5/1

Two-time course winner who loves soft ground and bolted up at Haydock last time out in Group 3 company. May have a race such as this in him when getting his conditions and well worth respect here.

Dual Group 3 winner who took his form to a new level when third in the Eclipse. Hasn't managed to build on that in two runs since though and best form is on quicker ground.

Has won two Group 1 races in France this year and put up a big effort when runner-up in the fillies and mares race here last year. Needs a bit more against the opposite sex here but not ruled out.

Impressive performance when making up plenty of ground to win the Nassau at Goodwood earlier in the campaign. Hasn't shown her best form on this sort of ground though and well beaten in Ireland last time; others preferred.

Group 2 winner who was only narrowly denied by Roaring Lion in the 1m race here last year. Hasn't been in the same sort of form this campaign but she tends to save her better efforts for this venue; not ruled out.

49-2OR: 122CD
1/1

Triple Group 1 winner, won the fillies and mares race on this card last year. Not seen to anything like her best when ridden too prominently in the Arc, though creditably stayed on for fifth; not much recovery time but has best chance on form.

Only beaten 1L in a French Group 1 at Saint-Cloud and made it two wins from five starts when down in class at Doncaster last time. Plenty more on in this company though.

Won back to back novice events earlier in the season and has run okay in a couple of Group contests of late but no obvious signs he's up to this sort of level.

16/1

Group 2 winner at Saint-Cloud earlier this year and she's been unlucky not to have landed a Group 1, met plenty of trouble in running in the Oaks and ridden far too prominently in France last time; not one to underestimate.

Betting

Forecast

Magical (1/1), Coronet (4/1), Addeybb (5/1), Deirdre (10/1), Mehdaayih (16/1), Regal Reality (16/1), Fox Tal (20/1), I Can Fly (22/1), Pondus (33/1)

Verdict

MEHDAAYIH hasn't been seen to best effect in her last couple of runs but she remains with potential and is worth giving another chance to with conditions in her favour. Addeybb will appreciate ground conditions while Magical is an obvious danger if she's no worse for her excursions 13 days ago in the Arc.
