Cirrus Des Aigles will prove to be back to top form in the Prix Dollar this afternoon at Longchamp

This campaign the seven-year-old has struggled  so far to regain his form of previous seasons. Last time out he finally got back to winning ways after a number of lacklustre performances, when he won a Group Three race at Maisons-Lafitte.

In the Prix Dollar (3.15) he will face stiffer competition, which will include the useful Planteur for Marco Botti and the Japanese raider Stellar Wind.  However, with the soft ground in his favour and a win under his belt he should bounce back to top form and see off his rivals on the way to another attempt at the Champion Stakes in a fortnight  at Ascot on QIPCO Champions Day.

Crockford’s Longchamp selections:

Nearly Caught (1.30), Mshawish and Fire Ship e/w (2.08), Riposte (2.40) and Cirrus Des Aigles (3.15)
