The first of our two each way selections in the race is the Jean-Claude Rouget trained Makaloun for owners Aga Khan and this horse is thought of very highly in France.
The three year old son of Bated Breath has been seen six times during his career, winning all four of his first four starts, between 7, 8 and 9f.
Having landed Group Three and Listed events on both good and soft ground, he stepped up for his first Group One event over 10f in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud and was a close up third behind the smart Gear Up for Mark Johnston.
Always aimed to be a horse in his prime as a three year old, he was bought back this season at Chantilly over 9f and landed the Group Three Prix de Guiche.
That looked a perfect prep run on good to soft for the French Derby and sure to come on for the run he looks a big each way player for France.
Christophe Soumillon is the man you want on board in these types of races and he gets the mount on Sunday.
