Down to seven runners in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere with the withdrawal of The Antarctic, but I like the chances of Pivotal Trigger, who could have the run of things in front.
He has improved with each of his four starts, winning a soft-ground maiden over this trip at Galway in late July, the form of which worked out really well.
He ran a really good race in defeat when third over a mile here on soft ground at the beginning of the month in the Group 3 Prix des Chenes, only giving way in the final half-furlong, and the drop back to this trip on testing ground looks a good move.
I’m expecting Shane Foley to ride him prominently once again and with his proven stamina, form on soft ground and very tough attitude, Pivotal Trigger has the attributes to run a very big race this afternoon.
1.15pm Longchamp – 1pt win Pivotal Trigger @ 17/2 (various firms)
