Verdict

Fresh can be the time to catch COPAIN DE CLASSE so, while he has a bit to prove back from over 2 years off the track, it's worth taking the chance that he returns in top form and outclasses his rivals on hunter debut. Last year's winner Dieu Vivant is in form and a clear danger.

  2. DIEU VIVANT (FR)
  3. TRIO FOR RIO (IRE)
