On Sundays, you'll often find Betfair Ambassador Ryan Moore at Longchamp. This weekend is no exception and here our man explains why he's looking forward to riding in a highly competitive race...

"The ground looks like being on the easy side of good, which will be fine, and she has experience of the track as she beat the colts in a soft-ground Lagardere around here last season. You can give about six of these a chance, though."

My ride will need to improve against a talented field

15:05 - Happily

I was a little bit disappointed with her in the Irish 1,000 Guineas but I do think she is the sort of filly who will improve with her racing throughout the season, and I think the step up in trip will suit. She has been strong late on in both her races this year.

The ground looks like being on the easy side of good, which will be fine, and she has experience of the track as she beat the colts in a soft-ground Lagardere around here last season. You can give about six of these a chance, though. Shahnaza is a straightforward filly who has impressed in both her starts this season and you have to fear her and obviously Laurens, who finished in front of my filly and who beat With You in the Alary last time, has strong forms claims.

Musis Amica got a very long way back in the French 1,000 Guineas last time and is probably a fair bit better than she showed there, and Castellar won nicely when stepped up in trip at Saint Cloud. If you wanted one at a bigger price, then Homerique could be the one. She looks a very good filly to me. She bolted up here on her debut and then ran an excellent race when second to Luminate, just getting worried out of it late on after getting her head in front.

That experience will have done her plenty of good and this Exchange Rate filly could be a big danger to all on just her third start
