Useful in France, including when not far away in 1m Listed event (very soft) in the spring but, following a 110,000euros sale, he had a remote finish on debut for this yard at Haydock last month; best watched for now.

Useful in France, including a 1m1f win on soft last autumn; last seen finishing second in a 1m conditions race at Nantes (good to firm) in June and changed hands for 110,000euros the following month; very good new yard has enjoyed lots of success with French recruits and it'll be interesting to see what the market makes of him.

Form & Verdict

Has won on most types of ground; however, off current mark he would be more appealing granted the deepest surface; 3-3 on heavy, including last two handicap attempts (well held in Listed grade since).

Took his record on heavy ground to 3-3 (C&D first occasion) when taking 1m handicaps at Nottingham and Newmarket last autumn; below par in a Doncaster Listed race and Newbury Spring Cup since returning to action; best to look elsewhere unless the ground rides particularly deep.
