Galileo colt, ran well enough in 1m maiden here in October on second outing under sympathetic ride once beaten. Retains plenty of potential going up in trip.

Interesting Teofilo colt out of a Montjeu mare who holds fancy entries in the Derby and Irish Derby still. Didn't achieve much in sole juvenile run at Dundalk, cheekpieces sported for return / turf bow.

Galileo colt did all bar win on debut at Navan (1m2f, yielding to soft) having seemingly taken a while for the penny to drop before rallying strongly. Strong contender to go one better for powerful trainer.

Galileo colt is a brother to three winners, including very smart 1m4f-1m6f winner Bondi Beach. One of three for the trainer, will need to go some to master stablemates with experience.

Teofilo filly, half-sister to two winners. Dam a sister to sprint winner. Does hold some interesting entries, including the Irish Oaks, but others preferred today.

High Chaparral filly and a half-sister to French Group 1 winner Cloth Of Stars. Well beaten in 1m Curragh maiden in July. Up in trip and should be more to come in time.

Betting

Forecast

Southern France (8/15), Cypress Creek (7/1), King D'Argent (9/1), National Security (10/1), Victory Salute (14/1), Make The Switch (14/1), Niku (20/1), Moktamel (25/1), Last Mystery (33/1), Miraculum (33/1), Union Gap (33/1), Stronghold (40/1)

Verdict

SOUTHERN FRANCE took a long time for the penny to drop on debut last month at Navan, perhaps not relishing the conditions underfoot. He flew home like the proverbial train for a narrow defeat in the end and, with that experience and better ground, should take some halting this time upped in trip. Stablemate Cypress Creek has improvement in him up in trip while King D'Argent is another capable of a step forward. Make The Switch and the selections' stablemate Victory Salute are amongst the lurking dangers new to the track.
  1. Southern France
  2. King D'Argent
  3. Victory Salute
