WHAZE debuted in a decent maiden at Saint-Cloud earlier in the month and finished a respectable third without threatening the winner. This extra distance will suit Freddie Head’s colt and he has a fitness advantage over Zealandia. The latter also made his debut at Saint-Cloud in September last year when showing some promise while Ommeel was placed on the all-weather at Deauville in February and should go well. The Sea The Stars filly Moon Palace is a newcomer to note representing Francis Graffard’s yard.
