(2) COMEKEN is far more effective at Clairefontaine than he is at Auteuil and it is easy to see him make amends after his recent modest effort at the Parisian venue. (3) SAINT JULIAN is consistent over both hurdles and fences and looks interesting trying the claiming division. (1) COCOLEGUSTACHOCHO seldom disappoints in this division and must be monitored.

Macaire's pair (3) PANOLETA and (8) GARDENIA DEL are next best.

(3) ANGE DE JUILLEY was an eye-catching third first time out at Saint-Malo and could pose the biggest threat to the selection.
