1. QUEJO – Has started just twice and hasn’t done a great deal last start finishing tenth and beaten 24 lengths over 1100m at Dieppe. Needs to lift.
2. PEARL OF CHOP – Stepping out at this course for the first time. Last appeared when he finished second over 1525m at Montauban on June 5. Drawn to advantage and looks a solid chance.
3. MISTER KOOL – Stepping out at this course for the first time. Last appeared when he finished sixth over 1500m at Tarbes on May 12. Capable of a big finish so don’t write him off.
4. PRIMO VIOLINO – Last appeared when he finished fourth over 1100m at La Teste De Buch on June 15. An inside alley is a big advantage. Winning prospects.

11. OHEKA – Last appeared when she finished third over 1200m at Agen on May 9. Solid run last time and is a strong winning hope again.
12. MIND FLOWER – Form either side of a break has been average. Resumed last start and was beaten 4.5 lengths over 1500m at Tarbes. Hard to get excited about her chances.
13. ROSE DES SABLES – Fourth over 1000m at Angouleme four weeks ago. Not keen on her chances.
14. DAENERYS VILOTTE – Unraced filly by Law Deputy out of Tin Girl. Prefer to see how she performs.

SALARY BAY (10) enters calculations having won three times including by 1L in a 2100m claimer at Angers on her penultimate start. HAVANA SILK (7) recorded a 7.5L sixth in the 1600m Czech 2000 Guineas at Prague (Czech Republic). Consider.
