Only win was in a Chepstow maiden hurdle for Paul Nicholls back in January 2021 (2m3f, heavy); off for 933 days after that novice season; has taken time to find his form for his new yard, but fair efforts on last two starts (15l-second over 2m at Sandown last time); has plummeted in the weights (down 16lb this season); interesting with cheekpieces tried.

Ex-French 7yo who is 0-12 in Britain and hasn't been at his best on last three runs; however, last month's fourth at Sandown (3m, soft) was a step back in the right direction and his mark continues to fall; not ruled out.
