With Peter Bowen in great form at present, Jacquemart Colombe is selected to get the better of French Executive and Sunday Habits in the finale. Jacquemart Colombe has a fitness edge over his rivals, having already had four outings this term. The seven-year-old was pulled up on his second British start at Newton Abbot but made up for that effort by outstaying his rivals on a return to the west-country track in August. He was then given a break until reappearing in a decent class B contest at Chepstow in which he was sixth, and that form should really be enough here. French Executive is a course and distance winner, but like El Hombre Del Rio and Smarty, has an absence to overcome. With that in mind then, the biggest danger to the selection may turn out to be Sunday Habits who goes well here and who won unchallenged from out of the handicap on his last visit in September. Jacquemart Colombe can prove the answer from the top of the handicap.
