Form & Verdict

Won the Group 2 Lowther Stakes over C&D (good) last August and was a fine third in the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago when dropped back in trip; also effective on soft ground; this 3yo holds strong form claims and makes plenty of appeal.

Last year's Lowther Stakes winner; has done well since dropped back to 6f this season, making all in Group 3 Summer Stakes back at York and not beaten far when fourth in last month's Sprint Cup at Haydock; however, others have superior form and her best efforts have come on good ground or firmer.

Form & Verdict

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.

Form & Verdict

Well below her best on both outings this season, but she returns from a seven-week break and holds leading claims if rediscovering last year's peak form, when landing two Listed wins in September (one over C&D; has good record here); a long time since she's run well on slow ground.

Form & Verdict

Has something to find but she won three times last year (6f, good/good to firm) and reappeared with a close second to Radio Goo Goo in a C&D handicap (good to firm) last month; that performance bodes well for another progressive campaign and she's not ruled out each-way; unproven on slow ground.

Tough filly who has made great strides from humble beginnings and she's been better than ever this year, second at York on her reappearance in June and chasing home Frankness at Salisbury three weeks ago (both 6f on good to firm); didn't help herself by hanging markedly right last time (not the first time she's hung) but she shouldn't be far away if repeating that form.
