Pont Alexandre comes into this race with a perfect record with 3 wins out of 3 races and is well fancied for the win here. Most recently Pont Alexandre won impressively at Leopardstown. The New One is the next nearest challenger in the betting and has a lot more experience than Pont Alexandre. The New One finished 6th at Cheltenham last year but has since performed very well with 4 wins and a second place, including a win at Cheltenham in October. The New One is probably a better choice if you want to back a favourite here.
Taquin Du Seuil also has good experience and has performed well when run in the UK with wins at Newbury and Sandown in December. Taquin Du Seuil likes the heavy going so odds will shorten if the weather is favourable for this horse. Rule The World does not have a lot of experience but has ran well at this distance on heavy going of late. Chatterbox is inexperienced but has 3 career wins to date but will step up to this distance so is a bit of an unknown.
Puffin Billy will step up to this distance after running 2m 1f in the past.
WinDrawWin Prediction - The New One to Win. Taquin Du Seuil to Place.
