Beauvatier is clearly a smart colt having gone a perfect 4-4 to this date. He was expected to win last time being sent off 1/4 though and there might be value in opposing with ROSALLION. The latter was so impressive at Ascot and even though things didn’t go to plan in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster last time I can see him bouncing back here. The drying ground should be ideal and he is still armed with a lot of potential.
Beauvatier does look the obvious danger but don’t rule out a big run from Unquestionable as I’m confident he is better than what he showed behind Bucanero Fuerte last time and he is quite a big price under Ryan Moore.
I’m really looking forward to seeing OPERA SINGER in this and she is one of my strongest bets on the card. She absolutely bolted up at the Curragh last time and is now a perfect 2-2 over a mile. She is improving with experience and if stepping forward again will likely be the one they all have to beat. I thin the fact she is favourite over Darnation says a lot.
Darnation herself has been very impressive beating Carla’s Way at Goodwood which has been franked since and then following up at Doncaster. She is clearly a smart filly but looks best on a softer surface and the ground will be drying out all the time which must be against her.
Time for the Arabian World Cup and the winning machine AL GHADEER should have these covered. He has 3 Group 1 victories to his name already and it is hard to see how he doesn’t go in again under Soumillon. He is all the rage in the betting and really should be capable of justifying favouritism once more.
Ch’ezza is also a useful colt and he could easily give the stable a 1-2 here. Jim Crowley saddles Moshrif but he looks to have a bit to find to get seriously competitive. Al Doha arrives in form and might be value to rattle the frame.
Time for the big one now and I’m confident the unbeaten ACE IMPACT can make it a perfect 6-6. He tackles his elders now and goes up to a mile and a half for the first time but I actually think that will bring out further improvement. With the ground drying out all the time he should be able to leave them standing with his potent turn of foot and I find him very difficult to oppose.
Hukum is an extremely talented horse and in the weeks leading up to this race he was definitely going to be my selection but with the ground drying out rapidly I think that has to go in the favourites advantage and that has ultimately swayed my decision. I’d still like to see him run well. Westover has been mega consistent and also looks nailed on to be involved in the finish.
The way LUMIERE ROCK won at the Curragh last time was mightily impressive. He had been hinting at winning a decent pot for a while and could really kick on now. I thought he’d be shorter than 6/1 so I was pleasantly surprised to see that as you can back him each way at that price. He will go hard and it’s going to take a good one to peg him back.
I think the only horse capable in here would be Blue Rose Cen but his trainer said she had already had a long season before that latest defeat and she is out again here which would have to be concerning. Al Husn has a bit to prove off the back of that last run but could still be quite interesting.
I would love to see HIGHFIELD PRINCESS back to her best and win this. She wasn’t at her best at the Curragh last time but her form before that winning easily at Goodwood and then finding just Live In The Dream too strong at York stands out and she is sure to go close. She is a very talented filly on her day and it is no surprise to see her top the market.
Moss Tucker impressed finishing in front of the selection last time but he was only fifth in this last year and might struggle to back that up. White Lavender was 3 lengths behind the selection at Goodwood but might be a lively price to run a big race.
The likeable KINROSS won this last year and has looked better than ever this season winning cosily at Goodwood and then following up at York last time. He arrives at the top of his game again and it would be good to see Frankie Dettori in the winners enclosure at Longchamp for possibly the last time. He is sure to be popular in the betting so if you can get Even money I’d suggest taking that now.
Sauterne beat Big Rock here last time and this Kingman filly looks the obvious threat to the favourite. Cachet didn’t shape badly on reappearance and if stripping fitter from that could also be a player but enough to find with the selection.
This is probably the toughest race on the card so a tentative vote goes to TREMBLANT to run a nice race. This Shamardal colt won at Dauville and then wasn’t disgraced in third last time. If getting back to his best I think he is a decent bet to hit the frame and he should run well.
The danger is likely Wonder Boy who has won 2 of his last 3 and on his best form definitely has an obvious chance of winning this. Of the rest White Platin also arrives with confidence high and could have a good chance of landing a place in an open race.
With the promise of more to come back up in trip MONEYMAN looks worth chancing in the Longchamp finale. He was only a length and a half behind Bevan last time and also his reappearance fourth has worked out well too. He likely can build on both of those runs and should be going close.
Lovely Diamond was denied the hat-trick last time but has Soumillon up and can also go very well. Everillo has won his last two and will likely be sent off favourite so is also feared.
