Lightly raced French invader is by multiple Group One winning miler Medicean who has produced champions such as $3.3 Million earner Al Shemali and is out of a half sister to Group Three scorer Balakheri. Three-year-old was last seen when comfortably winning a Group Two event at Maisons-Laffitte over a mile and a quarter in July when defeating the well regarded Cognito and colt has now won three of his four lifetime starts. Colt may be at his best on slightly firm turf and is trained by Alain de Royer-Dupre who is no stranger to winning big races having won six French Derbies and two Prix de L’arc de Triomphes and runners he has shipped to race outside of Europe include Melbourne Cup winner Americain and Lashkari who won the Breeders’ Cup Turf in 1984. Runner has been forwardly placed early in his three victories and may be perfectly placed from the start here with Christophe Lemaire travelling for this one ride.
