Placed in a hurdle race from two starts. Finished 19l behind Cat Tiger when fifth of 10 at 7-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Plumpton over 2m 4f (soft) last month.

Won good ground Worcester bumper on debut before a creditable third under a penalty at Stratford. Seemed unsuited by conditions (heavy) when pulled up on Ffos Las hurdle bow and should do better.

A winner of a NH flat race at 2m on good ground. Pulled up 2 out when 3-1 at Ffos Las over 2m 4f (soft) in a maiden hurdle race won by Summer Name in November last year on his hurdling debut.

At The Races Verdict

FIX SUN made it two in a row since joining Nicky Henderson when scoring in good style at Market Rasen last month and bids to make it a fourth win in the contest for the Seven Barrows handler since 2012. Fraternel shaped as though he needed his first run in 12 months when fifth at Plumpton and is respected along with Book Of Invasions, a winner at Huntingdon two starts ago.

Timeform Verdict

FIX SUN has made an excellent start to his career and can prove a class apart again. Fraternel should be sharper for his reappearance/British debut and is selected to chase him home.
