Verdict

COKO BEACH looks to have the race at his mercy if fit after a long break. His form is well above his rivals and this looks an easy opportunity to get back to winning ways (has not won since racing in France). Bothar Dubh will have his supporters and has a reasonable chance if using his fitness to his advantage but has plenty to find on official figures from the selection. Kasakh Noir would have been a strong favourite for this race three years ago but he has had his share of training problems and is difficult to back with confidence.
