Verdict

This should be a lap of honour for ALPHA CENTAURI who has been quite superb in Britain and France since her Irish 1,000 Guineas triumph.

J: Colm O'Donoghue

One of the stars of the season, arriving here on the back of four straight Group 1 victories. She simply cruised away at Deauville on her latest start and is thirteen pounds clear of her rivals on ratings. Shouldn't be for catching.
Outstanding filly in her age-group this season, looks head and shoulders above these

Ended her two-year-old season when winning the Cheveley Park at Newmarket, nowhere near that form in three runs this year. Signs of better when third in the Falmouth last time, but she was five lengths behind Alpha Centauri.
Got closer to Alpha Centauri when third in the Falmouth Stakes than in previous clashes

Group 3 winner at Newbury on only her third start, failing to mix it at higher levels since. Latest second in a Group 3 at Tipperary was a solid effort, but even that form leaves her a long way behind almost all these rivals.
Second in a Group 3 at Tipperary last month, in action at Doncaster on Friday

Well-held by Alpha Centauri in the Irish 1000 Guineas, prior to a narrow defeat by Laurens at Chantilly in June (finished fourth in a bunched finish). Each-way claims on that form, though Ryan Moore prefers Magical.
Third to Alpha Centauri in Irish 1,000 Guineas, fourth to Laurens in the Prix de Diane

Gutsy filly who is a three-time Group 1 winner, not staying the 1m 4f trip on her latest start. Should be happier back at the mile trip, but even her peak form leaves her well short of Alpha Centauri. Should make a bold bid from the front.
Prix de Diane winner should benefit from drop back in trip after Yorkshire Oaks sixth

Took advantage of a good opportunity when winning a weak Group 3 at Naas earlier in the campaign, safely held in that grade on her last two starts. Has no obvious claims upped into this grade.
Sixth to Alpha Centauri in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, subsequent Group 3 form unconvincing

Group 1 placed as a two-year-old, building on a disappointing return this campaign when easily winning a Group 2 at the Curragh. That wasn't the strongest contest, but her peak form puts her in the hunt for the forecast slot.
Former smart juvenile got career back on track with Curragh win, likely second or third
