Ended 2021 on a high, winning Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp (2m, soft) by length from Skazino. Group 1 penalty and shorter trip are both reasons why it might be best to look elsewhere on this reappearance run.

Course listed winner who was having only the fifth start of her career when landing 1½m Group 1 at Ascot on British Champions Day in October. Lightly-raced profile provides hope for better again at 4.

Won Group 3 St Simon Stakes over C&D last autumn. Another solid effort over C&D when fourth in John Porter on reappearance. Likely to give another good account.

Forecasts

Foxes Tales (3/1), Scope (10/3), Eshaada (4/1), Ilaraab (9/2), Without A Fight (5/1), Outbox (11/1)

Verdict

In a good Group 3 FOXES TALES is selected to build on a sound reappearance run at Sandown and make the most of the weight he receives from last autumn's Group 1 winner Eshaada. Ilaraab has a series of very creditable efforts to his name at this venue and should also be thereabouts.
