"There were no excuses when Pilsudski beat Singspiel in the Breeders' Cup," Scott said. "And Pilsudski has improved since. But he is a big, gross horse, who likes to get his toe in, whereas Singspiel is better on fast ground.
"Helissio would have to be very difficult to beat in France, but it is a case of how he travels," Scott added.
