Form & Verdict

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.

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.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing behind a few of these rivals in soft-ground 1,000 Guineas, having won the Fred Darling at Newbury on a similar surface and gone into the Classic with a record of 2-2; may bounce back at some stage but latest effort puts her well down this pecking order; yet to race on good/firmer.

Made it 2-2 when winning Group 3 at Newbury (7f, soft) on reappearance and bounced back from 1,000 Guineas flop when runner-up in Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm), where she did well to rally after having her momentum checked; this lightly raced 3yo could continue to progress and she's one to be interested in.

From a family that has served her connections well; scored at Salisbury (7f, good to soft) on sole 2yo start, then followed up in the Group 3 Fred Darling at Newbury (7f, soft) 15 days ago where she still looked green but beat Stenton Glider with more in hand than the neck winning margin suggests (just pushed out after rider dropped his whip inside final 1f); bred to relish this extra furlong and has a very promising profile; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Possibly had a tactical advantage by being ridden handily in York Listed contest (1m, good to firm) on seasonal debut, narrowly beating the held-up Queen For You and taking form figures to 411; not guaranteed to confirm those placings but looks a similarly interesting contender all the same, being an improving filly who is in notable hands (trainer won this race in 2018 and 2020); attractive credentials.

2yo campaign ended with a success in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf; has finished behind Tahiyra on three occasions, most recently when second in the Irish 1,000 Guineas; may struggle to turn the tables on that filly but she's still a major contender on form and should go well again; won the Albany on this card last year and has proved very reliable in the main.

One of the top 2yo fillies last year, winning the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (1m, firm) last November; runner-up in the Irish 1,000 Guineas in May (1m, good) and respectable fourth in the Group 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown (1m, good) last time; could run into a place but she'll find it tough to beat Inspiral and Mqse De Sevigne if they are at their best.

Promising filly who recorded a comfortable success over the straight 1m here (good) on debut, then ran well in York Listed event (1m, good to firm) where she went down by only a short head to Sounds Of Heaven and fared best of the hold-up runners; should improve further and she's bred for this occasion, being out of her connections' 2012 Coronation Stakes winner Fallen For You; very interesting.

Won on debut in May (1m, good) then went very close in Listed race here (1m, good to firm); down the field in Group 1 Coronation Stakes (1m, good to firm) and tackles a new trip here, but the steady pace may not have suited at Royal Ascot and she retains considerable potential now down in grade for top yard, which has won three of the last eight runnings with 3yos.

All starts at Newmarket; looked smart (won going away) in the Nell Gwyn, taking record to 2-2; soundly beaten behind Tahiyra and Meditate in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket but soft ground was a possible excuse; gained her wins on good/good to soft; may still have more to offer.

Impressive win in the Group 3 Nell Gwyn at Newmarket (7f, good to soft) on reappearance and, after heavy defeats in two Group 1s, she kept on for a fair sixth in the Group 3 Summer Stakes at York (6f, good) last month; this return to 7f could help but others arrive with more pressing claims.
