Verdict

Wonder Of Wonders has been holding her own against the best of her generation and is certainly one for the short-list in this. Shareta was found wanting in this grade at Chantilly in June, however, and looks to have little chance of overturning that form with GALIKOVA here. The French Oaks just eluded Freddie Head's filly but she bounced back to winning ways in a Group 2 at Deauville last month and is likely to be a warm order to boost her winnings further here. Testosterone is progressing but Frankie's mount Sarah Lynx will struggle to give weight to the three-year-olds.
