CELESTIN is hard to fault on seasonal reappearance. He ended the previous campaign with a comfortable success in listed company at Toulouse and will be difficult to beat.
Delta Spirit was disappointing on first start of new season. but could improve for race fitness. Coronado Beach is looking for a three-timer after two wins at Deauville and Moshadid takes step up in class after his maiden success at Chantilly.
SIMEEN, who returns after a lengthy absence, remains unbeaten in two outings and caught the eye with a comfortable success at Clairfontaine. Bionic Woman produced a career best effort when finishing fourth in G1 Prix Marcel Boussac in October and a bold bid is anticipated upon return.

EDINA, is out of Epaulette, whose offspring often show plenty of speed and precocity, has a leading chance. Tokyo represents leading sire Dark Angel and will appreciate this trip, bold bid anticipated. Citadelle represents leading trainer J C Rouget and she could make an impact. Rose Gold could be one to consider for the each way play.
A race for newcomers so the market will be informative. UP AND GO, Dia De Muertos, Rubis Gold and Kalarina all make appeal on racecourse debut.
The well bred MARBLING has raced only once for a maiden second and should go well for Andre Fabre. Juliusjuliusson is also a maiden but has always presented as a horse with ability. Include. Ayaad, Spirit Intime and Crew Dragon are all last winners from late last year and interesting in this race.
Quality G3 event with many promising 3yr olds engaged. WOODED has two G3 placings to his name. Like many of his rivals is first-up with the Chantilly 1100m Listed contest in March providing many re-opposing contest.
The first three home in the race Wanaway, Abama and the Soumillon mount My Love’s Passion all have good claims. The most interesting runner is Mutual and is a winner of his past two to be progressive. There are other chances. Good race.
Good quality field. NADEEM ALWARD has been racing well this season and wasn’t disgraced in a Listed contest last time. This is easier. Wind Test can lead and is close to a win whilst Viscount Barfield is classy and first-up can run a bold race. Soho Starlight and Muttrah Fort are both first up and profile well to be in the mix of key chances.
SHAMS BRAZILERO is on a hat-trick and is a proven leader. Though up in grade is still a top chance. Loquen won his first race last start having worked up to that win. Can go on. Glicourt maintains a strong distance record and put in a good first up run last time. Parigote has been racing in top level handicap races then dropped in grade to win latest and this is no harder.
Noordhout can be considered and there are plenty of place prospects.
Plenty of chances. LIGHTOLLER rates a solid chance with placings last three over slightly further. Consider. Grand Secret is poorly drawn but managed a win two starts back and normally shows pace. Can be in the finish. For value consider Madison Vanzales running into a place without winning while Happy Dream could be a chance based on last start 1100m second after leading.
Place hopes include Dobby First and Gottingen.
