Verdict

Colombian has had four outings on slow ground in France since winning his maiden at Chester back in May and is a doubtful participant if the going stays fast. However, AL KAZEEM is fancied to land this even if the former takes part, as Roger Charlton's colt continues to improve and found only the progressive Green Destiny too good in the Group 3 Arc Trial over 1m3f here last month. French Navy had also been going the right way with a Group 3 victory at Goodwood before a disappointing effort in the Prix Dollar at Longchamp, while Barbican landed his hat-trick when stepped up to Listed company at Ascot last time. There could be more to come from recent Listed winner Mohedian Lady, while Beaten Up hasn't been tested in winning both starts to date, but he will be today.
