The Prix Rothschild at 14:33 is the eye-catching Group 1 on the eight-race card.
It's over a mile and for fillies and mares, so Alcohol Free might have been better going for this race rather than the Sussex Stakes in which she was third.
Betfair have priced the race in line with both the international and Racing Post ratings. The three raiders head the Sportsbook market - Saffron Beach 2.01/1, Tenebrism 2.757/4, and Pearls Galore 8.515/2. The four Frenchies are 21.020/1 and up.
Yes, she is the favourite, but it is hard to get away from Saffron Beach. Jane Chapple-Hyam's four-year-old has won all her races against her own sex in the last year.
Her most recent wins came on the two occasions today's rider William Buick has been in the saddle. In the Sun Chariot at Newmarket last autumn she made all and came home three lengths clear of Mother Earth, the winner of this race 12 months ago.
Last time out at Royal Ascot, Saffron Beach won the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes with even more style, again beating Mother Earth, with Kennella, last of the seven starters.
While Saffron Beach ticks the distance box, her market rival Tenebrism doesn't.
Aidan O'Brien's filly won the Cheveley Park over six and the Prix Jean Prat here over seven. In between, she has finished down the field in the 1,000 Guineas for which she was favourite. Then she was fourth in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Paddy Twomey's Pearls Galore finished runner-up in the two European Group 1s she contested last autumn, coming closest when beaten a neck by No Speak Alexander in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.
Mother Earth was a length or so behind her, so using her as a yardstick you wouldn't expect Pearls Galore to finish closer than second, and more likely third.
The French quartet are not in the same class, so it is not surprising to see them all closer to 21.020/1 than 11.010/1. Goldistyle's dam Goldikova won the Rothschild four times, from 2008-2011 inclusive, but her filly has simply won a maiden and a Listed.
Her recent fourth in the Group 3 Prix Bertrand du Breuil doesn't amount to much and the race is best left to Saffron Beach.
Buick can kick off with a winner for Godolphin
The Prix de Psyche Sky Sports Racing at 12:10 is a 10-furlong Group 3 for three-year-old fillies.
I thought it would be a target for also-rans in the French Oaks over a similar trip but that is not the case. Beaute Cachee is the only one of the seven to come on from the Chantilly Classic. She was ninth to Nashwa that day, beaten just a neck for seventh.
Little wonder that she is 67.066/1 on the Sportsbook but that does give her each-way appeal, even with only the first two eligible for a place dividend.
Andre Fabre runs three, with Maxime Guyon's mount Mqse De Sevigne shortest at 3.02/1. She was ninth in the French 1,000, the same position as Beaute Cachee in the Oaks - yet one is [3.0} and the other 67.066/1.
Stablemate Hidden Dimples drops back to 10 furlongs after disappointing in the Prix de Royaumont, a Group 3 over 12. She was three and a half lengths behind Manisha, the third Fabre runner in today's race, but is two points shorter as this is more her trip than that race.
Buick has the chance to get his afternoon off to a flying start on the Musidora runner-up Life Of Dreams.
The Godolphin filly disappointed in the Ribblesdale after her second to Emily Upjohn at York but was prominent until well after turning for home, so will be suited by the drop back in distance. At 3.02/1 she is worth a close look.
Jessica Harrington runs Trevaunance a winner of a three-runner race at Limerick. I can't get enthusiastic about her but Shane Foley has flown over and this 8.07/1 shot is his only runner in single figures this afternoon.
Back Terrestrial to hold Sydneyarms' challenge
I was going to make George Boughey's Kinta my day's best bet but she doesn't go to post in the Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing at 12:43.
In her absence, I suggest backing Terrestrial. Stephane Pasquier's mount is the best of those to have run over course and distance, having been beaten a short head by Breizh Sky in the Listed Prix Roland de Chambure with Sydneyarms Chelsea back in fourth, two lengths clear of the fifth Cosmic Invasion.
Gain It, Zara Blue, Evina, and Sea The Lady have won minor races and will do well to trouble Terrestrial and Sydneyarms Chelsea.
Amy Murphy's Ipanema Princess is rightly priced up at 81.080/1 as she doesn't have a cat in hell's chance of winning. If the others go off too fast she might nick fourth or fifth but she is way out of her depth on what she has done to date.
Moore's best chance is The Antarctic
Given Ryan Moore is on four that are due to start at shorter than 5.04/1, there is a strong chance he will leave Deauville with at least one winner.
He could well have a four-timer as Sydneyarms Chelsea, Tenebrism, The Antarctic in the Darley Prix de Cabourg at 13:18, and Joie De Soir in the Prix du Carrousel at 15:08 are all either first or second in the betting.
The Antarctic is a worthy 2.89/5 favourite for his Group 3, having come second to his stablemate Blackbeard at Chantilly, three lengths in front of Belbek.
Wootton City has kept Listed company over the minimum trip since her two wins at Marseille in May over six.
When she was beaten a head by Sivana here last time, she was giving that filly 5lbs. Today they both carry the same weight, which was the case when Wootton City won the Listed Prix La Fleche at Chantilly and Sivana was two and a half lengths back.
Amy Murphy's Manhattan Jungle 9.517/2 is a Listed winner at Lyon. Michael Bell's Kerindia 34.033/1 won a minor race at Nottingham. Neither appeal to be honest and their respective odds reflect their form with Manhattan Jungle four times more likely to be placed.
