Half-brother to three French jumps winners (one useful); third of ten on debut in Hexham bumper (good to soft) in April, in what was seemingly an above-average race for that track; should have a future over hurdles; might be the answer.

Out of an unraced sister to smart jumper Winter Escape; an unconsidered 80-1 shot but kept on strongly to win by over 7l over C&D (good to soft) on last month's debut; now has a penalty to shoulder but needs to be taken seriously.

Form & Verdict
Joined Henry Daly after going close on point debut in May (2m4f, good to firm) and began rules career with promising third in Hereford novice (2m, good) this month; has obvious potential but, given his Flat pedigree, we can't be sure he'll be suited by today's much slower ground.

Has a Flat pedigree but appears to have potential for jumps, having gone close in a British point (2m4f) in May; subsequently sold for £40,000; market confidence should be heeded on rules debut.

Every chance when crashing out at the last in a maiden point here in March (heavy); was seeing out the 3m trip fine there, and that, allied to a onepaced effort in a pointing bumper previously, suggests he'll find the return to nearer 2m too sharp on this switch to hurdling.
