The son of Verglas was a recent horse in training purchase and he will make his first start for us in this mile Group 1.

Vert De Grece had good form for his previous yard in Ireland, finishing second to subsequent Group 1 winner Gleneagles in the Group 2 Futurity Stakes at The Curragh.

Roger has been pleased with his training since his joined us and we are hopeful for a bold showing on Thursday.

Roger said: "Vert De Grece goes to France in good form. He has been training nicely and a repeat of his second to Gleneagles would see him in with a good chance."

Umberto Rispoli takes the ride and nine juveniles have been declared.
