Johnny Murtagh will partner Aidan O'Brien's Recital in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud.

The Montjeu colt won the same Navan maiden as top-class stable companion Fame And Glory, who claimed this French Group One contest on his next start.

While soon-to-depart stable jockey Murtagh receives the leg-up on Recital, O'Brien has a couple of other contenders in Obligation, partnered by Colm O'Donoghue, and Exodus, the mount of Seamie Heffernan.

A total of 11 runners are due to go to post for the 10-furlong contest, with Mick Channon's Rigolleto the sole British participant.
