It's a bit of a leap of faith to see Hamilton maiden winner Ayrad coming up trumps. The Great Gatsby has a better chance on his victory in the Dante at York last month but the last horse to leave these shores and win this was Shamardal in 2005. Godolphin are represented by the Andre Fabre-trained Earnshaw this year but he had no answer to today's likely favourite PRINCE GIBRALTAR in a Group 2 trial at Saint-Cloud. Jean-Claude Rouget's colt returned an impressive winner to add to last year's Group 1 success and is the one to beat despite the presence of French 2000 Guineas winner Karakontie. The latter just got the better of Prestige Vendome at Longchamp and should stay this longer trip. Free Port Lux has won a Group 2 contest but Gonna Run, Master's Spirit and Shamkiyr are all unknown quantities at this level.
