XAARIO represents leading connections. Expected to make a bold bid on racecourse debut. Donttellyourmother is out of stakes winning mare Madda’s Force.
Breeding suggests she could play a leading role. Imperial Beauty would have to be respected if subject to any significant support in the betting. Choco Charlie is by G1 winning two-year-old sprinter Myboycharlie who is strongly represented in this field.
SMART WHIP is nearing a victory after two consecutive placings. Resumes after a seven month break and can make a bold bid fresh. Viny chases a double after a narrow success on the AW at Deauville. Confidence will be boosted following that maiden success.
Cartes has been racing against better competition and could find the frame following a promising fourth at Compiegne. Mister Smart was a winner at Chantilly in February and rates well.

WESTEROS represents top connections and catches the eye as a potential debut winner. Leading chance. Redshank is one of three runners for trainer Andre Fabre. By Speightstown and expected to make an impact. Vasco Da Gama could be a nice prospect for leading owner. Betting will provide best guide. Singapor Rienta is by Cockney Rebel and conditions will suit on debut.
JOYOUS SOUNDS represents leading connections and has the potential to have an impact on debut. Perhaps is likely to be suited by conditions. By Lope De Vega and bold bid anticipated. Metaphore is one of two runners from Carlos Laffon-Parias training stable. Intello filly can show plenty of speed. Caline will appreciate distance on debut and could make the frame.
JAAYIZ was a multiple winner earlier in the season and has the potential to produce another success. Leading chance. Made To Order followed up a victory at Toulouse with a close fourth at Lyon la Soie. Consistent performer. Hertshaan has the advantage of a 1.5kg jockey claim.
Winner of a claimer at Cagnes Sur Mer in early February and can play a role. Bring The Action is well handicapped based on recent win. Stade Velodrome holds each-way claims with a low weight.
PRINCE HAMLET is well handicapped based on recent achievements. Finished runner-up over course and distance in latest and returns after a six month break. Leading chance. El Caliente has already claimed two wins from three outings in 2020. Must be respected despite top weight.
Arise was surprisingly disappointing on final start of previous preparation. Better expected upon seasonal return. Saga Timgad is a place contender after finishing third at Chantilly in February.
GLENORCHY is chasing a double after a strong victory over 1600m at Chantilly. Must be respected. Truco looks hard to fault on recent form. Claimed a success in a longer distance contest in October though drop in trip could be a small question mark.
ENZEL caught the eye with a very impressive wide-margin success at this venue in November. Proven over a similar distance and hard to fault. Dawn Intello justified favouritism on debut to score at Deauville. Returns after a break and may have improved further.
Alfareeq has progressed with each start and broke maiden on second time of asking. Interesting. Mare Australis is having first start for Andre Fabre after winning at Munich on debut.
VIENNE was impressive leading throughout and drawing clear to win over 1800 at Compiegne in October. Filly to beat. Gemcutter finished runner-up in same Compiegne race doing the chasing while Anobar is consistent but yet to win a contest.
Managed third in a Listed contest over 1600m at this venue last start. Irska surprised leading throughout to win at Chantilly making her only outing in March.
MADE TO LEAD was previously contesting G3 & Listed contests and finishing close-up. This race suits. Blue Blue Eyes has been well placed in his career and now drops to this level. Must be included. Oyambre is at a grade where he can be expected to perform and is consistent whilst Calvin is up in distance but racing favorably.
There are many chances. Top choice is YOUMDOR racing consistently. Started favourite past two, distance a slight query. The Manager likes to lead and is down in grade from past two starts. Should be prominent. Plenty of others to consider including Stelvio, Akyo and You Rock.
