Thursday's G1 Grand Prix de Paris at ParisLongchamp has attracted a tight field of six, with Flaxman Stables' supplemented Piz Badile (Ire) (Ulysses {Ire}) bringing the G1 Irish Derby form into play in what should prove one of the key pointers to the course-and-distance Arc. His G2 Prix Hocquart-winning relative L'Astronome (GB) (Frankel {GB}) is in the line-up for Al Asayl France and Francis-Henri Graffard, while KHK Racing's June 15 G2 Queen's Vase winner Eldar Eldarov (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and the Nas Syndicate and the O'Callaghans' G1 Prix du Jockey-Club runner-up El Bodegon (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}) make up the British contingent. 'TDN Rising Star' Onesto (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) and Haras De La Perelle and Stephane Wattel's G3 Prix du Lys scorer Simca Mille (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}) complete the line-up in a thriller for the Fete Nationale Francaise.
