The 2020 Triumph winner endured a long spell off the track but has had a perfect return to this sphere sandwiching a creditable seventh in the Galway Hurdle, with both successes on the flat arriving in France.

Willie Mullins has won this race three times previously and William Buick is a solid booking to the saddle on what should be a fruitful day for the Norweigan, presenting better value than stable-mate M C Muldoon.

Grade 1 runner-up Buzz is another interesting candidate in this contest for Nicky Henderson.

NB: GOLDSPUR | 1:45pm Godolphin Flying Start Zetland Stakes (Group 3)

His Sandown Park debut win hasn’t exactly been franked but Charlie Appleby’s colt couldn’t have won any easier that day and the son of Dubawi gets an immediate crack at one-and-a-quarter mile.

Can James Doyle land a Newmarket success on Saturday?

Buick has opted for fellow Godolphin representative Hafit but James Doyle rode the selection to victory in Esher so he’s in more than capable hands.

Aidan O’Brien’s Bluegrass is a really well-bred sort and looks another to note in a hot-looking affair.
