Form & Verdict

Chase and dual hurdle winner when trained in France; yet to make a major impact in Britain after six runs but seemed to have benefited from a wind op when keeping on well for third over C&D (heavy) last month.

Useful in France and now getting it together for current connections following wind surgery, beating an in-form horse (a winner before and since) over C&D three weeks ago (heavy); could still be well handicapped despite the 7lb rise.

Beaten about 40l in his three qualifying races in December/January but finished well from unlikely position for narrow win in four-runner Southwell handicap (2m, heavy) last month; only 2lb higher here and further progress is possible.

0-5 over hurdles but the form of last month's second at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) was very well advertised by the winner in a valuable race at the weekend, and this fellow is sure to appreciate today's ease in grade; strong claims.

Form & Verdict

Didn't see out 2m4f after making the running at Musselburgh last month but kept on well for second behind very progressive rival on handicap debut at Catterick (1m7f, soft; first-time blinkers) two starts ago and has possibilities if judged on that performance.

Three-time hurdle winner who has made the frame on all three appearances this season; lost third to Polisud in closing stages of C&D (heavy) contest last month but that was still a good effort and William Maggs claims a useful 7lb this time.

Three hurdle wins include two handicaps at Ayr (soft and good to soft); in fair form this winter until running no race last time at Newcastle (heavy no excuse); contender if shrugging aside that disappointment.
