Form & Verdict

Group 2 Gimcrack entry; comfortably won novice at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) and very good seventh of 20 in the Group 2 Coventry at Royal Ascot (6f, good); likely to face softer ground today but that second effort is far and away the best form in this race and his debut is the second best.

Left her debut form well behind when runner-up at Windsor (6f, good) last month but she's not gone on from that and was well held on her nursery debut at Newmarket (7f, good) last time; still early days and now drops back in trip but others are preferred.

The best of her three runs was the middle one when chasing home the useful Watch My Tracer (Coventry seventh) over 6f at Windsor; could have run better back there last time but there's stamina in her pedigree and 7f should suit now handicapping.
