Readily made all in four-runner handicap at Carlisle (2m3f, heavy) 12 days ago in first-time tongue-tie/cheekpieces; the strength of that form is dubious, but he's still 3lb lower than when a fair fourth in this last year (good to soft) and is not ruled out; visor replaces cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French; won easily at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft) on second stable start and at least as good when runner-up to a well-handicapped horse at Kempton (2m5f, soft); strong form claims and he's Harry Derham's only runner on the card.

Ex-French gelding; ran into the highly promising Willmount on British debut (Newbury novice) and then he bolted up in last week's first handicap at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft); gets in here 3lb well-in under a penalty and should take some stopping.

Form & Verdict

Has dropped to a good mark but he's been below par over fences this season and returning to hurdles failed to reignite the fire here last time; this is no easy race in which to rediscover some form.

Won sole point start last May (3m, yielding) and he's 2-2 under rules after hurdle wins at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) and Ayr (2m5f, soft); has had wind op since and a tongue-tie goes on; others have more substance to their form but stamina looks to be a strong suit and he's in good hands to progress.
