Cologne is the focal point of the next European Classic action on Monday, with the G2 Coolmore St Mark’s Basilica German 2000 Guineas hosting the unbeaten Maigret (Ger) (Counterattack {Aus}) and a pair of British raiders in Devil’s Point (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) and Ten Bob Tony (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}). While the former looked the best of his generation at around this trip when winning Krefeld’s 8 1/2-furlong G3 Dr Busch-Memorial last month, the foreign contingent have been mixing it in the big time with Ten Bob Tony taking part in the G1 2000 Guineas.

Darker prospects are the course-and-distance Hein Bollow-Memorial first and second Iron Man (Ger) (Tai Chi {Ger}) and Penalty (Ger) (Frankel {GB}), with the latter two kilos better off for a 1 1/4-length defeat.

At Saint-Cloud, the G2 Prix Corrida sees last year’s G2 Prix de Pomone winner and G1 Prix Vermeille runner-up Melo Melo (GB) (Gleneagles {Ire}) tackle the Wertheimers’ TDN Rising Star Pensee Du Jour (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) who was runner-up in ParisLongchamp’s G3 Prix Allez France last month.
