Following her success here in the Prince Of Wales’s at Royal Ascot, the vote goes to Love in a fascinating clash of the ages.

Aidan O’Brien’s superstar filly made all on her seasonal debut in Berkshire last month over a less-than-ideal mile-and-a-quarter, and the step back up to 14 furlongs should be right up her street.

Probably unsurprisingly, Ryan Moore sides with her over Broome despite her stable-mate’s excellent run of recent form which culminated in a first Group 1 at Saint-Cloud last time, but the Ballydoyle rider has been in fine form in the plate of late.

He’s operating at a 39% win-rate while the selection’s handler has enjoyed a strong vein of form back across the Irish Sea.
