2:15 Paris Longchamp, 15th May – Essai des Pouliches (French 1,000 Guineas)

This looks a much more difficult puzzle to solve than the Colts race and a case could theoretically be made for all 15 Fillies who go to post, but much like the Colts race, a low draw is crucial. There is nothing better than Stall 1, so we are delighted to see that Rosacea has landed the plum stall. With the English Guineas winner Cachet drawn out in stall 10, she is going to need to expend some early energy from there if she is to repeat her all the way heroics from Newmarket and given the record of British and Irish horses in this race (just 1 winner in the last 10 years from 33 runners) she is worth taking on.

At the time of writing this, the Stephane Wattel yard have had 2 winners from 8 runners so far this week and their stable star could round of a superb 7-days for them on Sunday. The winner of 4 of her 5 career starts, including over this course and distance in the Prix de la Grotte last month, she has many of the attributes needed for a race like this. She is tough and finds well when asked for maximum effort, which could be crucial in a race that is likely to be a strongly run affair. She holds entries in both the Prix Saint Alary and the Prix de Diane, which would suggest that she is likely to stay further than the mile, which should mean she is doing her best work at the finish on Sunday, and she looks certain to go well.
