Form & Verdict

5yo who won twice in France, over hurdles last May (2m2f, good) and over fences last October (2m3f, heavy; when last seen); new trainer does very well with French recruits and he could have a part to play on British debut.

Consistent sort (over hurdles/fences) in France, producing form figures of 2122321; looks the type who will prove productive for new yard; interesting, especially if the market speaks positively.

Form & Verdict

Won maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m, good to soft) in December and returned to form when third on last month's handicap debut at Newbury (2m, heavy); he might be able to build on that last run and he's a possible contender.

Lightly raced 5yo who won a Southwell maiden (2m, good to soft) in December and stuck to his task pretty well when third on handicap debut at Newbury (2m, heavy) six weeks ago; could still have a bigger run in him.

Second in bumper here in November; won hurdling debut at Southwell (2m, again good to soft) but downhill on both outings since; needs to resume improvement, in a major way.

Form & Verdict

Promising third on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) in December then won easily at Southwell (2m, good to soft); the steady pace appeared to be against him when third of five in a warm little race at Huntingdon (2m, soft) last time when 3l behind runner-up Bluegrass, with whom he's now 6lb better off; this 6yo remains unexposed and retains potential.

Damarta

11st 13lb

J: Sean Bowen

T: Olly Murphy

Learning to settle better as he gathers experience, and came from off the pace to win readily by over 7l at Southwell (2m, good to soft) in January, his second handicap; up 9lb but could still have a lot more to offer.

Verdict

The Olly Murphy-trained DAMARTA remains of interest despite his third of five at Huntingdon last month, when the steady pace may well have been against him. The ex-French Lemoncello is an interesting candidate on his first run for Venetia Williams and he may be the main danger.[Ben Hutton]
