FIESOLANA landed a handicap at this meeting a year ago then went on to score three times in Group 3 company and take the Group 2 Challenge Stakes at Newmarket. She'll be better for her comeback run at Saint-Cloud and can start the new campaign with another success. Peace Burg did very well in France last year, landing a Group 2 at Chantilly. She looked a certain future winner when runner-up to Flying Jib here earlier this month on her first start for Ballydoyle and should get into the frame. Wannabe Better was behind that day and looks held while Alive Alive Oh, who has only had five runs and landed a Listed contest around this time a year ago, failed when stepped up into a higher grade. Big Break looks more of a threat as she was only narrowly beaten by Sruthan at this level in October and, along with Princess Loulou, looks capable of further progress.
