Ended last season by finishing second of 14 behind the hugely progressive Azure Blue in a Newmarket Listed race in October and has run well in two of her three starts at the same level since returning last month; was having her first attempt at 5f when fourth of ten at Haydock (good to firm) a fortnight ago and each-way claims if building on that.

Useful and consistent filly who landed a Listed prize at Ayr last summer and ran respectably in top sprints towards the end of her 2023 season; drops back in class with William Buick up for first time; likely to go well.

Southwell novice winner (5f, AW) last August who has performed with credit at Listed level the last twice, as when third of 13 on her return from six months off at Chelmsford (6f, AW) in April (winner landed a French Group 3 next time); may find a few too strong again.

All seven starts over 5f; made it 3-3 when very impressive in Listed race here last July; hasn't kicked on as might have been expected and while her Listed third in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Ayr three weeks ago was a step back in the right direction, she needs another here.

Unplaced favourite in Group 1 Nunthorpe (5f, good to firm) last August and also needs to produce more than when third in French Group 3 (5f, soft) last September, when last seen; however, before those she was extremely impressive in a Listed race at York (5f, good to firm) and this very lightly raced 4yo could tap back into that abundant promise following a break.

Listed winner as 2yo; was returning from 293 days off when well beaten in a Listed race at Bath (5f, good to soft) in April (around 4l behind Designer), but bounced back to winning form in a Chester handicap (5f, soft) last month; drying ground no problem having gone close in the big 3yo handicap at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) last year; respected.

Beaten a neck in a Newbury Group 3 a fortnight ago (5f, heavy) but she had a relatively easy time of it up front, with a rail to help, and the form doesn't appeal as being reliable; penalised for a Listed win in July; others appeal more.

Two wins this season, namely a Chester handicap (5f, soft) in May and a York Listed event (5f, good to soft) in July; she's come up shy in Group 2 and Group 1 races the last twice but conditions shouldn't be an issue and she looks the likeliest leader in this field; should go well.

She's opposable on the vast majority of her form but she was a C&D 2yo Listed winner in 2021 and had something to spare in a C&D Listed race (good to soft) last month; also effective on fast ground and she could be in with an each-way squeak now back here after a lesser run at Glorious Goodwood.

Her last two wins have come in a 5f fillies' handicap at the Ebor meeting, finishing her race off strongly to get the better of Rage Of Bamby for this season's; worse off with that rival today and not at her very best when fourth at Newbury two weeks ago (heavy); will find easier openings than this at Listed level.
