Fairly useful winner on Flat, stays 12.5f. Sold from Ian Williams 19,000 gns in October but lacked fluency and never a factor on opening hurdles run 16 days ago. Usual cheekpieces back on.

Offered something to work on when third of 5 in a Sligo bumper on sole outing for Ellmarie Holden in 2018. Off 3 years but also displayed promise until falling late on over C&D 3 weeks ago.

Half-brother to 2 winners on Flat, including French 1¼m-13f winner Robin Blood. Dam unraced. Failed to meet market expectations in a Fontwell bumper last month but it wasn't devoid of promise.

Dam closely related to useful hurdler Cartwright. Fairly useful on Flat, stays 11f. Off a year having been lame (also had a wind op) and didn't go with much promise over C&D recently. Tongue tied.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Having been gelded and operated on for his breathing, GALSWORTHY made a good start to hurdling when third over C&D 3 weeks ago and appeals as being the one to beat. Art Man is second choice in a first-time tongue tie, with Matewan likely to know more this time.

Betting Forecast

5/1 Faitque De L'isle (Fr), 9/4 Galsworthy, 7/2 Art Man (Fr), 13/2 Matewan (Ire), 12/1 Bigbadmattie (Ire), 10/1 Shining Blood (Fr), 50/1 Agent Zigzag (Ire)
