Fairly useful maiden hurdler who ran a cracker when runner-up in a novices' handicap chase at Hereford in December. Reportedly bled final start but given time since and returns with yard in good form.

Fairly useful hurdler/chaser in France, winning over fences on his final couple of outings in 2019. Well held on yard debut over hurdles at Ascot in October but may well be sharper now back chasing.

Confirmed promise of return when capitalising on 3 lb lower mark at Southwell (15.8f) in August. Ran up to best when third at Kempton (18f) latest and he should remain competitive.

Gradual progress in trio of novice hurdles last winter and showed aptitude for chasing despite falling late on at Taunton (18f) last month. Did tend to jump left then but he remains with potential.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

SAINT DE VASSY was clearly not 100% when last seen in March but his previous Hereford second is form that has been well and truly boosted since and he's given the nod to bounce back on his return to action. Frero Banbou remains with potential and is feared, along with Folly Gate and Keep Moving for the in-form Philip Hobbs team.

Betting Forecast

11/1 Keep Moving (Fr), 4/1 Saint De Vassy (Fr), 8/1 Frero Banbou (Fr), 8/1 Golden Whisky (Ire), 12/1 Night Of Sin (Fr), 13/2 Solar Impulse (Fr), 6/1 Folly Gate (Fr), 10/1 Mine's A Pint, 8/1 Equus Millar (Ire)
