Fairly useful performer who was successful over 25f at Cartmel off 5 lb higher a year ago. This summer's efforts have been a little underwhelming, though, tried in a tongue strap latest.

Has fallen plenty in the weights and dropped a big hint his turn isn't far away when runner-up over 20f at Perth in June. Much better than bare result at Cartmel since and remains of interest.

Made a winning debut for this yard over fences at Musselburgh (20.3f) in December. Hasn't really built on that, however, and just fair efforts over timber of late. Headgear on.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FLAMBOYANT JOYAUX has made an encouraging start for current connections and proved better than ever when registering a first win over fences at Worcester 4 weeks ago. That is solid form and he still looks on a fair mark despite an 8 lb rise, so is taken to follow up. Wolfcatcher has been shaping as if his turn isn't far away off his reduced mark and rates the main threat.

Betting Forecast

7/1 Elmono (Fr), 11/2 Wolfcatcher (Ire), 40/1 Placedela Concorde, 11/2 On A Promise (Ire), 13/2 Thatbeatsbanagher (Ire), 5/4 Flamboyant Joyaux (Fr)
