King Robbe FR
Won three starts ago but struggled since. More needed to win from this mark.
Placed first up in the past so don not entirely discount here with a top jockey riding.
P C Boudot
H A Pantall
Back to back wins before disappointing 8L seventh at Chantilly AW end of November. Likely worth another chance.
1.75L third at Chantilly AW over 1600m a month ago. That form reads well and worth holding safe.
Elusive Foot IRE
1.5L success at Deauville over 1500m AW start of December. Upped in the weights but improving.
Comes into this in good form. Beaten favourite last time however when bidding to go back to back. Needs more.
J C Rouget
Sesame Birah IRE
Second on last two starts. Clearly in great form and close to another victory. Drawn well with good jockey booked. Keep safe.
African Grey FR
Has needed first start back in the past so likely to prove best watched.
Miss Believe FR
Beaten just a head at Deauville AW over 1900m 18 days ago. Up in grade.
J P Gauvin
Spirit Of Foot IRE
Won four starts ago but not at same level subsequently. Needs further progression.
Unexposed after six starts. Best days remain ahead of him and holds each way claims if at best.
3L success at Chantilly AW 1600m middle of November. Interesting.
H A Pantall
Progressing steadily this campaign. Placed on last two starts and holds each way claims.
Wheel Of Chance FR
3.5L fifth on reappearance at Toulouse was promising but this is tougher. Needs to improve again.
Mid-field Chantilly AW finish on reappearance. Should progress from that and has an each way chance if doing so.
Modest performances recently and will need to improve.
Racing and Sports
BOSIOH (4) placed in a similar level last start and rates a leading contender with that from reading well. ELUSIVE FOOT (5) impressed when winning at Deauville. Showed a likeable attitude that day and no surprise were he able to go back to back. SESAME BIRAH (7) run well on all starts this campaign. Gets to the right opportunity and is easy to fancy. KARMOUTCHO (13) made the frame the last twice. Each way player. MINOTAUROS (3) disappointed when bidding for third consecutive success last time. Threat to all if bouncing back.
