Form & Verdict

Hugely exciting filly who was impressive in both 2yo starts and looks set to have a glittering 3yo campaign; easily beat her rivals in Galway maiden (7f, good to yielding) on debut, then looked stellar in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh (7f, soft) where she quickened past Meditate inside the final half-furlong to win going away and record the best performance by a 2yo filly in Europe last year; bred to relish 1m+ this season and, having raced just twice, could well rate a lot higher still; strongly respected.

Acts on soft; esteemed Irish filly who was impressive in both 2yo starts; clear second in the 1,000 Guineas then went one better in the Irish version, before the Coronation Stakes (on the round course here) and Matron saw her complete a Group 1 hat-trick; behind a couple of these rivals on the figures but gives the impression she may still rate higher and either way she's one of the main contenders.

Her Moyglare Stud Stakes success (on soft going) was the best performance by a 2yo filly in Europe last year; clear second in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket on reappearance despite not being quite at peak condition (a couple of weeks behind, according to trainer), then went one better in the Irish version at the Curragh (on good ground) where she was pushed out to beat Meditate and took record to 3-4; has now finished in front of that Ballydoyle rival on three occasions; top on the figures and gives the impression she hasn't reached her peak; strongly respected.

Excellent juvenile campaign ended with a comfortable success in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Keeneland (1m, firm), taking form figures to 1111221; good second (behind Tahiyra then Lezoo) in Group 1 races in September and earlier form includes a defeat of Mawj in the Albany at Royal Ascot; acts on soft ground; likely to reverse placings with Lezoo over this distance and, having progressed all the time, looks set for a very interesting rematch with Tahiyra; big player on the figures and her trainer has won this contest five times in the last seven years; strong credentials.

Won her only 2yo start; clear best efforts this term when fourth in the Nell Gwyn (7f) in April and fifth in Sandown Listed event (1m) last month; has something to find on ratings but may improve for the new trip (sire and dam were middle-distance performers).

Shadwell cast-off, sold for just 2,000gns as a yearling but picked up by current connections for 110,000gns last spring; won at Kempton (1m, AW) on sole 2yo start, making her the only once-raced filly in this field; has stacks to find on bare form but is open to any amount of progress.

Led home five subsequent winners on 1m AW debut as 2yo; out of depth in 1,000 Guineas on return and just a fair fifth back in a novice after (first-time hood, retained); back on track when winning a 7f handicap at Newmarket in July (good to soft) and has potential for more up just 3lb.

Progressed out of nurseries to win the 1m Group 2 May Hill Stakes at Doncaster last September for the now-retired Harry Dunlop; however, she's been unable to replicate that form this year on her two runs for Ben Pauling and needs to raise her game now starting out for another new yard.

Has big-race entries over 1m and 1m4f; big improver last term for Harry Dunlop, peaking with Group 2 win in the May Hill at Doncaster (1m, good to soft); creditable fourth in the Fillies' Mile here next time but tailed off on soft in the 1,000 Guineas on reappearance (66-1); 2yo campaign gives hope for 1m2f but she's not bred for it and gives 5lb all round today.

Encouraging third in conditions race at the Craven meeting here (7f, soft) last month when having first start since a successful debut (5f, good) at same meeting a year earlier; unexposed and looks worth a crack at 1m but yard has a much stronger chance with Mammas Girl.

Won sole 2yo start (5f) and returned from 12 months off with a very good third in a 7f conditions stakes (soft) on the Rowley Mile; couldn't have expected much in the 1,000 Guineas after but her handicap debut over 7f since was sadly lacking; needs major turnaround in first 6f run.

Tailed off in the 1,000 Guineas a fortnight ago and has to leave that run miles behind, but she has far more realistic claims in this handicap and showed promise on her other two starts, winning a course maiden (5f, good) last April and finishing a good third over C&D (soft) last month; respected.
