With the forecast ground at Longchamp, Iâ€™d be looking to take Battaash on here.
And Iâ€™d be looking no further than Glass Slippers who won this race by 3 lengths last year on ground described as â€śVery Softâ€ť. Battaash was a distant 14th in the race after being eased inside the final furlong.
Battaash has beaten Glass Slippers twice already this season, however she tends to improve as the season progresses and won the Flying Five at the Curragh nicely a couple of weeks ago.
Glass Slippers 2yo form - 36116 Glass Slippers 3yo form - 0524111 Glass Slippers 4yo form (so far) - 521
9/2 best available and a general 4/1 chance currently.
there must be more than a fair chance Battaash bypasses the Abbaye for the Breeders Cup sprint based on the quotes in this piece:https://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/battaash-camp-eyeing-breeders-cup-bid/
