Form & Verdict
Has struggled in two hurdle runs in France this autumn but the first was a Grade 3 event, and he was successful off this mark over fences here (2m, soft) last November; comes with some risks attached but he's versatile trip-wise and could be dangerous if he can revive back in this sphere.
