Verdict

A dual juvenile hurdle winner back in the summer, SACRE PIERRE was no spent force when coming to grief at the last on handicap debut at Doncaster in December. He appeals as being on a good mark and gets the nod to come out on top. Sao Maxence on belated return/handicap debut following a wind op is of interest, ahead of another low-mileage sort in Feivel.
