He can make amends and gets the vote ahead of the progressive (3) TESTA who seems well-treated first time in a handicap. Both (6) J'AURAIS DU and (7) OSTIA look like serious players as well.

(2) GEORGIA GAME was a very close fifth off that same mark in an identical race last time out and looks the one to be on in this last contest on the card. (4) MAZELTOF is definitely worth a race like this on a good day and should make amends after his last below-par effort. Anything can happen behind these two and (3) LUCE DES AIGLES and (1) GOUTTE DE LUNE look best of the remainder.
