Form & Verdict

No match for subsequent dual Group 1 winner Nashwa here in May, but went one better in another 1m2f Newbury Listed race next time; respectable fifth of eight when tackling 1m4f in Group 2 at Haydock (soft) 11 weeks ago, seemingly not beaten by the trip; needs better but she is a lightly raced 3yo.

T: Hughie Morrison

Listed/Group 3 winner; her final four runs of last season were at the top table, the best of them when runner-up in the Pretty Polly at the Curragh (1m2f, good); the tongue-tie tried that day was retained afterwards and she wasn't beaten far in either the Yorkshire Oaks (1m4f) or the Prix de l'Opera (1m2f) before unsuited by soft ground on Champions' Day; at this lower level she's a strong contender.

Second in Group 1 Pretty Polly at the Curragh (1m2f, good) and each-way claims on that form, but she wasn't so good in the Yorkshire Oaks or Prix de l'Opera; tongue tied for those last three starts; more to prove at 1m4f (judged on her three attempts at it since a novice win) and on soft ground.

Form & Verdict

Has spent most of his career in Group and Listed races; largely consistent and 1m6f helps to explain a lesser show in the Ebor Handicap at York on latest outing; likely to find one or two too good, though.

AW novice winner who took minor honours this May and June in a Listed race at Goodwood (1m3f, soft) and Group 2 King Edward VII at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good to firm); absent three months but this lightly raced 3yo (tongue tied for first time) should still be open to progress.

Form & Verdict

Best 3yo form came over longer trips, including Queen's Vase win; however, he's made the running back at 1m4f on last two outings and his Group 3 second at Goodwood last time was career-best form; each-way player.

Raced mostly on good/firmer but ran well on soft once in France; broke a losing sequence when dropping from Group races to a five-runner Listed event at Newmarket (1m4f) seven weeks ago on latest outing; has proven stamina and plenty of form that would see him seriously involved.

Raced mostly on good/firmer; losing spell goes back to his Queen's Vase success two years ago but he has shown smart form on occasions since, including in Group races at Meydan this year; has the advantage of recent match practice, unlike Al Aasy and stablemate New London; runner-up in this race 12 months ago; can't be dismissed.

Can front-run; well below form here last September on final 4yo start but ran creditably for minor honours in two Group races at Meydan (1m6f and 1m4f) early this year; form player but it's a little disconcerting that he has not won since 2021 Royal Ascot.

Form & Verdict

Has run very well on all three starts at Newbury, including winning a 1m4f Group 3 in April; that's very much his highlight this season, however, although penultimate start was creditable in form terms; has his work cut out even on best form.
