In depth

Verdict

The Europeans hold a strong hand in this with Tom Hogan's Gordon Lord Byron much improved since the summer. He was second in the Sprint Cup at Haydock before winning over 7f at Longchamp, though the further step up in distance is a bit of a worry. Willie Haggas' Master Of Hounds did well on Turf in Dubai last winter and won in Turkey in September so is accustomed to globe-trotting but French challenger SIYOUMA has really found her stride and can complete the hat-trick after winning the Sun Chariot at Newmarket and the A P Taylor Stakes at Woodbine over an extra quarter-mile. Japan's Sadamu Patek is also worth a mention as she beat Grand Prix Boss at Kyoto last month while locals Glorious Days, Ambitious Dragon, Pure Champion, Xtension and Packing Ok are closely matched on the form book.
