At The Races Verdict

Wonderful Tonight relishes testing conditions and enjoyed her finest hour when landing her first victory at the highest level in the Prix de Royallieu at Longchamp earlier in the month. That said, David Menuisier's filly had a very tough race and may prove vulnerable to fresher rivals. The vote, therefore, goes to DAME MALLIOT as she finished ahead of Wonderful Tonight when the pair met in the Prix Vermeille last month and she doesn't face a rival of the calibre of the winner of that contest, Tarnawa, in this field. Antonia De Vega is unbeaten in two runs this season and produced a career-best when scoring at Newmarket last month, while Irish Oaks winner Even So and Thundering Nights are both likely to be in the mix with proven form on soft ground.

Timeform Verdict

Three of these fillies met in a good renewal of the Prix Vermeille at Longchamp, with DAME MALLIOT faring best in third. She can hold sway again and land a first success at the highest level. Wonderful Tonight is another with strong claims on the back of her Prix de Royallieu success 2 weeks ago, while Antonia de Vega looked better than ever at Newmarket and is well worth another shot at this.
