(9) CLONDAW CIAN has taken particularly well to this course and looks very competitive off this mark. He can bring another success for UK in what remains a very open affair. The big French yards are all in the race with solid claims so it may be wise to have (1) STARKHOV (2) CURLY BASC (13) ES QUALITES and (6) MAT MAKER on the shortlist.

(2) ARBAROK did not fare up to expectations last time out. However he was an awesome winner first time out and is better be judged on that. The consistent (1) JOSHUA DREAM must have pleased his new connections at Auteuil and is expected to confirm today. Both (8) STAMINA CHOPE and (7) LUDELLA look capable of making the frame.

(9) CAPHARNAUM can easily be forgiven his last flop in a big handicap and faces a much easier task here today.

(5) VENDELOGNE sprang a surprise last time over this course and distance and will not be available at the same price today.

I Can Dream 8

gr f Montmartre - Inaya (Majorien)

Posted a good first-start effort in this division at Nantes in June but disappointed in two subsequent starts

I Can Dream historical data/form

Although he still is a maiden after five starts there is a lot to like about (1) SPEED'S ADDICT who has never been so close from opening his account. He is the highest-rated horse in the race and stays the trip so should definitely be a big player. A winner in this division last month over 1m7f (2) GLORIOUS SKY will lead the opposition with (4) SOUL SURVIVOR and (7) FAITH OF HOPE.

gre g Slickly - Evergrey (Verglas)

 - 

Just three wins from 63 starts but has been in good form throughout the summer and is not out of it

Ever One historical data/form

Unplaced in his last two starts in Quinte races (1) GONZALO is obviously far more effective at this level today and will enjoy the significant six pounds claim from Lea Bails. The on-form (10) CALCITE is overdue a third career success and should be a big player. (9) NATURE'S ORDER and (4) GOLEGA have the momentum and must be respected too.
