A couple of these stand out from the rest. Influx won easily at Salon-De-Provence last week and should go well again despite facing a tougher task but MENSEN ERNST makes most appeal. A runner-up in this grade at Toulouse in March, today’s extra distance should suit the Rouget colt having landed a double at the track back in October and he gets the vote to return to winning ways. The remainder will do well to trouble the principals but Pilgrim posted a better effort last time and may prove best of them.
