Verdict

Having trained Goldikova to win this in 2010, Freddy Head now has another brilliant filly on his hands in MOONLIGHT CLOUD. Unbeaten this year, she had a host of Group 1 winners behind when landing the Jacques Le Marois at Deauville last time and is hard to oppose. Gordon Lord Byron won this last year and with a recent victory in a Group 1 sprint at Haydock under his belt looks sure to make another bold bid. Garswood has a bit to find with the latter on Haydock running though he's better over today's 7f trip while French 2000 Guineas winner Style Vendome ran below par in soft ground last time. Group 2 winner Viztoria has a much tougher task here and and the German raider Sommerabend was well beaten in this last year.
