Above-average maiden (RPR 88) on Flat; recorded a 2l win at Catterick (good to soft) on the switch to hurdles; now carries 5lb penalty in a stronger race but is unexposed in this sphere; headgear reapplied.

Two French hurdle starts last spring; not beaten far in the first and had subsequent British hurdle winner La Breille behind in the second; that form looks good enough for her to play a major role on British debut.

11/4

Verdict

After his disappointing British debut, there have to be doubts about BO ZENITH but he is given the chance to put the record straight. Penna Rossa, Jikala and hurdling newcomer Allihies look the main threats, in that order of preference.[Jonathan Neesom]
