Form & Verdict

Finished fourth to top-class Saffron Beach in this 12 months ago; 0-5 in the meantime and her last two runs have been most underwhelming, having previously done well to finish second in an Epsom Group 3 after completely missing the break; no doubting her talent but she's beginning to frustrate.

Won a Group 3 at Sandown (1m, good) in August last year and often there or thereabouts in Pattern company, as when just beaten in a Listed contest at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) last time; handles Polytrack, but she isn't the easiest and a couple of the others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Thrown into the deep end on just her third run and duly sank in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot (did not give her running); good to see her bounce straight back from that to win a strong Listed affair over C&D, leading 2f out and coming clear of the cast-iron yardstick Oscula (won twice since); course experience here is a plus point and she's a big player.

Typical improver for this yard; best form yet when beating the smart Bashkirova at Goodwood in April (1m, good to firm) and she never looked happy on the track when adrift of that rival (and others in here) at Epsom; could take a hand if back on song here.

Closely matched with Grande Dame on their Listed clash at York in May but took a significant leap from there to finish fourth in the Group 1 Nassau at Goodwood (1m2f, good to firm), an effort that can be upgraded given how freely she raced; returning to 1m looks a good move; big shout.

Form & Verdict

After winning her first two races as a juvenile she was only 3l away in a very strong renewal of the Fillies' Mile (good to soft); forgiven her Breeders' Cup defeat from a bad draw but she does need to bounce back from a quiet run in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, which was three months ago; however, has possibilities if she returns to form.

Form & Verdict

Having her first crack at a Group race but her trainer knows what's required for this having won it 12 months ago with Saffron Beach; has a record of 3-4 in handicaps and her latest Newmarket performance (7f, good to firm) was much the best of those; fillies on a roll can be a dangerous species.

Last two wins have come at the expense of Random Harvest, though only narrowly repelled her old rival on these terms at Haydock (1m Listed, good) latest; has plenty of others to worry about this time and can struggle with her consistency.

An improving 4yo with a consistent profile and it was her best form yet when pushing Rising Star all the way in a 1m Listed at Haydock (good) two weeks ago; a repeat of that is unlikely to get the job done here but she has each-way claims.

Others have stronger form than this 5yo, who was below par in the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood (soft) last time; however, she's had a fine season and made all in the Group 3 Valiant Stakes at Ascot (1m, good to soft) two starts ago; also effective on good/good to firm; this course often favours prominent-racers and it will be no surprise to see a bold bid.

4-13 on AW and 0-13 on turf; however, has never run better than when outrunning her 100-1 odds in a Group 3 at Ascot last time, for which her BHA mark was raised 9lb; even the new figure gives her something to find with the best of these, so probably placed at best.
