Saint-Cloud Sunday Preview - 30/06/2019

1:00 - Art Du Val

Charlie Appleby is in a rich vein of form at the minute, particularly after the efforts of Blue Point at Royal Ascot last week, and could have another fine individual on his hands in the shape of Art Du Val.

This inexperienced three-year-old won on his racecourse at Sandown in August, because going straight into Listed company next time out, in which he was just pipped by Paul Cole's Duke Of Hazard.

Still progressing, he returned this season to win a Conditions Contest at Meydan in February and is ready to take things to the next level.

Every chance he can come through the Prix de Saint-Patrick over a mile as a better horse.

3:25 - Mehdaayih

The second high-profile race at Saint-cloud on Sunday is the Prix de Malleret over a mile-and-a-half for fillies, and Mehdaayih is well worth another go over this staying trip given her passage in the Invested Oaks.

Winning at Chelmsford and at the Roodee in the Cheshire Oaks put her into strong contention for the fillies Classic at Epsom, but she had a real nightmare in running and was blocked in at every gap.

She can confirm whether that was unfortunate and that does she does stay twelve furlongs with a victory here, as she looks to bounce back for John Gosden.

Her performance at Chester simply cannot be ignored, and should take advantage of the soft ground conditions over her rivals.

Big chance.

4:00 - Lah Ti Dar

Lah Ti Dar really did not enjoy her outing at Epsom in the Coronation Cup, and opted to skip the Hardwick Stakes at Royal Ascot in favour of a date in France.

This is the feature race on Sunday - the Grand Prix de Saint Cloud, a Group One over 1m4f for four-year-old's and above, and the filly owned by Lord Lloyd Webber has previously place twice at the top level.

She won on her return this season at York by a close margin and was expected to come on plenty, but never handled the track on the downs in Surrey when never getting closer than sixth.

Definitely capable of better, and we should see an improved display in this top field under the guidance of Ryan Moore for the first time.

4:35 - Headman

Our tips in France end with the Prix Eugene Adam, a Group Two over ten furlongs and the impressive London Gold Cup winner from Lockinge Day at Newbury takes all the appeal here.

Another absent from Royal Ascot, Roger Charlton will send this horse to France looking to build on that stylish display in the Berkshire handicap - which does usually provide plenty of winners throughout the season.

Proved he was a group horse with a narrow but game victory over Sinjaari and Andrew Balding's Good Birthday, and should now go onto bigger and better things - starting here.

Big player, and regular pilot Jason Watson goes over to take the ride.
