Won 15-runner newcomers race at Auteuil (by 2½ lengths from Hell Red, leading 3 out) in 2019/20 on hurdling debut. Has left Francois Nicolle and transferred to Paul Nicholls so very likely to improve.
Just touched off on debut in Plumpton juvenile hurdle in September. That wasn't a deep race and was brushed aside in a better contest at Chepstow 3 weeks later.
Flat bred and ignored in the betting but showed something when fifth of 12 in a bumper here a month ago. Hurdles debut.
Joint winner of 11.6f handicap on the Flat at Haydock in June. Runner-up in 3 of 4 starts since, including on hurdles debut at Warwick 16 days ago. Likely to build on that.
Diamond Boy gelding. Half-brother to 4 winners, including useful hurdler Destin d'Ajonc and fairly useful hurdler Fleuve d'Ajonc. Dam 1¾m/15f winner.
Stoutly bred and shaped in kind when fourth of 7 on debut at Wincanton last month.
Worthadd gelding. Half-brother to 4 winners on Flat, including useful 1m winner Cavaleiro. Dam lightly raced on Flat. Overcame inexperience to make a winning debut in a 3-y-o bumper at this track.
Well-beaten eleventh of 12 to The Worthy Brat in bumper at this course on debut 33 days ago. Makes hurdles debut up in trip.
Fourth of 12 in maiden at Angers (14.4f, good to soft) on sole Flat run for E. & G. Leenders. Joined successful yard.
Monmiral (11/8), Duke Of Condicote (3/1), Honneur D'ajonc (13/2), Ronde De Nuit (13/2), The Worthy Brat (17/2), Yggdrasil (10/1), Bourbali (12/1), Shutupshirley (150/1), Devongate (200/1), Zellerate (300/1)
MONMIRAL made the perfect start in a 15-runner contest at Auteuil in March and having transferred to Paul Nicholls there should be plenty more to come. He's fancied to defy a penalty, perhaps at the chief expense of Duke of Condicote and course bumper winner The Worthy Brat.
