Sixth in the Prix dメAmerique twelve months ago. Has been seen out just twice since and latterly suffered a heavy fall in a conditioning race. It is imperative he makes the frame this time but it looks a stiff test

Winner of this contest in 2017 but has run little since. Earned his berth for the big race when a valiant Prix de Bourgogne third at odds of 50/1. Still room for improvement and he can be expected to give the Belgique a good go

Second of Allaireメs runners here. Like stablemate Bird Parker he will not be under any great pressure and with shoes on can be regarded an outsider of note

High-class Swedish trotter with an enviable strike rate. Never had to dip into reserves in Prix Tenor de Baune on Christmas eve and is now unbeaten from two at Vincennes. Bold Eagle's principal rival here

Turfcom race preview

Although runner-up in both preps (15) BOLD EAGLE is still considered the best horse in Europe and is as versatile as they come. He faces another stiff test here against the dynamic (10) READLY EXPRESS who won the Tenor de Baune with ease but should still come off best. (11) BELINA JOSSELYN stays shod but Bazire still believes she can make the first three. (7) CARAT WILLIAMS is under similar pressure and while he did not find the going easy in the Bourbonnais he should nonetheless show improvement. (5) BRIAC DARK did everything asked of him in the Bourgogne and should again acquit himself competitively.
