Top-rated (2) MORNING BASMA caught the eye on her comeback when a pleasing 3rd at Maisons-Laffitte over a similar trip (1400m) and with the expected improvement should be hard to beat. Rouget-trained (4) ELEVEN O TWO is rated to pose a threat though if race ready on her seasonal reappearance. Last-start winner (1) ARIFUSHI has a shout too despite top weight.

A full field of newcomers so a hard race to assess as none of these runners have any form to go by.

(2) CAPITAINE COOK is another bred to have serious means and must be respected having been supplemented to compete in this contest. (9) AL MARROUNA (11) BALLET ROMANCE and (5) SEACLIFF are others to make note of.

Tricky. (2) MAROBOB has shown encouraging signs of a return to form recently and further improvement should see her feature prominently. (8) FOR ME DAVIS went into the break in good order and resumed in similar fashion on her comeback. She should be competitive with improved fitness on her side. (7) HAPPY VALLEY can also stake a claim if not in need of the outing on her seasonal reappearance while last-start winner (1) PRINCESS BIANCA could have more to offer. (6) PAMPA BRIGHT is capable on her day and could surprise after needing her last start.

A five-time winning veteran who showed signs of a return to form last time. Must confirm

Green Saga historical data/form

Good race. (4) PARFAIT AVENUS renews rivalry with (6) ALTESSE THAIS having finished ahead of that rival in a similar contest at Nantes recently. Little separates the pair on that meeting but there is nothing to suggest that the tables will be turned here and the former is marginally preferred. Last-start winner (1) WIND SONG should also have a role to play despite top weight. Consistent (9) LINDA'S CAP will not be far off the mark either.
