Illustration was pulled up on debut when favourite at Moulins, so better is expected and she likely to show more. Son Of Rajsa failed to make an impression on first racecourse start at Angouleme. May progress with the switch to jumps. Mystical Night fell on seasonal reappearance and may bounce back.
FALDEX was a promising third on debut at Saint Brieuc over 2400m in March and is open to further improvement on hurdling debut. He is a leading chance for sure. Sin Del Ria caught the eye with a fifth at Machecoul on the flat and will progress for the experience. Pharaon is progressing with each career start. Last seen finishing fourth at Saint Brieuc and may break through over obstacles. Best Story is a first race starter. Expensive purchase at Arqana and might make an impression.
LIPSTICK is chasing a maiden win after nineteen career starts. Plenty of placings to his name and must be considered. Power Life was a winner at Amiens two back and ran below-par in a handicap subsequently. There’s potential in him. Dylaban may take advantage of a low draw and has a place chance.

Ucel finished mid-field at Longchamp upon return after a short break. Expected to go closer and might improve for the run. Convicted is chasing a double after a success over this distance and is a proven contender. Qatar Spirit holds each way claims.

Wally broke through for a maiden victory two back and disappointing in G3 company last time. Will appreciate return to this level. Derbysim is a place contender.
