(10) ROKSANEH ran a good race on re-entry last year and is from the on-form Fabre stable who is seldom seen in the handicap division. She is fairly treated in the weight and can be given some thoughts. (14) BARODAR was unlucky in his last start at Cagnes sur Mer and will win a race like this soon or later. (1) NAIF looks interesting first time in a handicap. (5) BEAU MASSAGOT was well-backed in his last run and is another to consider.

Malaaw 17

bay g Kendargent - Sky High Flyer (Anabaa)

4 8-11
 - 

Has been in good heart lately in the claiming division and is definitely one for the shortlist

Malaaw historical data/form

It is interesting and unusual enough to see a Jean-Claude Rouget horse in a claimer. (13) SPIRITINTHENIGHT takes a significant drop in distance and this could make all the difference. He is the choice ahead of the on-form (15) MALAAW who is ideally weighted under 53.5 kg. (11) SARSTEDT is on a hattrick and must be sseriously considered. Watch for (7) NEIGE ETERNELLE !

gre g Style Vendome - Kiva Des Aigles (Enrique)

4 8-0
 - 

Long-time maiden who finished third in his last attempt over this course & distance. Outside chance

Kyvon Des Aigles historical data/form

There is a lot to like about (1) ZAK who has been racing prominently in this division. He likes the surface and would cause a big surprise if not closely involved at the finish. But this is as tight as it gets and it may be best to keep a close eye on (9) ATEEM who won't be long before winning a race like this. (6) CHARNOCK RICHARD (5) LORRAYNIO and (7) GOLD LAKE are also in with lively chances.
