3 FAVORITE RUNNERS based on the LIVE ODDS

Welwal GB

Showed a good attitude to narrowly win the G3 Prix de Fontainebleau over course and distance last-time out. Open to progress and not entirely ruled out for a top yard.

Scherzo FR

Most of his racing in Doha (Qatar) of late and this looks a tough assignment on stable debut.

Finished fourth behind Welwal in the G3 Prix de Fontainebleau over track and trip last outing. Needs to find improvement.

Nirliit FR

Just prevailed in the Listed Prix Aymeri de Mauleon over this trip at Toulouse recently but this represents a whole different task. Hard to recommend.

Making Moovies IRE

Could sneak into the frame if building on his close third in the course and distance G3 Prix de Fontainebleau recently.

Nesr Shalghoda GB

7L to find with Rock Boy on his fifth in the G3 Prix Djebel over 1400m at Deauville last outing. Cannot enthuse on that form.
Owner: E Elhrari
Prize Money: €36,900

7 (4)
Modern Games IRE

This has clearly been the target for some time and it was hard not to be impressed with his 1.5L success in the G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar (USA) last November. Looks the one to beat for a yard who have made an excellent start this year in the three-year-old division.
Owner: Godolphin
Prize Money: €485,023

1st

8 (1)
Tribalist GB

0.75L behind Lassaut when runner-up in a Class One conditions event. Remains open to progress and hard to dismiss for a yard that have won this twice in the last three years given a low draw may prove advantageous.
Owner: Godolphin SNC
Prize Money: €35,225

M 3/58.0 M Barzalona
A Fabre

The Acropolis IRE

Should strip fitter for his recent second in the Listed Ballylinch Stud 'Red Rocks' 2000 Guineas Trial Stakes over 1400m at Leopardstown (IRE). Trainer has an exceptional record in this race and he looks set to go well.
Owner: Magnier/tabor/smith/weste

10 (3)
Lassaut FR

Made it two wins from three starts when snugly beating Tribalist by 0.75L in a Class One over course and distance. Yard won this in 2017 and 2018 and he must be included from an excellent draw.
Owner: Riviera Equine/haras D'etreham

Claymore FR

Came up against English G1 2000 Guineas runner-up Native Trail when second in the G3 Craven Stakes at Newmarket (UK) on his second career start. Fascinating runner but may have appreciated soft ground and has been drawn widest of all.
Owner: Mme M Slack
Prize Money: €25,899

Safely accounted by Lassaut and Tribalist over course and distance last outing. Impossible to recommend.

Ancient Rome USA

Disappointing when only sixth behind some of these in the G3 Prix de Fontainebleau over course and distance on reappearance. However it would be no shock were he to take a major step forward and is hard to rule out for a yard with an excellent record in this race.
Owner: M Tabor
Prize Money: €178,770

Rock Boy FR

Remained unbeaten when winning the G3 Prix Djebel over 1400m at Deauville on reappearance. Interesting contender from an each-way perspective.
Owner: Team Calas
Prize Money: €61,500

15 (14)
Bayside Boy IRE

High-class two-year-old who was last seen finishing a solid 1.75L third in the G1 Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes over this trip at Doncaster (UK). By no means dismissed although this draw may make life tougher.
Owner: Teme Valley/ballylinch St
Prize Money: €184,613

R Varian
515 213p3p1p2p1p 18.0 12.0

Tumbler FR

Fourth in the G3 Prix La Force on his second start but was only workmanlike when winning a Class Two conditions race at Fontainebleau. Probably needs to find improvement in first-time cheekpieces.
Owner: Wertheimer & Frere
Prize Money: €35,500

Racing and Sports

A big field for this renewal of the G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains where the draw and pace may prove a key factor. Everything looks to have fallen into place for MODERN GAMES (7) who could hardly have wished for a better draw in stall four. This has clearly been the target for some time and it was hard not to be impressed with his 1.5L success in the G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar (USA) last November. Charlie Appleby has made an incredible start to the season with his three-year-olds and he looks the horse to beat. Andre Fabre has an excellent record in this race and he saddles both TRIBALIST (8) and ANCIENT ROME (13). The former is seemingly the choice of Mickael Barzalona and is just preferred of that pair. LASSAUT (10) is interesting following a course and distance success over Tribalist latest while UK raider BAYSIDE BOY (15) is of note.
