Verdict

Having won this three times with Marchand D'Or, Freddie Head attempts to repeat the feat with the winner of the last two renewals, Moonlight Cloud. A multiple Group 1 winner, the latter has leading claims once again after picking up a Group 3 at Longchamp on her reappearance, but it could pay to stick with LETHAL FORCE. Clive Cox's charge colt has cemented his reputation as a high-class sprinter with victories in the Diamond Jubilee at Ascot and the July Cup at Newmarket last time and today's extra half-furlong is no problem. Gordon Lord Bryon and Gale Force Ten have something to find with the selection while Tulips and the speedy Catcall look best of the remaind
