Prix Hocquart 2004 winner LORD DU SUD (LINAMIX ex Marseillaise) and 2005 runner up SILVER CROSS (KAHYASI ex Snowdrop) are both strong contenders for the 12.5 furlong Grand Prix du Conseil General des Alpes Maritimes LR at the Southern French venue. The Darley bred Corfu (DAYLAMI ex Chania) is a third representative of the Aga Khan stallions.
LORD DU SUD closed 2005 with back to back Listed wins in France, while SILVER CROSS has already won on French soil in 2006 and was also winner of the Prix Policeman LR on the same card last year. Corfu has rarely been out of the frame in the French provinces, winning 4 and being placed once from 7 outings.
