MADOUSS is already a course and distance winner. Could be set to go close once more. Major player. Go Athletico wasn’t far away from Madouss on debut and has every chance of reversing the placings with improvement likely. Sure to go close. Golden Dream has placed past two outings. Though improvement is needed has displayed enough to date to suggest a place claim isn’t out of reach. Thousand Dreams ran well to be second last time. Chance.
PRINCE HAMLET is likely to improve on latest third at Saint Cloud. More is expected from this consistent performer however if taking to this trip is every chance. Nadeem Alward may relish a return to the journey and based on best could take a hand in this. Greyway is hard to ignore after latest back to back success. Improvement required but is a strong place chance.
PEACE MELODY claimed a promising second on debut. Drop in trip is a promising move and holds obvious claims based on sole start. King Robbe could be in the mix again having placed past three attempts. Indicated enough so far to suggest he can play a part here. Manarola was near the front throughout her debut effort and looks well placed to deliver another promising run. Rushdy and Shoal Of Time hail from powerhouse stables and have enough promise to deliver a solid challenge.
HAGAR BERE aims to make it back to back course and distance victories. Though this looks a harder race is every chance. Royal Ghost may improve for recent effort at Longchamp. With step up in trip likely to be of benefit won’t be far away. Ignore latest run of King Siyqouni as capable judging on best. Adelphie was a tad unfortunate when returning here. Upped in trip and with more luck could go close.
LOOTAH is a strong chance after two promising efforts in better company. Hard to see missing another victory here. Park Of Diamond has made the frame in latest outings including an encouraging second at this venue last time. Could be thereabouts. Gourmet may improve further having been lightly raced and is a leading prospect stepping back up in trip. Woot City finished second at this course last time and isn’t likely to be far away once again. Place claims.
GOLDEN RASH can build upon recent course success and has a strong chance of adding to that victory. Gourel holds solid claims based on best. If previous run is ignored will be in the mix. Sa Tuna might have to improve on recent placed efforts however has shown enough to suggest another good outing isn’t out of the question. Analeon produced an encouraging performance in Germany last time. With that form replicated in France could do better than some expect. Outside chance.
ART OF FUSION has been consistent. Difficult to see not going close. Saint Sacre may do better than latest fifth here and though this is another tough race can go close. Marano might not have fitness on side but if able to pick up where left off last season could play a major part. Darling De Loire hasn’t shaken off maiden tag as of yet however has indicated enough to suggest being capable of going close.
BARHEIN dominated in latest victory. This looks harder however the way he demolished the opposition that day suggests he’s capable. Wonder Boy may go close after solid second at Clairefontaine over 1600m. Drop in trip and also class could aid his chances. Likely to play his part. Carolingien doesn’t look the most obvious victor however finally returning to this 1350m trip is an encouraging sign Ready for a big run.
ZIVERI did well to claim a close third in a Class 2 event at Le Mans when last seen. Now in a lower grade holds an even stronger chance. Likely to go close. Achki will have an increase in weight to overcome however after a solid victory last time may deliver a serious challenge. Late Comer has been in the money more often than not of late and it’d be foolish to discount. Strong place chance. Barchetta is still a maiden though has given some decent performances in defeat.
