Going okay when falling at Leicester and made amends here two weeks ago (2m5f, soft), overcoming early mistakes to win well in the end; 5lb rise isn't the end of the world provided he can sharpen up his act on the jumping front.

Ex-French 6yo who failed to threaten at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) latest and is now 0-16; however, his mark continues to fall and he kept on for a good second there (2m1f, good to soft) in January; possibilities if cheekpieces have positive effect (they didn't on sole previous use in France in 2022).

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.

Seemingly back in good form when third at Plumpton (2m3f, soft) in January and is probably worth another crack at this sort of trip but didn't travel with much zest when well-held fourth at Lingfield last month and is not one to rely upon.
