ARIANE NOPOLIS won in the French provinces in June before being sold out of Guillaume Macaire's yard. Now with Gordon Elliott, it will be disappointing if she can't defy her penalty in this. Chasse En Mer also carries extra and has a similar profile to the selection. Caroline Bailey's filly looks the main danger as Nellie Forbush looked in need of a step up in trip when second to Mixed Message at Wetherby last week. It will be a surprise if any of the others, including the two newcomers, get involved.
