Verdict

VAUBAN looks on a very handy mark returning to this sphere judged on his high-class hurdles form, so his claims are crystal clear. His stablemate Absurde is a bit more exposed but warrants respect on the pick of his French form and has the assistance of Frankie Dettori, while Ruling Dynasty and Postileo are others to bear in mind in an intriguing race.

  1. VAUBAN (FR)
  2. ABSURDE (FR)
  3. RULING DYNASTY
