Ryan Moore dashes to Deauville on Sunday to ride Lope Y Fernandez in the Group 1 contest. Here are his thoughts on the race...

14:50 Deauville - Lope Y Fernandez

This is clearly a very good and deep renewal of this Group 1, but I think Lope Y Fernandez has a big run in him. Really quick ground would worry me, though. That said, it was officially good to firm when he shaped so well when third in the Irish 2,000 Guineas - he looked the likely winner over a furlong out there - and he put a poor Ascot run behind him when second to Pinatubo in the Prix Jean Prat here last time.

He did very well to get within ¾ length of the winner there given he was drawn away from him on the outside, and the manner in which he travelled that day and finished his race off leads you to believe he has a decent chance here, for all he is up against plenty with proven Group 1 class.

Ryan Moore,
