1300m – Turf

Amedras A six times winner, who drops in trip for this. A 1400m winner here back in April and has run consistently well since including a close Longchamp third over 1600m last out.
Anterselva Has failed to win in her last 13 starts but almost put that right last time when only narrowly failing to win a 1600m conditions event at Deauville. Effective at this shorter trip.
Antharis He is dropping in trip for this assignment. Briefly looked like winning a 1600m Deauville handicap last time, still running well in second.
Baileys Blues More places than wins with just two career victories – both over 1200m. Outspeeded in a 1000m Listed event at Chantilly in June.
Black Lives Matter Won a maiden over this course and distance last year, his only career victory so far. Plenty of disappointments since that win and a falling handicap mark is unlikely to be enough.
Indyco Had a winning spree earlier this year, with victories here and at Deauville. Still fairly handicapped.
Kiloecho Had a good spell in mid 2021 with three consecutive victories – all over 1200m. Some harder tasks since but fairly handicapped now, and not beaten far at Deauville last time.
King Gold Came from the back to run second in a G3 at Hamburg in July, though never looked like winning. Good placed efforts on his last two starts.
Lanaken No wins from three previous Longchamp runs but respectable efforts each time. Gained his third career win on his latest start when easily justifying favouritism in a conditions’ event.
Lily Rose Only win came at a minor track over 1950m on her career debut. But has been placed in her last five starts, twice in handicaps over this course and distance. One to consider.
Masterboy Has won three of his ten starts but probably best over a bit further than this, and well behind on his last two starts.
Millfield A seven-time winning veteran who has lots of Longchamp experience, justifying favouritism when winning a 1400m handicap here in April. Best on slow ground.
Ozan Two career wins from 15 starts, both of them coming over longer trips than this. Ran a good fourth in a handicap here last out.
Perl Never looked like winning a handicap here on her latest start, finishing sixth of seven. Won a Deauville handicap previously but this looks a stronger contest.
Regalien Just one win but plenty of places, including when twice not beaten far over this course and distance this summer. Has had a break since a less good run at Chantilly.
Schooner Ridge Won a handicap on very soft ground here last year. Has only raced three times this year, one disappointment but two solid efforts.
Simply Striking This tough gelding came close to winning a handicap over this course and distance last year with some other decent Longchamp efforts since. Struggled in a G2 in Germany latest.
Sirius Slew Did come close to a surprise win in a 1200m Chantilly handicap on his latest start, his best effort for some time. But he will need to do better again against stronger company here.
Torpen A six-time winner who has enjoyed success over this 1300m trip. Also comes here in winning form, showing a tough attitude to win a soft-ground handicap here last out.
White Platin Comes here in terrific form having won handicaps, two of them over 1400m here, on his last three starts. Chances again, especially if the ground is riding slow.
