1.5pts win GREGORIAN 28/1 ( 3 firms and exchanges) Prix Du Jockey Club
1.5pts win AMARON 33/1 ( generally available) Prix Du Jockey Club

The form of the French 2,000 GNS seems to to have been overlooked by the market here and these two, who finished fourth and fifth at Longchamp, have live chances and represent cracking value at the odds available.

As is typical of alot of races over here they finished bunched in that event, but that does not necessarily dictate that the form will not work out. The German trained Amaron finished fourth on his first outing outside his native country, only half a length off the winner. He is consistent, enjoys ease in the ground and will not be far away in a race that his sire won.

Gregorian is also ideally suited by ease. After gamely winning a Newbury handicap he was pitted in at the deep end at Longchamp and finished one place behind Amaron, running as if this longer trip will bring about further improvement.
