Sky Lantern and Just The Judge lock horns for the fourth time. The score stands at 3-0 to Richard Hannon's filly so far and there's no reason why she shouldn't come out on top again, as she did when winning the 1000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes earlier this year. But the three-year-old was beaten a neck by ELUSIVE KATE in the Falmouth Stakes here in July and John Gosden's four-year-old went on to beat Duntle with a degree of comfort in the Group 1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville when Chigun finished nearer last than first. She weakened inside the final furlong when only seventh in the Prix Jacques Le Marois last time but that was arguably the best Group 1 race run so far this year and a return to winning ways here looks likely. Integral is improving but needs more to figure in this grade while La Collina could also find the opposition too strong.
