Form & Verdict

Won well on the other course here (5f, good to soft) in April, then had an excuse (the race didn't pan out smoothly) at York; good fourth in the Albany at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) most recently and may be capable of better still; one of the main players.

Behind both Porta Fortuna and Soprano in the Albany and it was an uncompetitive Group 2 that she won at the July meeting (6f, good); the odds-on second wasn't seen to best effect and could finish only sixth in the Lowther next time; probably playing for the places.

took keen hold, disputing third, pressed leaders 2f out, carried right over 1f out, soon ridden to lead, edged left inside final furlong, kept on well

Most impressive at Newmarket (5f, good to soft); below that level in a York 5f Listed race (in which the horse she hammered first time out came second) when she was slowly away on good to firm and the leaders never came back; it's tempting to give her another chance to fulfil the promise of her debut win; 6f should be fine.

Improving filly who has recorded easy wins at Haydock (novice event by 11l) and this course (Listed race by 4l) the last twice, both over 6f (on good/good to firm); granddam won this contest in 2009; leading player on the figures and has excellent credentials.

Form & Verdict

Twice-raced filly who looks a nice prospect for Tom Ward, having scored comfortably at Newbury (6f, good to firm) last time; potentially useful and may acquit herself well in this better grade; however, others have stronger form as things stand.

Successful in Newmarket sales races (6f, good to firm) last August/October, taking her strike-rate to 3-5; faces a different scenario in this warm handicap but should perform well, being suited by the course.

Form & Verdict

Tail-flashing filly who has shown a fair level of ability over 5f, including a win; not disgraced (11th of 26) in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot but needs improvement for this new trip; connections have a better chance with Persian Dreamer.

Has flashed her tail; fair form over 5f on first three starts, including on soft on debut; however, 11th of 26 in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot on third occasion pointed to limitations, as does her last of four in 6f Group 2 at Newmarket on latest start.

Tail-flashing filly who was narrowly denied on debut here (soft) before making amends at Lingfield (5f, good to firm; beat Mariamne); has a lot to find on the figures.
