Formscan - A winner here earlier in the season, IVANOF (11) has one race in him since the spell, is barefoot for the occasion and, with Eric Raffin reining, will not be easily bested. IGO CLEA (10) raced better here last time than the result would imply and, with more luck in running, can set the record straight. IMPERIAL COGLAIS (3) was surprisingly out of sorts at Laval but has previously won under these conditions and must be respected. Runner-up on 4 successive occasions this term, ILONA DES MOYEUX (8) steps up in category, is just unshod in front this time, but is tenacious enough to finish in the mix.
