Verdict

Sandiva won a Group 3 over 7f at Deauville in August for Richard Fahey and a literal reading of the form gives her every chance with LESSTALK IN PARIS. But the former as been nowhere near soft going so far, unlike Jean-Claude Rouget's filly, who scored in testing ground over a mile at Chantilly with the minimum of fuss. She's taken to maintain her unbeaten record at the main expense of Royalmania. The latter looks to have been laid out for this after landing the odds in a couple of lesser events. Majeyda will need to step up on her recent second to Ihtimal at Doncaster and Wonderfully finished behind the same horse when fourth in last week's Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. Queen Catrine has only raced on fast ground over 6f to date but Veda and Testina are open to improvement.
