10.20am Dax – A Group 3 winner at 2 for Charlie Hills, Mujbar only ran twice in the UK last year and was switched over the winter to Francois Rohaut.  He made a winning reappearance at Bordeaux last month and looks too good for this field.

10.50am Dax – Philippe Sogorb is operating at a 21% strike-rate this season and Idaho James should make a bold bid to give him another winner today.  He won in this claiming grade at Mont-de-Marsan in February, has since run with credit in handicap company and will appreciate the return to this level.  He has a good draw and won on his only previous start here.

RECOMMENDED BET: WIN DOUBLE @ 4.25-1 (Ladbrokes, Coral, WillHill, Skybet)
