Rock Or Bust historical data/form

Trainer David Smaga has a strong hand in this line-up with both (14) FIVE ICE CUBES and (3) EL MANIFICO. The former was a close second to the latter over course and distance at the end of May. He jumped off stall sixteen that day and did not have the best of run. He was caught late by stablemate (3) EL MANIFICO but with a better draw and a six pounds advantage there is not doubt he should reverse the form.

(5) MELICERTES was far from disgraced in the G.III Prix Paul de Moussac at Chantilly. He faces an easier task today and can get back in the winners enclosure. (1) PRICE RANGE was narrowly denied in an identical race over an extended nine furlongs trip in his last run and looks the biggest danger to the selection. (4) AIR DANCE and (3) ER FAINA are two more for the shortlist.

Palomba historical data/form

A good third in the Group I Prix Marcel Boussac last year (1) STAR TERMS has probably not fared up to expectations since then. She has never run beyond 10f and has a lot of question marks. So it may be safer to go the way of the well-regarded (3) EBONY whose only flop so far happened in the French Oaks. (2) PRINCESSE MATHILDE and (4) PSARA complete the pick.

(6) JUNINHA won her only race off that same mark just a year ago and fuly reassured in her last outing at Craon. She is back on the right path and is a tentative choice to record a second career victory. (3) PEACEFUL CITY is as good as ever and it would be risky not to have her on the shortlist despite the rise in the weight. (5) CHANGOURO BASC is not devoid of ability and can make the frame at a nice price.
