By Stephane Davy. The scheduled meeting Sunday at ParisLongchamp (R-1) will obviously be instructive. It will indeed be the opportunity to see at work several candidates for the always eagerly awaited Price of the Arc de Triomphethe first Sunday of October.
In the Prix Foy (Gr.II – 3rd race – 2:33 p.m.)the Australian star VERRY ELLEEGANT (306)who joined the workforce of Francis-Henri Graffard, in May, should show a better face than that unveiled in the Pirx Jean Romanet (Gr.I), this summer in Deauville. She will find on her way her cadets BUBBLE GIFT (305) and HIGH DEFINITION (304)displayed in this order, at the beginning of July in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (Gr.I) without forgetting the gifted IRESIN (303)3rd of the previous edition.
In the Prix Vermeille (Gr.I – 5th race – 3:50 p.m.)the seasoned GREAT GLORY (503), 2nd in the Prix de l’Opéra (Gr.I), last year, should once again shine, especially since his last two courses on this track at ParisLongchamp, this year, were crowned with victories. Her juniors THE PARISIAN (509) and AGAVE (507)respectively posted 2nd and 4th in the Prix de Diane (Gr.I), in June, will however stand in his way, like TUESDAY(510) Gr.I winner, this year at Espsom before finishing 4th in the Irish Derby (Gr.I), against the males.
In the Prix Niel (Gr.II – 6th race – 4:25 p.m.)the 3-year-old Nippon DO DEUCE (605), preceded by a flattering repitiation, will be the subject of much attention. It is indeed a rival to consider for SIMCA MILLE (603) and THE ASTRONOMER (601), displayed 2nd and 5th in the Grand Prix de Paris (Gr.I), this summer on the proposed route, as well as for LASSAUT (607), which concluded better than its 8th place in the Prix du Jockey-Club, at the beginning of June, before winning a Listed-race, more recently at Deauville.
