Verdict

Wigmore Hall is class act on his day but it's hard to tell what Michael Bell's charge will make of the testing ground and he finished well behind CIRRUS DES AIGLES in the Champion Stakes at Ascot in October anyway. The latter went on to win another Group 1 event in the Sheema Classic in Dubai last month and given today's surface is no problem, he's the one to beat in this. It was soft ground when Reliable Man won the French Derby at Chantilly last year though stablemate Giofra has a fitness advantage. Alain de Royer-Dupre's filly is progressing with every run and won the Group 2 Prix D' Harcourt in good style over C&D just three weeks ago with the re-opposing Saga Dream well off the pace. Pagera simply doesn't look good enough.
