Fresh from Ascot on Saturday, Ryan Moore crosses the English Channel to ride at Deauville on Sunday. Here's what he thinks about his ride's chances...

"Roly Poly could maybe run a career-best and finish fourth - but she is tough, in form and hopefully still on the up."

14:55 - Roly Poly

This is a pretty hot renewal and the likes of last year's winner Qemah and Usherette, slowly returning to her best, probably set the form standard here. And the older fillies and mares look tough nuts to crack. But Roly Poly gained deserved compensation and reward for having to chase Winter's tail at the Curragh and Ascot when winning a Group 1 of her own in the Falmouth last time.

This is another level altogether and she clearly needs to progress again to get amongst the older brigade - she could maybe run a career-best and finish fourth - but she is tough, in form and hopefully still on the up. Qemah is bidding for her fourth Group 1 though, and she is very much the one to beat.
