James Doyle is in action at Saint-Cloud on Friday with promising rides for Charlie Appleby and Ed Vaughan.

Sea Of Class's rider, who had to give up rides on Thursday after feeling unwell, is expected to be fit to partner Godolphin’s Mythical Magic in the Listed Prix Matchem (1.35) and Dubai Dominion for Vaughan in the Group 3 Prix Thomas Byron (2.05).

Dubai Dominion finished runner-up in the Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster’s St Leger meeting and connections are hopeful he can go one better this time.

“We felt the drop back to seven furlongs at Doncaster was the way forward,” Vaughan said. “Physically he’s developed a bit more since then. He’s a very good horse.”

East looked a nice prospect when making a winning debut for and Kevin Ryan and Kevin Stott
East, who represents Kevin Ryan, made a winning debut at Hamilton on soft ground last month and, while this represents a significant step up in class, connections are hopeful of a big run.

“She was green early doors at Hamilton, but her class took her through the race and she won cosily,” Adam Ryan, assistant to his father, said.

“She’s shown us plenty at home and we feel we’re going to France with every chance.”
