Aidan O'Brien will launch a four-pronged attack on the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp on Tuesday evening.

Often referred to as the 'new French Derby', the 12-furlong contest was won in sensational style last year by the now sadly-retired Montmartre.

O'Brien runs Lingfield Derby Trial winner Age Of Aquarius, the mount of Johnny Murtagh, Dante one-two Black Bear Island and Freemantle and Hail Caesar, winner of a controversial race at Gowran on Friday evening.

Leading the home charge is Alain de Royer-Dupre's Beheshtam, already as low as 12-1 for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Godolphin run Italian Derby winner Mastery and Elie Lellouche saddles Wajir while Andre Fabre's Cavalryman completes the classy eight-runner field.
