Useful French stayer who won the AW Marathon Championship in 2018. Had every chance when finding Raymond Tusk too strong at Newcastle and hard to see why he should turn the tables on that rival.
On a roll at present and earns the right to be here following back to back impressive victories in handicap company. Unbeaten on AW, but that record in danger against today's rivals
Top-class globetrotting stayer proved too tough for Funny Kid at Newcastle when scoring on AW debut. The fact it came 39 days after a trip to Australia makes the effort more commendable and he will take plenty of beating here.
Yet to win on AW and he has never tackled this trip on the Flat. Has too many questions to answer in company that looks so strong.
Developed into a useful middle-distance handicapper for Sir Michael Stoute in 2019. Shaped well on stable debut but has a stiff task at the weights and stamina to prove.
