From a stable who continue in red-hot form and Khalidi is sure to be popular having won an 1800m Listed contest here last month, surviving an early bump and running on too strongly for a highly-regarded rival with the pair clear of the third.
Trained in the UK by an in-form stable, but has been paying his way in France lately, notably when winning an 1800m Listed event at Fontainebleau in March - his first run on a grass surface (very soft) and his first start since being gelded.
This son of Frankel won twice as a two-year-old but disappointed when fading into fifth in a Listed event over 1600m on Lingfield's all-weather surface last month. The decision to geld him has been delayed, instead he steps up in distance.
Won a prestigious Newmarket maiden event over 1600m on his debut last month, always travelling fluently and having some well touted expensive purchases behind him. He could be very smart and this extra distance should be OK.
Two fine performances this season, and only nailed in the last stride in a trial for the Derby over a similar distance to this at Epsom last week. Admittedly he had a race-fitness edge over the highly regarded winner that day, but Permian looks very smart.
