Not at his very best when fourth in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh last month after a two-month break, but he'd previously posted his third Group 1 win when dead-heating in the Dubai Turf and he won this race in fine style in 2020; could have a part to play if rediscovering his peak form.

Won the Group 1 Prix Jean Romanet against fillies and mares at Deauville (1m2f, good to soft) last August and this 6yo has looked better than ever this spring with commanding wins at Longchamp in Listed and Group 3 races (about 1m2f, very soft/good to soft); today's assignment is tougher and there's a question mark about the return to fast ground, but she's nevertheless entitled to considerable respect in view of this year's dominant performances.

Has relished the step up in trip from 1m and he completed a 9.5f-10.5f Group/Grade 1 hat-trick when landing the Prix Ganay at Longchamp in May; close third in the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh last month, when the first two got first run on him, and he might not be far away.

4-4 last year during highly progressive 3yo campaign, culminating in Newmarket Listed win, and his form went to the next level on last month's return when bolting up in the Group 3 Brigadier Gerard at Sandown (1m2f, good); on that latest evidence he should be winning a Group 1 sooner rather than later and this exciting 4yo holds strong claims; unraced on fast ground.

Won the Grade 1 Japanese Derby (1m4f, good to firm) last May and the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic (1m4f, good) in March; it was a red-hot race last time and another example of Japanese-trained horses excelling at the highest level across the globe; there can be optimism this lightly raced 4yo will be fine now back down in trip and he could play a leading role once more.

Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute won this in 2018 and 2019 and, having won his sixth Derby recently, he can win another Group 1 thanks to BAY BRIDGE.
