Still only five, the French recruit made a pleasing start to life over the sticks in Britain which culminated in a third in a Grade 1 at Aintree’s Grand National Festival back in April.

The six-year-old is built like a chaser and should have far more to offer in this sphere, with the return to this sort of track sure to suit, finishing ahead of Honest Vic in Wales a month ago.
