Completed a hat-trick over fences when winning over 2m5f at Sedgefield (soft) in March last year. Disappointing in three starts since placed at Ffos Las (2m6f, heavy) on his first start last season and others hold stronger claims.

Placed twice last season including over 3m on soft going at Taunton in February. Fair 11L fifth over this C&D on good ground on seasonal debut in October and likely to have improved for the run.

Betting

Forecast

Truckers Lodge (9/4), Diablo De Rouhet (7/2), Poker Play (5/1), Anteros (7/1), Falcons Fall (8/1), On The Road (12/1), Braventara (14/1), Mercenaire (20/1), Zephyros Bleu (25/1)

Verdict

DIABLO DE ROUHET is taken to record his first handicap victory by getting the better of Truckers Lodge in this handicap hurdle contest. The selection showed decent form in novice company and can make a winning handicap debut with Poker Play, a winner in France as a three-year-old taken to finish third.
  1. Diablo De Rouhet
