Verdict

An excellent opportunity for the highly talented and likeable MOTHER EARTH to win her third Group 1 of the season having already bagged the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Prix Rothschild at Deauville. Pearls Galore deserves a crack at this level having won the Fairy Bridge Stakes with a bit in hand at Tipperary, while last year's winner Champers Elysees could be coming to the boil.
