(3) WUTZELINO came on top in a hard-fought finish at Nantes last month and is sure to be even smarter today. He is the son of champion mare Wutzeline and surely has a bright future ahead of him. (6) GRAZIELA CONTI was an impressive winner of her first start in this code at Saint-Brieuc and although meeting the boys today she must be given a lot of consideration.

Both (1) RONCEY and (2) COCO CITY comes in the race well and both horses relishes the heavy ground. However the former has a ten pounds advantage on Demuro's partner and such weight difference will be crucial in the final yards of the race. (4) JAZZ MELODIE and (7) TRUE ROMANCE that returns from a nineteen months break are two intriguing candidates.
