Form & Verdict

Won the Listed Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, good to firm) last May and placed in all of her three starts this season, including a close second in Group 2 at York (1m2f, good) last month; hit a personal best with that brave effort but all of her runs have been at middle distances and her tactical speed will be tested on this drop to 1m.

Proved suited by the drop to 1m at Royal Ascot, winning the Duke of Cambridge Stakes on good ground; best effort since when second to Tahiyra in the Matron two starts ago, so her three clearly best efforts have been on good; smart filly on her day but needs a career best to land this prize.

Has a patchy record but she's a C&D winner who ended last season with a Group 3 win in Italy (1m, soft); started this campaign with a heavy defeat but she bounced back with a close second behind Prosperous Voyage at Epsom (8.5f, good to firm) last time; that was a bold bid under a penalty and she meets her old rival on 3lb better terms back at this track; in the mix.

Others have stronger form than this 5yo, who was below par in the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood (soft) last time; however, she's had a fine season and made all in the Group 3 Valiant Stakes at Ascot (1m, good to soft) two starts ago; also effective on good/good to firm; this course often favours prominent-racers and it will be no surprise to see a bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Her highlights during her 3yo campaign last season were a close second in the 1,000 Guineas and a win in the Falmouth Stakes (1m, good to firm); made a low-key return at Newmarket last month but got back in the groove with a strong-finishing win in a Group 3 at Epsom (Random Harvest second) 18 days ago; did well to justify favouritism after a slow start in that tactical event and she's a key player again on this step back up in grade.

Won two of her first four starts, including a Listed race at Sandown (1m, good to firm) last July; came up short in her final two runs last season but the latest was a creditable third in the Group 1 Sun Chariot at Newmarket (1m, good to soft); has something to find on the figures on her return from 263 days off but she was progressive last term and is still lightly raced.

Very useful at her best but all of her seven wins have come in 7f handicaps; had some close calls in Listed/Group 3 events last summer, including at this trip, but she was well held in two Group 2 races at Meydan early this year; this looks another tough assignment after 109 days off and others are preferred.
