Verdict

GAULOISE made a most impressive start to life with Willie Mullins when easily landing the odds here last month so is fancied to take this step up in class in her stride and maintain her unbeaten record. Sayce Gold takes a big drop in trip but is a mare firmly on the up so still warrants plenty of respect with Place des Vosges appealing as the pick of the rest and a sound place prospect.
