Form & Verdict

Closely matched with Grande Dame on their Listed clash at York in May but finished behind that filly when not firing as she can in a 1m Group 3 at Sandown last time (tried to make all); was found out on her only previous crack at a Group 1 and a similar scenario looks on the cards; best form on good or quicker.

Form & Verdict

Kingman filly out of a 1m2f Group 1 winner; this represents a huge jump in class from comfortable novice wins on the July course (good to firm) and at Kempton (AW) but she's clearly an exciting filly with considerable upside and connections have taken the trouble to supplement her for this; intriguing contender.

Has looked very talented and highly promising against her own sex, notably finishing a good second in last year's Sun Chariot at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) on only her third start; 3-3 otherwise, the latest success in AW Listed contest at Kempton where she comfortably beat inferior rivals; still open to plenty of further progress and appears to have a top-level race in her; strongly respected, with the 3lb allowance, on first attempt against males.

Form & Verdict

Never did herself justice when previously tried at Group 1 level in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot; bounced straight back from that with a convincing defeat of the cast-iron yardstick Oscula in a 1m Listed at Sandown and ran every bit as well back there in August when overhauled late on by one ridden more patiently; can give a good account, but probably placed at best; unraced on softer than good.

Form & Verdict

Off colour in the Jacques le Marois last time but returning to Newmarket rates a major plus, having finished second in the Fillies' Mile and 1,000 Guineas over C&D and beaten a below-par Inspiral on the July course in this summer's Falmouth Stakes; on course form alone, she deserves the utmost respect; fine on good to soft (unraced on softer).

French raider with a progressive profile but her narrow defeat at the hands of British challenger Oscula in a Group 3 at Deauville (1m, good to soft) strongly hints at limitations now dining at the top table for the first time.

Graduate from the handicap ranks and arguably showed career-best form in winning a Group 2 at Sandown back in the spring (1m, good); her subsequent defeats in the Queen Anne and Matron Stakes leave her with some searching questions to answer at this level; proven on most ground.

Form & Verdict

Beaten in both Group assignments as a 2yo but came out fighting this campaign and was thoroughly dominant in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, albeit at the expense of a middle-distance filly in Oaks winner Tuesday; saved for an autumn campaign after missing Royal Ascot due to fast ground and her trainer reckoned she needed the run when a beaten favourite on her return in a muddling Matron (behind Saffron Beach); that defeat does leave her with something to prove on soft ground, though her dam handled it; tongue-tie is an interesting addition; seriously considered.

Has never finished outside of the top two in five previous runs on the Rowley Mile, winning last year's renewal of this race by a comfortable 3l on her final visit; even better this campaign with clearcut wins at Royal Ascot (Group 2) and Deauville (Group 1) before finishing second to one who got loose on the lead in the Matron at Leopardstown; uncomplicated and versatile both tactically and ground-wise, she's a worthy favourite.

A typical slow burner from this yard and wasn't far behind Grande Dame in a Group 3 at Sandown before winning a race of that stature at Chantilly (1m1f, good to soft) without much fuss; however, she clearly needs a career-best effort by some almighty margin to trouble some proven top-notchers.
