11/4

Top class chaser in his prime, enjoying something of an Indian summer over timber this season and has looked very good at times. Tough to write him off.

9/2

Previous form makes him a standout player, enthusiasm is of course tempered by the fact he hasn't raced for 19 months. Trainer should have him fit, though stable jockey has overlooked him it seems.

Fair run at Punchestown on New Year's Eve but has to improve on ratings if he's to grab this pot.

First start in this country so remains something of an unknown, won last start in France back in November 2013 and has joined powerful owner though stable jockey appears to have bypassed him for debut run.

611-0OR:
4/1

Third runner for the champion trainer and also making first Irish appearance having won final outing in France in September 2014 impressively. The mount of champion jockey today, which may indicate he's shown up well at home.

Not seen on the racecourse for the thick end of two years, had previously looked progressive over these obstacles. Market may guide expectations for return.

Held by some of these on old form, he has rather lost his way of late and, despite the trainer's good form, is difficult to fancy in this field.

Betting

Forecast

Hidden Cyclone (11/4), Bonbon Au Miel (4/1), Diakali (9/2), Tycoon Prince (9/2), Ttebbob (8/1), Aurko (8/1), I Shot The Sheriff (16/1)

Verdict

A tough race to asses given that many of the runners are returning to the track after long absences. The champion trainer fires three at this and, strictly on form, Diakali has the clearest credentials. He hasn't run for 19 months however and faces two French-import stablemates that could be anything. Both have won their only previous outings and so it is suggested to side with the champion jockey's choice BONBON AU MIEL, who cruised home in his previous run. Stablemate Aurko also has plenty potential in famous colours. I Shot The Sheriff must also defy a long absence but was going the right way when last seen. Hidden Cyclone should run an honest race again but, at 12, it will be a surprise if there isn't something waiting in the wings to best him.
