SUDIRMAN won a Group One race in Ireland last year, on the back of winning a Group Two. On both those starts he had Big Time following him home. He followed up those two victories by finishing 2nd to Toormore in another Group One. He does carry a penalty for his wins, however the his previous form looks to be the best in the race. If the extra weight isn’t too much of an inconvenience than he should go very close, at odds of 20/1 he looks over priced and offers a solid each-way opportunity.

Fast ground and five furlongs is tailor made for a Wesley Ward horse. SPANISH PIPEDREAM is his entry in the race this year and I expect to see her do what the likes of No Nay Never and Jealous Again have done in the past, which is jump out, make all and win. On her one and only start she raced over four and a half furlongs in a time of 51.26 seconds, that performance makes me confident she’ll be able to run this in under a 59.20 seconds which will put her right there.

This race is seemingly all about Treve, she was a very impressive winner of the Arc last year and is rated the best horse in the world, however I’m looking to take her on. This is her first race overseas and the ground is always quickening, both of those aspects could go against her. My preference is for THE FUGUE, she’s a multiple Group One winner who loves fast ground. I expect her to reverse the form with Magician as she now receives weight, instead of conceding it. Parish Hall, Zambucca and Elkaayed just don’t look good enough. Mukhadram will lead them along, as he did when finishing 2nd in this race last year, however the other jockeys should now be wise to those tactics and keep him close enough this time round. Dank is a classy filly and is sure to run a big race on firm ground, she finished ahead of The Fugue at Meydan in March, however The Fugue suffered a cut that day, I feel that if she’s fit she’ll reverse that form.

At the prices The Fugue is a great each-way bet, if all eight line up, then I don’t see how she’ll be out of the first three. We should she her held up with Treve so William Buick should be able to cover any moves that Frankie Dettori makes.

SKY LANTERN put in her best performance at The Royal Meeting last year, when she won The Coronation Stakes. She carries a penalty for her successes last season, which gives the favourite Integral a very good chance at the weights. Integral was only a length behind Sky Lantern in the Sun Chariot towards the end of last season, however Sky Lantern could probably of won that race by further if she was asked to. I can understand the logic behind making Integral favourite and she should improve for her last run, but 9/2 is too big for a multiple Group One winner, a classic winner and a course and distance winner.
