The Revenant Returns In Prix Edmond Blanc

While Britain's flat turf season remains low-key compared to its immediate neighbours, with no black-type action at the sole meeting at Musselburgh on Saturday, France takes up the mantle with the G3 Prix Edmond Blanc the feature at Saint-Cloud. Staging an early comeback in the mile contest is Al Asayl France's The Revenant (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who races under a six-pound penalty as a result of his exploits when winning the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. on Ascot's Champions Day card. That came just a fortnight after the chestnut had made an exaggeratedly belated seasonal debut in ParisLongchamp's G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein, so connections will be hoping he can fit more into his calendar this time around.

Interestingly, Andre Fabre saddles a quartet in opposition headed by Lady Bamford's Tropbeau (GB) (Showcasing {GB}), who took the G3 Prix de la Grotte on her 2020 bow at ParisLongchamp May 11 and steps back up to this trip having finished a close-up fourth in the seven-furlong G1 Prix de la Foret at that venue on Arc day.
