ADRIAN (1.00) took a step forward when winning at Mulheim in November. He had already shown plenty with a second at Cologne and is proven over this distance. Top rider Andrasch Starke is in the saddle.
Palao has a fitness edge on some of these thanks to a solid third earlier this month. He was third in a good contest last season and can figure in this company.
FERRAGOSTA (1.30) came back from a break to run a good third at Munich nine days ago. His best form has come over this trip and he should be in the mix.
Sasuka finished ahead of the tip last time but needs to improve after a 6lb swing in the weights.
QUEST THE MOON (3.30) is a Group 3 winner at best and was less than four lengths away from the high-class Sottsass when last seen at Longchamp in September. This sort of trip suits him well and he won a top contest here as a juvenile.
Durance has a fitness edge thanks to her close-up second at Hannover on comeback earlier this month. She stays well and has a couple of Listed wins on her CV.
Parlan made it a hat-trick of wins when scoring at Dusseldorf last time. This is much tougher but he’s in great heart and the trip suits.
