All horses are having their first start in a race where the market will be the best guide. Maxime Guyon rides PRINCESSE DE SABA and Pierre-Charles Boudot is aboard My Classy Lady. Maybe also consider Mearas Style and Black Mimi.
Good competitive race with plenty of chances. SAN FABRIZIO has raced on the speed in both contests to date and is ready to win. Al Khamsin was the front-runner in both outings to date and although without a recent run has his chance. Silver Schnok delivered a course and distance victory on debut and then ran a solid race at Longchamp in October. Also consider Grey Mystere and French Aseel.
PAROUSIA is a Longchamp 1600m maiden winner last October and if fittness can be trusted for seasonal reappearance here might prove the answer. Barchetta has placed form going back including over course and distance in March when beaten a nose. This is good form for this race. Synchrone has two placings in 1600m handicaps from last year but disappointed first up this campaign. La Fibre is consistent and may fill a place whilst Press Officer is an outside chance.
PEDRO DEL RIO was beaten a nose in a similar race last start and looks the one to beat. Raise The Stakes managed a close up third to Pedro Del Rio in latest. Must be included. Dark Road has put in two good runs and can be considered each-way. Enjoy The Silence is hard to catch but this is his preferred distance. Silver Poker may fill a placing.
Good race with promising horses engaged. LOOTAH has been well placed and was a narrow winner here last start. This race is a logical progression as it is for Hellenistique who is also seeking a hat-trick. Should be an interesting duel between these two. Next best is Loquito who has been impressive in past two runs at Cagnes. May surprise. Adelphie can go on following maiden win at this track.
SASSANDRA trained by Jean-Claude Rouget and placed on all three race starts is taken to open her account. Victim Of Love delivered a much improved third last time and continues to head in the right direction. Gladys Senora was promising enough at Deauville in November and may go well. Night And Day should not be dismissed whilst Best Step may improve.
SALESMAN has started favourite in all three races to date and hinted promise on his debut at Compiegne. The Andre Fabre-trained Dubawi colt makes most appeal. In Swoop is an interesting debutante trained by Henri Graffard with Pierre-Charles Boudot riding. Epic Tale was a promising third on debut at Chantilly in March over 1900m and might be able to progress. Both Stranger and Litigator have shown enough to be considered.
SKYWARD looks the horse to beat with three victories from as many runs already, including last time a St Cloud Listed in September. Top run expected. Pappalino was a solid third in March G3 at St Cloud and can go forward. Monsieur Croco has a good first up record including a Listed 2100m win last September. San Huberto is a course and distance Listed winner who was promising last season.
BLUE DIAMOND is going well over this trip with a win and placing in stronger Compiegne races. Dandy Place is in great form winning his past three after setting the pace. Upped in weight again but if given an easy run in front may prove hard to run down. Restless delivered a solid second at St Cloud last start and could go on again. Both Pont Au Change and Sadarak may also be considered.
FAVROS has been finishing just behind the placegetters in similar races over this distance. Kenchope is ready to win again following his last start third. Darling De Loire ran a much improved third and could go forward again whilst Scottish Sun was racing well earlier in the season before disappointing past two. Could improve.
