Auteuil 3:15

I’ve had a look at the last 2 running’s of this and the winner of both of these So French won them pretty easily, and beat most of these running today. He has had a significant injury and is back here under a cloud. 3m6furlongs on Good-Soft ground in my mind is exactly what Djakadam wants. He stays forever but probably doesn’t really have a finishing kick over any trip. The way these races are run i don’t think he will need it, as his cruising speed may well be too much for most of these. I went through every horse with a chance to find some collateral form and eventually found in the the name of Alary. French chasers have always been behind the British and Irish  ones in my opinion.  There is some odd fences but nothing to silly, and Djakadam is a superb jumper in the main. Heart ruling head but so be it.
