Burgarita, a close third in the French 1000 Guineas last year, has been unable to improve on that run in seven starts and was beaten in Listed company last time. The much-travelled Ebaiyra finished third in a German Group 1 last time after landing a Listed race at Chantilly. Ville De Grace came good on soft ground at the backend of last season and probably found the going too quick in both starts in the spring. VERY ELLEEGANT has an international rating of 123 having won 14 times in Australia including last year's Melbourne Cup and numerous other Group 1's. She's had a long break but is likely to be tuned up for her European debut. Rosscarbery started the season with a victory in a Dundalk maiden when rated 81 and is now on 107 after landing a Leopardstown Group 3 by the narrowest margin. York Listed winner Aristia produced her best run to date when chasing home Nashwa in the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood.
