Verdict

Camelot's reputation has taken a bit of a battering since he completed the Epsom/Curragh Derby double a year ago and he was put firmly in his place by AL KAZEEM in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh last month, despite the presence of pacemaker Windsor Palace. We can see no obvious reason why Aidan O'Brien's colt should reverse that form here with Roger Charlton's lightly-raced five-year-old, who is finally beginning to justify his trainer's high opinion of him. The latter gets a confident vote in this as he is less exposed than Jonathan Pease's Maxios, though the French raider has done very little wrong this season having run at the highest level and won twice at Longchamp. The Fugue is a high-class filly and has been given plenty of time to recover from a rough race in Breeders' Cup Fillies And Mares Turf at Santa Anita in November where she would probably had won if she hadn't been trapped on the rails. She'll be ready for this and makes more appeal than globe-trotting Red Cadeaux and Brigadier Gerard Stakes winner Mukhadram.
