Form & Verdict

Along with Westover, she flopped in last year's King George; highly progressive otherwise and bounced right back with hood fitted at Ascot (1m4f, good to soft) on Champions Day, bagging Group 1 honours against her own sex; unlucky second in the Oaks on this card 12 months ago, having stumbled and lost significant ground at the start; huge player back here.

J: Frankie Dettori

Unraced on soft/heavy, acts on any other ground; pulled too hard in this contest 12 months ago, the only major blip in her otherwise progressive career; took well to a hood in next two appearances, showing a tidy turn of foot to win this year's Coronation Cup at Epsom (1m4f) on second occasion; close second to remarkable 3yo Paddington in a thrilling Eclipse at Sandown when dropped back to 1m2f with the headgear removed (it's again missing today); leading claims, provided she settles adequately returned to 1m4f.

Pulled too hard in last year's King George, the only major blip in her otherwise progressive career; has taken well to a hood since, winning 1m4f Group 1 events at Ascot (good to soft) and Epsom (good to firm), showing a tidy turn of foot in the Coronation Cup latest; gives the impression she'll be just as effective back at 1m2f, and the removal of the headgear is understandable given the return to shorter; very classy filly who is one of the two big contenders lined up for an engrossing showdown.

Ruined his chance in this race last year by getting worked up beforehand and failing to settle once under way; otherwise a very good performer and strong stayer at 1m4f, most recently winning the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (good to soft); yet to win a Group 1 on home soil, however, and seems held by Emily Upjohn on Coronation Cup running.

Form & Verdict

Ballydoyle colt who proved smart over 7f as a 2yo; disappointing in the 2,000 Guineas on sole 3yo start but has bounced right back with two Group wins over 1m2f this term, latest at Chester where he did just enough after looking laboured (off the bridle from a long way out); bred to be suited by 1m4f, progressive in the main and interesting back in the top grade.

Form & Verdict

German colt who was unable to justify favouritism back down in class at Cologne on seasonal debut but wasn't totally disgraced in second place; progressive otherwise on home soil, notably with his wide-margin success in Group 1 at Munich (1m4f, heavy; made all) last November; has possibilities on that form and should get another easy lead if same tactics are used.

Took well to first-time cheekpieces in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket (1m4f, good; Group 2) four weeks ago, bouncing back from a few disappointing efforts and returning to something like his high-class 3yo form; bagged three Group 1 prizes and finished third in the Arc during that solid 2021 campaign; evidently revived, he's respected in the retained headgear.

2021 saw him win the Irish Derby, Grand Prix de Paris and the St Leger, and finish third when favourite for the Arc; however, last season he was confined to two runs in the summer and took two backward steps; goes well on softer than good; the class act in this field, needing to reaffirm that but another crack at the Arc remains connections' hope for him.
