A wide open handicap chase gets proceedings under way and many would have chances on their best form but the principals look to be Dragon King, River Mere and Measure Of The Man and the vote goes to Dragon King. The selection is from a yard in top form and has dropped to a lenient mark he will not mind the ground and he need only reproduce his latest second behind Karo De Vindecey would make him hard to beat. River Mere rates the main danger on his latest third behind In Discussion but he his fairly inexperienced for this type of affair and for that reason he is opposed. Measure Of The Man is another that could go well he showed improved form when second behind Saby last time but his best form is on very fast ground and for that reason he is oppose. Of the remainder Calon Lan has chances on his best form but he just gave there impression the handicapper had caught up with him last time when fifth behind. Chevalier Bayard and for the winner we return to Dragon King.
