Form & Verdict

Looked a filly going places when winning Nell Gwyn at Newmarket and Hungerford Stakes here (both 7f, good) last year; promising fifth in the Platinum Jubilee at Royal Ascot (6f) on reappearance but she's been a beaten favourite in two Group 2s since; has something to prove as a result but she's the clear pick on her best form and now returns to the scene of her finest hour.

Not quite at best in York Group 2 a fortnight ago but it was same story in that race 12 months earlier; two starts ago she was beaten just a neck by Khaadem in the Group 1 Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) and it will be no surprise to see a prominent showing in first-time cheekpieces.

Only sixth of nine when favourite for this race last year but she hasn't looked back since, winning a Listed race and a Group 3 over this trip and running a cracker when beaten a neck in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee (6f, good to firm) at Royal Ascot in June; goes well fresh; key player.

Gifted mare with Listed, Group 3 and Group 2 wins over 7f, looking at least as good as ever with an easy reappearance AW success at Lingfield six weeks ago; that should have put her spot-on for a second attempt at this race (beaten only 1l into fifth on reappearance last year when she got going just too late to land a blow); considered best on good ground or firmer; big shout.

Form & Verdict

Failed to score in 2020 and 2021 but back to his smart best this year, delivered late by 7lb claimer Harry Davies to win two 7f handicaps at Newmarket (good/good to firm; wore hood) in the spring; goes well fresh, deserves this step back up in grade and commands major respect.

Hood newly deployed when back to his smart best in taking two 7f Newmarket handicaps in the spring, but well held third in Listed class since; hasn't won over a sprint distance since mid-2018, but respected given he boasts a record of 222 on Polytrack (very useful RPRs each time).

Form & Verdict

Has developed into a useful and reliable 3yo, winning 7f handicap at Haydock in July and running well when second of four in 1m Group 3 there two weeks ago; versatile in terms of the ground and unlikely to be far away for a yard that has won two of the last five runnings of this contest.

Form & Verdict

Came from off a strong pace to win the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes over C&D (good to firm) in August and perhaps his next run at York came too soon after that (seven days later; finished last of nine); conditions should be perfect today but he may need another career best to defy a penalty.

Form & Verdict

Sprang 33-1 surprise in novice at Yarmouth (6f, good to soft) on debut last autumn; shaped quite well in the Fred Darling over C&D on reappearance but she finished last of 15 in the French Guineas next time; returns from a break and may still have untapped potential after just three runs but most of her rivals have a much higher level of form.

Won her only 2yo start, then highly tried in three races last year; made an encouraging handicap debut at Newmarket (1m, good to soft; fifth of 13) last month and may build on that effort; not dismissed.
