The opening handicap hurdle at Auteuil is far from the strongest of contests for the grade, and it offers a good opportunity for Dinozaure to return to winning ways.

He ran away with the second division of a Quinte here in September and ran very creditably when fourth in a Listed handicap here in November, the form of which ties him in closely with Air Commodore.

He looked really in need of his reappearance run here at the beginning of March, when the cheekpieces he wore last season were left off (return today), and I think he has the potential to progress from his mark of 56.5 this year.

RECOMMENDED BET: 12.50pm Auteuil – Dinozaure each-way @ 14-1 (most firms)
