Sole success was over 1m4f (soft) when trained by Andre Fabre in France. Travelled well for a long way on hurdles debut at Plumpton this month, at least has fitness from that effort and faces a moderate bunch now.
Multiple winner on the continent but makes British racecourse bow with temperament under question having refused to race previously two outings. Hood goes on today.
Patchy record over jumps (1-29), though did gain that sole success in 2m3½f good-ground handicap hurdle at Clonmel in May 2017. Third start for this yard, AW/Flat bow (0-5 in bumpers).
A 30-race maiden, including 22 previous attempts on the Flat. Stamina questions to be answered on sole previous try at this sort of trip on AW at Kempton. Others preferred on Flat return.
Record is 0-10 on the AW, with two recent efforts here and at Southwell over this sort of trip offering very little to suggest that run is going to end. Best passed over.
Just the one win from 17 starts, that coming at Wolverhampton last March, but basically moderate form since including when beating just one of 11 rivals home over C&D on Wednesday.
Age Of Wisdom (10/11), Cantabro (11/4), Millen Dollar Man (6/1), Ladofash (10/1), Chestnut Storm (14/1), Ocean Bentley (25/1)
