Form & Verdict
Some smart chase form for Tom George as recently as autumn 2021 (at 2m3f-2m6f) but he wasn't himself in just three runs last year, over fences and hurdles; however, this is a big drop in class so is by no means ruled out for new yard; tongue tied on last two starts but not today.

Espoir De Teillee

12st 6lb

J: Miss Alice Stevens

T: B F Brookhouse

Useful chaser for Tom George at best but had form figures of 0PP on last three runs for that trainer; some sort of revival is possible now switched to hunter chasing but market may prove best guide having been off since last May.

Form & Verdict
Multiple winner, mostly on good/good to soft; found a niche at this level last spring, winning three at 2m4f-3m following his staying-on third in this race (soft); can go well back at 3m on return from break.

Form & Verdict
Course winner at 2m4f who is a dual 3m winner on good/good to soft; however, he was beaten a long way on soft in this race 12 months ago and these conditions are unlikely to be up his street.

Form & Verdict
Promising staying chaser in late 2019, including on heavy, but only lightly raced since and he finished remote for new connections in a point 23 days ago when back from a layoff; is one to watch this time.

Form & Verdict
Five-time winning jumper at up to 2m6f in France, mostly on slow ground; hasn't run over fences since May 2021 and was pulled up on most recent start last April but has joined an in-forrm yard; best to check the market.

Gaboriot

11st 12lb

J: Mr George Cowley

T: Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero

Successful five times (hurdles/fences) in France; pulled up in Grade 3 handicap at Auteuil when last seen nine months ago; has something to find on bare ratings but market support should be heeded on British debut.

Form & Verdict
Winning 2m4f hurdler on good to soft who made successful return to points in November; not as good next time and the balance of his form suggests plenty more will be needed in this company.

Form & Verdict
Ex-Irish; very talented 3m chaser in his prime but his form has tailed off in recent times and he didn't run much of a race under these conditions for new yard at Taunton only last week (9-4); regularly wore a tongue-tie in Ireland and it's refitted today so he may do a lot better.

Lost his way for Noel Meade but was very smart at about 3m in his day and he could yet win more races for Archie Watson; market could be useful; trip/ground is fine; bought for £48,000 in September.

Verdict

The tongue-tie goes back on Tout Est Permis and it may well make all the difference but he ran no sort of race at Taunton last week and his current wellbeing has to be proved. Espoir De Teillee is another who needs to get out from under a cloud and preference is for NOT THAT FUISSE who ran well in this race 12 months ago when he showed he could handle 3m on soft.[Emily Weber]
