Teikei historical data/form

Some late developers in this contest. (5) DARIYMA is probably one of the most interesting on paper and can be slightly preferred to (10) TEIKEI whose Group II-winning dam finished a game second in the 2014 Prix Vermeille. Both (7) IRREPRESSIBLE and (8) TENDANCE are well-related too and must be worth a look in.

Luisa Pola historical data/form

(1) CAPE GENTLEMAN posted a convincing first-start effort at Clairefontaine and looks the one with most potential among those who have already run. However it may be best to keep a close eye on (6) VICTORIA PEAK who was well-supported (6/1) in her only start back in April. (3) FAZILA and (5) IDOLES DES JEUNES should be given some consideration too.

Goldika historical data/form

(7) EXCLUSIVITE has improved nicely with each start this year and looks the one to be on. She gets a seven pounds allowance from young partner Alexu Pouchin and that should be enough to get the job done. (5) GRACE SPIRIT seems limited in terms of stamina but should stay the seven furlongs trip. (8) DESIDERATA and (6) VIDA PURA enter the equation.

(7) MISS TICHE has been very consistent in the maiden division so far and with a five pounds allowance added can possibly go off the mark on her first start in a claimer. (4) GLORY MAKER disappointed in a much better race at Marseille-Borely and is also interesting first-time in a claimer. (3) GET SET and (2) BIG BOSS MAN could also be worth some consideration.

Sikandari historical data/form

The lightly-raced (6) LOUIS went close in his last two starts in this division and is likely to be a major contender once again. He already won a race at the venue last year and he ticks many boxes. (8) HAKY ran a big race on re-entry and would have probably finished much closer had his jockey ridden him with more confidence. (11) AS DES FLANDRES is a remarkable performer in this class of event and deserves the utmost respect.

Quibello historical data/form

Although he is not the most reliable horse in the race (1) LINARDO is certainly the one with most ability and is definitely worth a good bet. In case the selection happens to run below-par (3) GOLDEN RASH and (8) WAHIB look the best alternatives for gold. The consistent (9) DRUPE is from a hot yard and should not be too far off at the finish.
