Verdict

TASADAY failed to cope with Arc contender Treve in the Prix Vermeille last time. She faces nothing of that calibre in this and Andre Fabre's filly had won a couple of Group races over today's trip at Deauville earlier. She also has the beating of previous Group 1 winner Silasol on latest running and should have the edge over Sarkiyla and Dalkala, who were separated by only a length when placed in the Prix Jean Romanet in August. The soft ground may see Secret Gesture go close on the back of placed efforts in three Oaks races. Ralph Beckett's filly finished ahead of Red Lips when runner-up in the German version and makes more appeal than the other UK raiders Thistle Bird and Gifted Girl.
