This is a sharp enough test for Mondialiste and the best-price 2-1 available with Bet365 on Friday was too short. Kasaqui, only a neck behind the O'Meara runner in the Arlington Million and not out of the top two in four completed turf starts in the US, was tempting at 16-1 with the same firm. However, preference is for MISS TEMPLE CITY, who won a C&D Grade 1 against males in April and is better than her subsequent form figures. Most recently, she moved too soon into a hot pace when conceding weight to some smart rivals, and she had earlier finished in front of the winner of that race. Ironicus completes the shortlist.[Ron Wood]

Form figs in North America 121, winner of Woodbine Mile and runner-up in C&D Breeders' Cup Mile last year (cut in ground both times/got going late), and most recently won Arlington Million (1m2f, firm); however, now back in distance on fast ground, needs good pace and everything to drop right.

Close third behind Grand Arch in this last year and filled same spot but further behind Miss Temple City in C&D Grade 1 in April; good as ever winning Saratoga Grade 1 latest (Grand Arch behind), but had kind trip and things not sure to drop right this time from wide post.

Won C&D Grade 1 against males in April and better than subsequent form figures suggest; was penalised at Royal Ascot/ground too soft; then only fourth in Grade 1 Diana at Saratoga but beaten little more than a neck and that form is red hot; most recently moved too soon into strong pace when conceding weight to three rivals who contest today's Flower Bowl; fair chance.

Improved to win last four over 1m-1m1f at Santa Anita, Grade 1 penultimate start and Grade 3 latest, but absent since April and will have to use gas to take up favoured forward position from outside gate; big ask.

Runner-up in this in 2014 and won last year's race, and then third in C&D Breeders' Cup Mile (behind Mondialiste); more recently only third behind Tourist in Saratoga Grade 1; younger legs will probably have his measure.
