Southern France beats Draper’s Guild Image by www.healyracing.ie

Aidan O’Brien’s quest for a seventh Saval Beg Levmoss Stakes will rely on Capri and Southern France.

Both horses remain entered  in the Yorkshire Cup, also on Friday, but the Ballydoyle handler is looking to the Listed Leopardstown contest.

The pair returned to action in the Group Three Vintage Crop Stakes, with Southern France finishing third and Capri fifth at Navan.

“The plan is for both Capri and Southern France to head to Leopardstown,” said O’Brien.

“They are both entered in the Yorkshire Cup the same afternoon, but it’s more likely that we will keep them at home.”

Eight-time winner Dermot Weld, has left Falcon Eight and Make The Switch in the race, while Joseph O’Brien has entered Vintage Crop winner Master Of Reality.

Gordon Elliott could run Royal Ascot hero Pallasator. The Queen Alexandra Stakes winner will be having his first run since finishing unplaced in the Curragh Cup in early July.

“He’s in good shape, and I’m happy with how he has been going at home,” said Elliott.

“The plan is to get back to Ascot with him, and I’m keen to get a run into him, so Friday’s race looks ideal.”

The other entries are Kingsriver Diamond, Sam Missile and Twilight Payment.
