Form & Verdict

Impressive 1,000 Guineas winner on return last season and held her form well for the rest of the campaign, adding another Group 1 at Deauville in August; as good as ever when chasing home Golden Sixty at Sha Tin last time and very much the one to beat here.

Tough and smart filly who held her form well during busy 2yo and 3yo campaigns, winning two Group 1 events (including the 1,000 Guineas) along the way; her fifth to Baaeed in the QEII can be marked up (ended up with too much to do); justified favouritism in Curragh Group 3 on reappearance; given her overall record, holds solid claims back up in class.

Form & Verdict

Came on from her reappearance last term with a fillies' Group 3 success at Naas and followed a fourth in the Pretty Polly with an impressive Group 2 success over 1m1f here in July; held her form well twice since but may need to take her form to a new level to land this on return; off 195 days.

A 1m1f course Group 2 winner in 2021; fine effort when touched off by Luxembourg (who was returning after injury) over C&D last August; beaten a neck by Above The Curve in Blandford Stakes over C&D and third in 1m4f Group 1 Fillies & Mares at Ascot; 1m winner on seasonal debut and has run well in defeat since, though a little below the level of best 2022 form

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the third attempt to win at Naas in May last year and was then well held at Group 3 level back at that venue when last seen later that month; big ask on return from 314 days off here.

Ended a losing run with a Listed win at Listowel last month; that was a career best but not certain to appreciate softer ground here and has to concede weight to the field; engaged at Leopardstown, Saturday.
