CARNIVAL ZAIN (2) showed winning form in 2019 and returned to action last time with a solid second putting him in the mix for this. TRIMLIGHT (5) is a more experienced runner but is another who knows where the winning line is whilst SPRING IS COMING (1) is one to consider after getting off the market last time out.

The course form of SMART WHIP (1) suggests he will go well here once again adding to his win last summer and good second up prior. SARENDAM (4) has some solid place form to his name at the top tracks in the country and if at best will be another involved in the finish. MARSHALL LESSING (2) put in a good run finishing second last time and can be considered alongside NABUNGA (3) who was second at Deauville in February and holds winning form also.

BOSQUENTIN (3) is clearly talented and capable of winning this given form in much higher grades. ELHO FAME (6) was a multiple winner in better levels of racing last year. Didn't disgrace herself returning recently and merits respect. GENTIANA BELLA (5) has to overcome a layoff but is capable if ready to go. Pornichet win under her belt late last year is noted. (1) COLOURS warrants consideration based off a Cagnes-sur-Mer success earlier this year.
