Respectable efforts in defeat over fences last season for Philip Hobbs. Low-key return for new yard but bit of encouragement (on back of wind op) when midfield over hurdles here (21f) subsequently.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

An interesting race with the vote in favour of FRENCH PARADOXE. He got firly back on track when defeating next-time-out winner Flash Collonges at Newbury in December and further improvement is likely in the offing now handicaping. Miah Grace, Pop The Cork and Elysian Flame head up the dangers.

Betting Forecast

8/1 Shannon Bridge (Ire), 5/1 Miah Grace, 50/1 Some Buckle (Ire), 25/1 Sakhee's City (Fr), 25/1 Kayf Adventure, 11/2 Pop The Cork, 7/2 French Paradoxe (Fr)
