Thursday also saw the draw made for Sunday's G1 Qatar Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly, with Jeff Smith's G1 2,000 Guineas fourth Ghostwriter (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) getting an inside post in two. In between the two ParisLongchamp conditions winners Sosie (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) and Look De Vega (Fr) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), the Clive Cox-trained G2 Royal Lodge S. scorer will at least have a tactical advantage in the 10 1/2-furlong Classic, with his trainer saying earlier this week, “He is very versatile and very balanced, I'm more than happy.”

Wathnan Racing's acquisition Fast Tracker (GB) (Churchill {Ire}), who jumped into the picture with a seven-length success in the track's Listed Prix de Suresnes earlier this month, drew stall five and the Henri-Alex Pantall-trained will have James Doyle on board for the first time. Andre Fabre's trio includes Sosie and Baron Edouard De Rothschild's G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains third Alcantor (Fr) (New Bay {GB}), who is re-opposed by Ballydoyle's Diego Velazquez (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) who was fourth in that ParisLongchamp feature. Alcantor is in seven, while Diego Velazquez will have to navigate a wide draw in 11.
