Verdict

ESPION DU CHENET arrives in great order so is fancied to make amends for his late fall here last month and get back to winning ways. Goodnightngodbless is feared most, especially if fencing better on this occasion, with Great Khan appealing as a solid place prospect on the back of his excellent Gowran fourth.

  1. ESPION DU CHENET (FR)
