Form & Verdict

Put up a high-class performance when beating Mother Earth by 3l in last year's Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket (1m, good) in October, making all, and she was far from disgraced against males at the same level at Meydan (1m1f, good) on her reappearance; may not be fully exposed just yet, and she's high on the list despite a 5lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from 13 attempts and she trailed home last behind Mother Earth in last season's 1,000 Guineas; proved she stays 1m when a creditable fourth of seven in Group 2 at the Curragh (25-1) three weeks ago but this is a stronger race and she has plenty to find.

Form & Verdict

Smart on her day, peak performance when fifth in Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket (1m, good to firm; Mother Earth second) last summer; sometimes looks a tricky ride and found little after typically racing freely when last in Listed race at Goodwood (favourite; Bashkirova well ahead in second) on reappearance; not ruled out if everything clicks but carries risks.

Form & Verdict

Often makes running; won last year's German 1,000 Guineas (1m, good to soft), and she ran just as well in the frame in Group 1 Coronation Stakes here (1m, heavy) and Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein at Longchamp (1m, soft) afterwards; a leading candidate on form but has to put a below-par reappearance effort behind her and this will be her first run on ground firmer than good.

Form & Verdict

Has come a long way in a short space of time, winning four of her six races; further improvement when gaining decisive success in Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom (8.5f, good) 11 days ago, leading inside the final 1f; versatile in terms of the ground; more progress required up further in grade but that's not out of the question; trainer won this race in 2019.

Form & Verdict

Tough filly who held her form well during busy 2yo/3yo campaigns, winning two Group 1 events including the 1,000 Guineas; justified favouritism in Curragh Group 3 on her reappearance but was then well beaten in the Lockinge at Newbury last month; today's conditions ideal but she has 3l to find with Saffron Beach on their Sun Chariot running last autumn; cheekpieces on.

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

Useful on her day, best efforts when placed in French 1,000 Guineas at Longchamp and Prix de Sandringham at Chantilly (both 1m, soft) in the first half of 2021; might have needed the run when only fifth of seven in 7f Listed race at Longchamp on her reappearance but she faces a stiff assignment here and has yet to race on ground firmer than good.
