This Sunday, the female monsters of the French turf, Goldikova and Stacelita, will square off in Sunday’s Prix d’Ispahan (G1) at Longchamp over 1,850 meters. It is expected that 2010 Al Rashidiya (G3) winner Alexandros will join them, returning to the races following an unplaced performance in the Dubai Duty Free, well behind Al Shemali.

Only about three lengths behind the top trio, Team Valor primary Barry Irwin, quoted by the Press Association, reported that the Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown is a possible next target for his charge. A go over the 10 furlongs of the Arlington Million could follow that start. Click HERE for that story.
