Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 6yo who seemed to have retained her ability when twice narrowly beaten at Meydan (7f/1m) at the start of the year (including in Group 2 company), but finished a well-held fifth of eight in a Group 3 at Lingfield (7f, AW) three weeks ago (has won on Polytrack); down in grade but still enough to prove.

Promising as 2yo, including a win on good to soft (unraced on worse) before 971-day spell on the sidelines; better than ever this year with comfortable Listed wins at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) and Chelmsford (7f, AW; made all) on last two starts; has the form to figure prominently.

Promising 2yo (2-2); had a 971-day spell on the sidelines afterwards but she confirmed she retained ability in Dubai this winter and she got back on the scoresheet with a cosy win at Musselburgh five weeks ago (7f, good to firm); penalised for that but still considered.

Form & Verdict

Won her first four starts over 6f-1m and although beaten in four outings since, she has been placed in both starts in Listed company as when going down narrowly to the subsequent Group 2 winner Azure Blue at Newmarket (6f, good to soft) four weeks ago; no problem with the return to this trip on a faster surface and a major player.

Comfortably won a Listed race at Haydock (1m, good to soft) in August and she followed up in the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown (1m, good) last month; has something to find with the two main form players but things have clearly clicked for this 4yo, who was supplemented for this race at a cost of £20,000, and she can give another good account.

Won her first four starts, notably the Sandringham at Royal Ascot last summer; runner-up in Listed races twice this year (6f and 7f) and not seen to best effect from too far back when fourth in an AW Listed event last time; thereabouts on form but her slowish starts can put her on the back foot.

Form & Verdict

Three wins last year including a Listed success at Doncaster (6f, heavy) in November; has run well in similar company since returning, finishing second of ten back at Doncaster (6f, heavy) and fifth of 16 at Bath (5f, good to soft), but she has something to prove up to 7f for the first time and does seem best suited by a soft surface; stable won this last year.

Ended 2022 on a high and she's continued the good work, albeit without winning, this season; runner-up three times in Listed events and also ran well in the Ayr Gold Cup when racing nearest the far rail; handles all ground but the recent rain is an obvious positive.

Both runs in maidens at Thirsk (7f, soft) this spring, going down by a head on the first occasion and winning nicely four weeks ago, but quite apart from the different conditions this is a much more daunting task.

Useful filly was a surprise winner of the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes over this trip before being well-held over 1m at the Breeders' Cup; effective apprentice claims a useful 7lb, so has to be considered.
