Last year's Lowther Stakes winner; has done well since dropped back to 6f this season, making all in Group 3 Summer Stakes back at York and not beaten far when fourth in last month's Sprint Cup at Haydock; however, others have superior form and her best efforts have come on good ground or firmer.

Form & Verdict

Suitably bred filly who made a winning debut at Haydock (6f, good to soft) seven weeks ago; that form isn't compelling but she's open to any amount of improvement and has the perfect pedigree for this occasion as her dam, granddam and great-granddam were all Lowther winners (on good/firmer) for her owner; highly interesting contender in that respect.

Form & Verdict

Exciting filly who has created a big impression in 5f contests, scoring impressively at Newmarket (good) then comfortably beating her 20 rivals in the Queen Mary (good to firm); recorded a good time on both occasions and, while the Royal Ascot form has taken some knocks, she appears to be very talented; the Nunthorpe was considered a possible target but she sticks to her own age group instead and holds leading claims with this extra furlong unlikely to be a problem.

All races have been on good or quicker ground and she has shown her best form over a bare 5f, when winning the Queen Mary at this meeting last summer and coming home with a rattle from Equilateral on return in a Group 2 at Haydock; raced on the favoured strip in the latter but has earned her place among the principals for this; good claims getting the allowances.

Impressive last year on first two 2yo starts, winning Group 2 Queen Mary at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) on the second occasion; underwhelming favourite in the Group 2 Lowther (6f, good) in August and needs more than when second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (5.5f, firm), but she remains very lightly raced and could have more to offer now back at a bare 5f.

The addition of a hood saw her win a good fillies' handicap at Newmarket last September and she followed that with a Listed second over C&D in November; perhaps unsuited by the drop to 5f here three weeks ago when the hood was absent; headgear returns today, along with a new tongue-tie, and she's one to consider.
