The Group One Prix Jacques le Marois looks a top class event this year and having looked through the field trying to get the favourite beat it has become a very tough task, with the Godolphin owned colt potentially a class above this field at a mile.

Coroebus for Charlie Appleby has been a superstar this term being unbeaten in both starts and landing back to back Group One events.

He started his career last term as a juvenile when winning on debut at Newmarket over a mile and then went to the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes over the same C&D where he threw the race away late on to Royal Patronage.

Rounding off last term he got back to winning ways in the Group Three Autumn Stakes, emphatically beating a good field.

Seen on seasonal debut this year in the Group One 2000 Guineas, he saw off stablemate Native Trail with ease to land the Classic event.

Sent to Royal Ascot last time out he went on to narrowly take the Group One St James's Palace Stakes on the first day of the festival, seeing off challengers from all angles.

It would have been interesting to see him against Maljoom, but with the Haggas horse not declared it leaves the rest of the field with a lot to do to get him beat in our eyes.
