Eighth foal; half-brother to French winners Age D'Or (1m4f and 14.7f AQPS Flat/2m1f-2m4f chase) and La Baghera (2m4f-2m7f cross-country chase); placed at Auteuil (2m1f, heavy) last spring in his two hurdle races, before fetching 140,000 euros last May; hooded and tongue tied for all three French runs but not today; makes British debut in what looks a weak race, so has good chance.

Minor promise in bumpers; others may know too much for him now hurdling but is bred to improve now he goes jumping so is worth watching for the future, perhaps when handicapping.

Midfield in C&D maiden hurdle on soft ground just before Christmas, improving on his debut effort; represents major yard and could take another step forward; not without a chance.

Out of a useful jumper from the family of high-class chaser Cooldine; showed only minor promise when fifth of seven on last month's debut at Exeter (2m, good) and needs to take a big step forward.

Point winner who was a promising third on his bumper debut in March 2021, and he was then absent until Hereford (2m, soft) last month where he was a 22l fifth of 14 on hurdle debut; improvement required but he may have needed that latest outing and is not ruled out.

Verdict

Market confidence would be welcomed after so long out but JOHNNYWHO is potentially very smart. He had none other than the recent Challow winner Hermes Allen some 19l behind when he won his Irish point and he needs to be winning this to justify his Ballymore entry at Cheltenham. In D’Or ran to a fair level in France and is his most likely danger unless Ranging Bear is good or Starevitch can step up on his Hereford form.[Alistair Jones]
