Verdict

Orfevre supporters may have just about recovered from watching the Japanese star snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in last year's renewal. He looked all over the winner before idling in the closing stages and will be out to make amends this time round. However, there may be better value on offer and a punt is taken on INTELLO. The French Derby winner had an easy prep-race in a Group 3 here last month and there's a chance Andre Fabre's Galileo colt will be even better over 1m4f. The unbeaten filly Treve continued her progress with a cosy victory in the Prix Vermeille trial here last month but Thierry Jarnet will do well to get a good position from an outside draw and Al Kazeem has come out even worse drawn widest of all. Another Japanese raider in Kizuna was all out to beat Ruler of The World in the Prix Niel over track and trip with Ocovango and Flintshire further behind. It would be no surprise to see the runner-up reverse the form while Aidan O'Brien also runs St Leger hero Leading Light.
