Dual winner over fences in 2017/18. Restricted to just 4 runs last term but creditable runner-up efforts off lower hurdles mark both starts this season. One to consider back over the larger obstacles.

He has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race and two chases from 2m to 3m on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 1 3/4l by Young Bull when second of 9 at 8-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Wetherby over 2m 5f (soft) in December last year.

At The Races Verdict

Rathlin Rose and Guy Disney have teamed up to win this twice, although they aren't helped by having to concede weight to some higher-rated opponents this time. CATAMARAN DU SEUIL has been edging closer and closer to the winner's enclosure, and his latest Leicester second suggested that he is back on a workable mark. Ozzy Thomas has a big chance now he reverts from timber, with Le Reve and Diger Daudaie also in the mix.

Timeform Verdict

CATAMARAN DU SEUIL confirmed himself back in form when runner-up at Leicester last month, again jumping better than is often the case, and rates a serious player on these terms. Ozzy Thomas has been running well over hurdles this season and his record suggests he's better over fences, so rates the main threat ahead of dual winner of this race Rathlin Rose.
