Fair Flat winner for this yard a year ago. Disappointing in handicaps of late but certain to have been well prepared for this hurdles bow.

Half-brother to fairly useful chaser Mallorca, dam 6f winner. Fairly useful form in just 3 races on Flat in France for B. de Montzey, winner at 1m in 2019. Interesting hurdles debutant.

Successful twice at up to 1m for Jamie Osborne during second half of 2019. Big disappointment on reappearance/handicap bow in August but likely to offer a lot more now hurdling.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

VIROFLAY was the best of these on the level when trained in France, and having joined powerful NH connections, he rates a very interesting hurdles debutant. Overpriced Mixer was well held on his debut for Nicky Henderson at Newmarket but has presumably been purchased with jumping in mind, so is feared most.

Betting Forecast

8/1 Chinese Whisperer (Fr), 33/1 Crazy Love, 66/1 Now We're Touring (Ire), 7/4 Viroflay (Fr), 25/1 Kentucky Hardboot (Ire), 15/8 Overpriced Mixer, 50/1 Little Tipsy, 9/1 Can't Stop Now (Ire)
