Verdict

The champion trainer is double-handed in this and he may have the two most likely winners. Caro Des Flos passed the post first on his sole start in France only to lose the race. Despite almost a year off, he'd have big claims here given his new trainer. It must be a worry however that the stable's top jockey passes him by and gives another chance to AL BOUM PHOTO after they finished third over 2m4f at Fairyhouse last month. The drop in trip is likely to suit and that partnership can make amends now. Lachares is going the right and can figure in the finish while Kosovo an interesting newcomer. 1. Al Boum Photo 2. Caro Des Flos 3. Lachares
