Sunday's swathe of European stakes action is headlined by ParisLongchamp's Emirates-sponsored G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains. Both Classics have attracted double-figure fields with 15 distaffers set for the Pouliches and a baker's dozen declared for the colts' equivalent.

Godolphin's G3 Prix Imprudence victrix Romantic Style (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}), drawn out wide in 14, heads a six-strong overseas challenge in the €550,000 Pouliches. She will be joined by G1 Moyglare Stud S. runner-up Vespertilio (Fr) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}) and GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf fourth Content (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). They have been allocated stalls 11 and eight, respectively. The home defence includes G1 Prix Marcel Boussac second Rose Bloom (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) in stall one and undefeated 'TDN Rising Star' Louise Procter (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) next door in two.

The €650,000 Poulains features a sextet of 'TDN Rising Stars' headed by Ballydoyle's G1 Vincent O'Brien National S. hero and likely favourite Henry Longfellow (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}). The Aidan O'Brien trainee is set to be partnered by Ryan Moore and has drawn stall six. Stablemate Diego Velazquez (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), with Christophe Soumillon booked, will exit gate 11. France's octet includes G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere third and fellow Rising Star Beauvatier (Fr) (Lope De Vega {Ire}). The Yann Barberot trainee will be loaded next door to Diego Velazquez in stall 10.
