In depth

Verdict

Audarya hasn’t won since landing last year’s renewal and was beaten by Love at Ascot in July and then by the French filly Rougir in the Prix de l’Opera last month. The fast ground is an unknown for the latter while the other European fillies Acanella and Ocean Road have something to find at this level as does Queen Supreme. The Japanese filly Loves Only You is preferred if repeating her third to Mishriff at Meydan in March while the home challenge is led by War Like Goddess, who beat My Sister Nat before landing a Grade 1 at Saratoga in September. Going To Vegas just prevailed in a Grade 1 contest at Santa Anita but a chance is taken on POCKET SQUARE. A Group 3 winner for Roger Charlton before joining Chad Brown, who has won this four times in the last 10 years, she won eased down at Belmont last time and looks primed to run a big race over this longer trip.
