Fairly useful dual hurdles winner who matched that form at the second attempt over fences when third of 7 in handicap at Warwick 16 days ago. Should have more to offer.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m on good ground. Third of 7 behind Court Master beaten 3l at 13-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Warwick over 2m 4f (good) earlier this month.

Fair hurdler/chaser who seemed amiss on his final outing for Noel Meade 8 months ago and opening British mark looks quite harsh starting out for a new yard.

Placed in two hurdle races, a NH flat race and four chases from 18 starts. Pulled up at the last when 7-1 at Down Royal over 3m (soft) in a chase won by Jurby in January on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Noel Meade in Ireland.

At The Races Verdict

Peter Bowen hasn't got his string fully firing yet, so perhaps FRANCKY DU BERLAIS' Newton Abbot success last month can be upgraded. The seven-year-old landed his first win for two years on that occasion and is fairly handicapped now tackling fences this time. Everlanes ended his spring campaign with a victory at Kempton in March and makes some appeal on his reappearance for shrewd handler Keiran Burke, while Denmead ran well on his comeback to finish third at Warwick just over a fortnight ago and could also make his presence felt.

Timeform Verdict

FRANCKY DU BERLAIS should be able to defy this mark if he can replicate the sort of form he showed when making a winning return over hurdles, so he gets the nod ahead of Denmead, who has the potential to do better as a chaser. Templehills is another one to consider having re-joined Nigel Twiston-Davies.
