Fair chaser in France, winning amateur riders minor event at Auteuil in 2021/22. Missed last season and left David Cottin for €10,000. Left yard debut well behind when second at Wincanton 5 weeks ago and entitled to come on again.

Left previous chasing efforts behind when winning 17f handicap at Plumpton in April. Well held next 3 starts but sparked back to life by first-time cheekpieces and a tongue strap when capitalising on a falling mark returned to hurdling here 5 weeks ago. Big player with a repeat back chasing.

Fair ex-French hurdler who found just one too good all 4 starts in juvenile/maiden hurdles last term. Again runner-up when going agonisingly close on return/chase debut at Fontwell (19.5f, soft), a race he probably would've won but for a bad mistake 2 out. Heavy ground an excuse since. Headgear on.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ALTO ALTO responded well to headgear/a tongue strap when scoring over hurdles here 5 weeks ago and can follow up back in this sphere. Prince Quali was all the better for his yard debut/belated return when runner-up at Wincanton and is next best.

Betting Forecast

11/2 Give Me A Moment (Ire), 7/4 Prince Quali (Fr), 3/1 Alto Alto (Fr), 11/4 Aviles (Fr)
