"Hi Royal is developing very well physically for the second half of the year. William Buick rides because James Doyle is in Germany."

In the previous year's Marois, the competition concluded in a close manner

Last year's Marois saw a tight finish, with the top three contenders separated by merely half a length. Both Light Infantry and Erevann seem poised to challenge Inspiral once again, hoping to reverse their positions. Meanwhile, Big Rock aims to bolster Christopher Head's impressive track record in Group 1 events.

Onesto, last season's Grand Prix de Paris victor, has remained absent from the racing scene since his unfortunate seventh-place finish in the Japan Cup. The possibility of his long-awaited return is under consideration.

Despite Onesto's recent setbacks, trainer Fabrice Chappet leans towards reuniting the horse with the track, this time over a mile. Chappet withdrew Onesto from the Group 3 Prix Gontaut-Biron over a mile and a quarter on the same day, indicating a preference for the shorter distance.

Within the lineup of 11 contenders, Chappet has two entries, including Jean Prat winner Good Guess, who is set to participate in what traditionally stands as the month's highlight at Deauville.

Among the participants, the victors of the French and German 2,000 Guineas, Marhaba Ya Sanafi and Angers, are poised to make their presence felt. Additionally, Andre Fabre might field Godolphin's Prix Rothschild runner-up, Life In Motion.
