starts last winter (good to soft/soft) and this progressive 6yo was 1l ahead and looking the likeliest winner only to fall at the final fence at Ascot (2m1f, good) in November when last seen; a 3lb rise isn't harsh and it will be no surprise if he makes amends today.

Form & Verdict

Became patchy over fences but he's gone 2-2 in the blinkers under positive tactics; both were small field affairs over further, but First Flow (runner-up last time) went on to beat Saint Segal at Lingfield; a collective 6lb rise isn't the end of the world.

Rejuvenated in these blinkers in December, winning two in a row from the front in small fields (2m5f/2m3f, heavy/soft); however, tailed off at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in February last time and isn't easy to fancy after that.

Form & Verdict

First defeat since the blinkers went on when beaten 8l into third at Sandown (1m7f, soft) but still ran well and the winner has followed up; 7lb above his last winning mark so perhaps high in the weights, but certainly not discounted.
