Verdict

EXCELEBRATION must be sick of the sight of Frankel as, if the latter doesn't turn up, the Ballydoyle colt wins. A high-class miler in his own right with a victory in last year's Group 1 Prix Du Moulin to his credit, Aidan O'Brien's charge is the one to beat in a terrific renewal. Golden Lilac is a filly out of the top drawer on her day but, along with Immortal Verse, she found Elusive Kate too good in the Prix Rothschild here a fortnight ago. However, William Buick sticks with the latter's stablemate, Fallen For You, after her brilliant display in winning the Coronation Cup at Royal Ascot. Another Group 1 winner at Ascot returns to action in St James's Palace Stakes winner Most Improved but Caspar Netscher usually finds something too good at this level. Cityscape finally laid his Group 1 hoodoo to rest when landing the Dubai Duty Free at Meydan in March and he's not out of this while Moonlight Cloud is having only her second start over a mile but looked better than ever when landing a Group 1 race over 7f here last week.
