Showed improved form on his second start on a different AW surface. Looks the type to do better in handicaps and may find a few too good again.

€110,000 son of Teofilo and half-brother to three winners. Made a promising debut and then was off for over a year before showing up for a long way following wind and gelding operations. Should improve for the run and a leading contender.

Cost 165,000 gns as a yearling and ran respectably on debut in testing conditions. Stable finally got an overdue winner at the weekend and he looked the type to improve considerably with experience.

Al Khazeem gelding who cost 70,000 gns as a foal and is from the family of a Group 1 winner in Hong Kong. Well beaten on debut and best watched.

Nicely-bred colt out of Farhh, picked up for 44,000 gns by connections. Looked to need the run on debut when slowly away, may need more time but can improve.

Son of Lope De Vega who cost 50,000 gns as a yearling. Stable not really firing at present and market should provide the best clues.

Cost 380,000 gns as a yearling and looks a likely type as a half-brother to some good types including Barsanti. One very much to note over a realistic distance on debut.

11/8

Closely related to Galapiat so will appreciate the extra distance following a decent debut over 1m2f. Was well fancied then but trainer's runners also tend to progress significantly for a run and has to be respected.

Betting

Forecast

Francophilia (11/8), Falcon's View (9/2), Pirate King (5/1), Brahms De Clermont (11/2), Flintrock (7/1), Roc Astrale (7/1), Sarim (16/1), Point Of Honour (16/1), Demophon (50/1), Khazix (50/1)

Verdict

Francophilia was well supported on debut but looked likely to improve for the run over this extra distance and should be in the mix again while Flintrock also looked the type to step up from the promise of his debut. ROC ASTRALE has had one start more but has shown up well in both and just emptied late after an absence in excess of a year and should make a bold bid. Brahms De Clermont is of obvious interest after showing progressive form over hurdles while of the debutantes Sarim really catches the eye and market support would be respected.
