Verdict

Titan De Sarti arrived in this country with a tall reputation and was made favourite to beat Sam Winner on his hurdling debut at Cheltenham. Only fifth on that occasion, he was also slightly disappointing over this C&D last month when second to Third Intention. He will surely win races in time but could be worth opposing again in this with CEDRE BLEU. Lightly-raced, the Le Fou gelding was beaten less than four lengths by the useful Prince Pretender in a Listed contest at Auteuil on his only start over timber and it's taken for granted that he'll improve on that now with Paul Nicholls. Lapin Garou, another French import, might need this so Towcester winner Ultravox is taken to fill the minor placing.
