Ange Guerrier won four times on the Flat in France and showed promise on his hurdles bow at Taunton but finished tailed off at Ffos Las on his latest start in January. Points winner Court In Session was second in an Uttoxeter bumper on his debut under Rules but weakened quickly and was pulled up when quietly fancied over 3m at Perth. He could do better dropped in distance and Western Approaches has already run well in bumpers on fast ground. OUTRAGEOUS REQUEST looks the one to beat on his second at Limerick in May, however, though Flat winner Iron Condor could yet have a future over hurdles.
