TESTON (2) returns to French soil after a very solid winning performance at Doncaster. Likely to improve resuming and is the one to beat. KOURKAN (3) can be forgiven his latest effort after receiving a poor draw. Will appreciate this trip and looks a danger. ALEXANDER JAMES (1) raced at Royal Ascot. Latest run can be ignored and fitter this time around holds place chances. FEATURING (9) needs to improve though a recent success gives her an each way opportunity.
