Aidan O'Brien can choose from Adelaide, Geoffrey Chaucer and Giovanni Boldini in the French 2,000 Guineas (Poule d'Essai des Poulains) at Longchamp on Sunday.

Giovanni Boldini has the best form in the book after he was just denied in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, but the other two possible Ballydoyle representatives are still unbeaten.

Richard Hannon's Shifting Power still holds an entry after he finished fourth behind stablemate Night Of Thunder in last Saturday's 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket. Powerful Owners Qatar Racing could give End Of Line (Andrew Balding), God Willing (Ed Dunlop) and Lat Hawill (Marco Botti) the chance to shine.

John Gosden's unbeaten colt Muwaary is also in contention while Karakontie is one of the leading challengers from the home team, with Galiway a worthy ally for Andre Fabre, who could also run Godolphin's Decathlete.

The well-regarded Kiram and Salai could both represent Jean Claude-Rouget.

Spanish speedster Noozhoh Canarias has been given an entry in the Darley July Cup over six furlongs. The front runner lost little in defeat when sixth, beaten just over four lengths, in Saturday's 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket over a mile.
