Verdict

Formerly trained in Ireland, Laughing has come into her own this year, winning all four starts on Turf including a couple of Grade 1 contests. She beat Qushchi two lengths at Belmont last time but Tiz Flirtatious will provide a stronger test as she landed a Grade 1 race over track and trip recently with Lady Of Shamrock well behind and Marketing Mix beaten a head. The latter had earlier finished behind Dank when she trounced her rivals in the Beverley D at Arlington on first-time lasix and Sir Michael Stoute's filly is likely to start favourite on that form. However, ROMANTICA could prove better value. She's won both starts over 1m2f this year, including a Group 1 at Deauville with subsequent Prix de l'Opera winner Dalkala back in third. Her dam, Banks Hill, won this race so Andre Fabre's filly gets the vote. Alterite beat subsequent winner Emollient before finding Kitten's Dumplings too good at Keeneland and that trio are no back numbers in what looks a terrific renewal.
