€120,000 yearling; ready winner of a 2m1f+ Vichy maiden hurdle (very soft) for Gabriel Leenders in September; has subsequently moved to England for high-profile owners, so is worthy of considerable respect despite the penalty.
Alanadi gelding who was a narrow winner of a 2m1f soft-ground conditions hurdle at Nancy in April (for A.Boisbrunet); hooded for his UK debut for Messrs Munir and Souede; rates as a likely type despite the penalty.
Carries the same racing silks as stable star Didtheyleaveuouttwo; dual Flat winner in France for Pascal Bary (1m3f-1m4f); handles soft ground but a complete unknown as to how he'll adapt to hurdling based upon his pedigree; market a helpful guide.
Son of Fame And Glory; cost €45,000 as a 3yo; plugged on at the one-pace on debut in a Ludlow juvenile hurdle (2m, good) when finishing in excess of 7L third to the Alan King-trained Elysees.
2-8 on the Flat in Italy for former handler Il Cavallo In Testa (both wins came over 1m2f at San Siro); half-brother to nine Flat winners (with quality); joined this trainer for €70,000 in July; mildly interesting hurdles newcomer.
Placed in a 2m Class 6 AW handicap at Kempton just over a month ago and remains a six-race maiden on the Flat; makes his hurdling debut today but is surely well out of his depth against far more appealing rivals.
