In depth

Verdict

This looks a match between the two recent Group 1 winners. Cirrus Des Aigles looked to be back to something like his very best when beating Arc heroine Treve over 1m3f here last month. But this shorter trip may prove his undoing up against last week's impressive Lockinge winner OLYMPIC GLORY. Richard Hannon looks to strike again while the iron is hot and his charge won a Group 1 contest in testing ground here last year. German Group 1 winner Neatico and the returning Pollyana can fight it out for third place.
