Formerly trained by Andre Fabre in France, REPERTOIRE hasn’t raced since October. But he’ll still take the beating on his debut for new connections if running anywhere near a provisional rating of 96. Moonbootz will take advantage if the former fails to live up to expectations as he’s gone close over track and trip on a couple of occasions but Inexplicable and George Edward have shown little so far.
