Three runs for Andre Fabre in France last year, winning a 7f maiden for unraced horses on debut and then running to a fair level in conditions events on his next two starts; sold for 38,000gns in October and gelded; interesting dropped to 6f on this stable/handicap debut; betting revealing.

7f winner on soft ground for Andre Fabre last spring; absent for 312 days prior to his stable debut at Newcastle (6f) last month and he made a mockery of his opening mark, always prominent and coming home clear of his eight rivals (well backed); up 8lb but unexposed as a sprinter and there could well be more in the tank.

Lightly-raced 4yo who is improving as he gains experience, most recently just pipped at Kempton last month when dropped to 6f for the first time; stiff test at the trip should suit and he's open to further progress; unlikely to be missed in the market though (sent off at 8-13, 13-8, 9-4 and 2-1 for his last four defeats).

Only 1lb higher than for his win in a valuable 6f handicap at Kempton in November; ran well for second at Chelmsford on his penultimate start and easy to strike a line through his latest 7f run here when new tactics were deployed; style of racing means he needs a strong pace but that's quite possible here and he needs serious consideration.
