Analysis

Willie Mullins: "He jumped well and maybe more like a chaser. He was bought as a chaser and is a typical Beneficial. He came from France, and if he was raised in Ireland he would probably be running in a four-year-old point-to-point now. He's precocious enough and has a good standard of ability. I see him as a chaser long-term and Cheltenham isn't my first thought for him. If the ground is dry we'll probably skip it and he might go back to France."
