Form & Verdict

Easy winner at Compiegne (2m1f, heavy) in October and over C&D (good to soft) in January, having changed stables in between; looked a useful prospect last time, making all and unchallenged (form working out well); must concede weight all round but commands major respect.

Acts on heavy ground; ex-French 4yo who has won two races at Kempton since joining Paul Nicholls and remains unbeaten; had to work hard in the Adonis (Grade 2) last time but is very well regarded by his trainer and should have plenty more to offer; one of the main contenders.

Form & Verdict

Fair on the Flat, successful over 1m3f; has taken very well to hurdling, winning at Market Rasen and Warwick (both 2m, soft); jumped superbly on second occasion, skipping clear three out and soon in no danger; open to further improvement and should make his presence felt in this higher grade.

1m3f winner on the Flat when trained by Johnny Murtagh (RPR 75); smooth winner of a juvenile hurdle at Market Rasen last month (2m, soft) where his jumping improved as the race went on; open to improvement and he's a major player despite his 7lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Shaped well on debut and confirmed that promise with a bloodless victory over C&D (good to soft; 8-11) in November, making the odd mistake but having the race sewn up entering the straight; meets a higher calibre of rival here but looks to have a big engine and should not be underestimated.

Second foal; dam French 11.5f-1m7f Flat winner, half-sister to French Grade 1 hurdle winner; trainer does well with juvenile hurdlers and this is one to be interested in on his debut.

1-14 on Flat; showed something to build on when fourth of ten on hurdling debut at Exeter (28-1) in November, but he's in considerably deeper here.

1-14 on the Flat and fourth since in his three hurdle races; last two of those were his only two runs on soft, but probably a bit below his Flat level; 10lb lower than this time last year.

Useful on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien, making the frame in the Irish Derby; made a pretty smooth transition to hurdling in seven-runner race at Sandown (2m, good to soft) three weeks ago, not hard pressed to assert on the run-in; likely to improve significantly and yet another with serious claims.
