Form & Verdict

Won Doncaster maiden (1m, soft) last October on debut, nosing ahead final strides; 6-1, tailed off in Group 3 at Newbury (7f, soft) in April; bit speculative after that, for all that she is bred to stay 1m2f, probably has very different ground and represents yard with a very strong record in this race.

Entered in Irish Guineas and the Oaks; dam useful 1m4f-1m6f winner; won debut and showed improved form in defeat in her three subsequent starts; second in Group 2 at Doncaster (1m, good to soft) and in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket (good); the last-named form (made most, front two drew clear) is the best in this field.

Second in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile as 2yo and the Musidora on return; found it tough in this season's two Group 1 assignments (Prix de Diane and Yorkshire Oaks) but drew nearly 5l clear in a Listed race on the other Newmarket course (1m4f, good) in between and that performance gives her a shout.

First two 2yo starts (won debut) were on good to firm; second in both the Group 1 Fillies' Mile as 2yo and in the Musidora here on reappearance; down the field in the Prix de Diane at Chantilly but made the most of having her sights lowered in Listed race at Newmarket last month, leading 2f out and drawing nearly 5l clear; moving up to 1m4f clearly suited that day but this opposition demands better still.

Highly tried after making a successful debut last summer, her second-place finishes in the Fillies' Mile (1m, good) and behind Soul Sister in the Musidora (1m2f, good) standing out; may not have enjoyed the run of the race when down the field in the Prix de Diane at Chantilly (10.5f, good to soft) last month, but back in much calmer waters here and her pedigree suggests she could even improve for the longer trip.

Oaks and Ribblesdale entry; dam 1m2f and 1m4f (Listed) winner from family her connections have enjoyed a lot of success with; finished strongly when short-headed by Sea Of Roses at Doncaster (1m, soft) on sole 2yo start; 8-11, no fuss going one better in maiden at Newmarket (1m2f, good) 12 days ago; 1m4f will suit in due course and she's the Oaks second favourite.

Promising second in one 2yo run; easily justified favouritism on her seasonal return in a 1m2f maiden at Newmarket in May and her subsequent Musidora third has been well advertised since; has a four-month absence to defy but the best could still be to come.

Ribblesdale entry, from a fine family; unraced on softer than good; won 6f novice at Doncaster last July and 7f Group 3 at Newmarket last October; lost her unbeaten record in November but that was at the Breeders' Cup at Keeneland (1m) where she raced in last of 14 for a long way but finished fourth; despite her sire, good chance she will stay; also among the best form.
