FAKIR D'OUDAIRIES' Arkle second received a huge boost when Put The Kettle On made a winning return and this classy 5-yo is taken to follow suit in a fascinating Grade 2. Cash Back could prove a formidable opponent, particularly if getting his own way in front, while the likeable Notebook can't be ruled out.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Fakir D'oudairies (Fr), 10/3 Notebook (Ger), 25/1 Djingle (Fr), 15/8 Cash Back (Fr)
