Icon Project has good chance in Listed class

PREVIEW: FRANCE, Tuesday

Longchamp: Prix de Liancourt (Listed) 1m2½f

ICON PROJECT (Brian Meehan/Alan Munro) has a good chance of success in Listed company in a 1m2½f event at Longchamp on Tuesday.

Having won her maiden in May, the daughter of Empire Maker was dropped in at the deep end when contesting the Ribblesdale, where she finished an honourable fourth to Michita. She then ran third in a Listed event at Newmarket, where she was beaten by subsequent Yorkshire Oaks runner-up Dar Re Mi.

Of her nine rivals in Tuesday's Prix de Liancourt, Andre Fabre's Listed winner Astrologie looks to pose the biggest threat.

On her latest outing she was fifth behind Dar Re Mi and has comprehensively beaten Vraiment Rouge and For Joy, who are also in the line-up.

Balladeuse was third in a Group 3 event in June but has not been out since, while Saturnine runs in Listed company for the first time but has not been out of thefirst four in six runs this season.
