Brits take French test
Noel Quinlan's Lewisham and James Given's Jadanna form a strong raiding party in the Prix Eclipse at Chantilly on Friday.
Lewisham is surprisingly still a maiden after five starts but has run well in several Group races, including when narrowly denied in the July Stakes by Alhebayeb.
Jadanna won the Hilary Needler at Beverley earlier in the season and finished third in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot.
"It's the first time he'll have had the soft ground he wants since the July Stakes," said Quinlan of Lewisham.
"I just hope he holds his form because at this time of year you can never be sure.
"It looks the right sort of race, there's a couple with similar form to him but the rest look weak enough.
"He's in the horses-in-training sale so hopefully he'll put up a good show.
"James Given's filly might be the one to beat as he supplemented her."
Given has no fears over the testing ground for Jadanna.
"She's only disappointed once really, at Goodwood, but in the end she wasn't disgraced," said Given.
"I always feel that Royal Ascot catches up with them at some point so we gave her a break and she came back to be second in a Listed race, where I thought she was unlucky.
"She didn't quite handle the dip at Newmarket in the Cheveley Park, but in the end she was only beaten three and a bit lengths.
"She came out of that well, so I'm looking forward to it.
"She handled heavy on her debut at Pontefract and it was soft when she was third in the Cherry Hinton, so that won't be an issue."
