Verdict

FLOUEUR has been right on his game the last twice and, having rallied well for third in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham, he promises to be well suited by a return to 3m. As such, he gets the nod over Capodanno, with Dallas des Pictons also considered.

  1. FLOUEUR (FR)
  2. CAPODANNO (FR)
  3. DALLAS DES PICTONS (FR)
