Has proved a useful servant over hurdles so far but faces a tough assignment in this division

Duc De Meran historical data/form

A Grade 3 winner over hurdles in 2018 (1) HIGHWAY TO HELL has had most of his 2019 season plagued by health problems. Though his last run at Compiegne reassured and he will be very interesting to follow on his first attempt at Pau. (6) STAUNTON STREET has also been sidelined for a several months last season but he seems better than ever and is entitled to take his chance in this highly competitive contest.
