Built on encouraging debut in no uncertain terms when scoring by 10l at Thirsk (7f) last month; it's possible the soft ground exaggerated the winning margin but she could be yet another useful filly for the yard.

Stablemate of Fallen Angel; out of a half-sister to Blue Bunting, who won this race in 2011; readily beat See The Fire in the May Hill (Group 2) at Doncaster, completing a soft-ground hat-trick; form dipped in the Boussac on the return to faster conditions; chance of resuming her improvement may depend on how the surface is riding; interesting if it turns soft.

£350,000 2yo; favourite at Doncaster (extended 6f; good) and made pretty much every yard of the running, comfortably accounting for one who next time won by 11l; Topspeed/RPR figures bode well and she's a scopey filly with a long stride; major player.

Beaten in major races won by Porta Fortuna, Sacred Angel and Darnation last summer but looked an improved filly in the Nell Gwyn here (7f, good) on reappearance, gamely beating Dance Sequence by a neck; supplemented for this contest at a cost of £30,000; may well build on her trial win provided she stays the new trip (mixed messages in pedigree on that score).

Left her debut form behind when justifying support in a C&D novice (11-4) last August; struggled at Goodwood ten days later but that was in a Group 3 on soft ground and she's back in calmer waters here on her handicap debut; still unexposed and she needs a close look on return.

Quite useful form at up to 6f, although she's come up short at this Group 3 level at Ascot on her last two outings (behind Pretty Crystal and Dazzling Star latterly) and will need to improve for 7f; apprentice Owen Lewis is unable to claim his 7lb allowance.

Disappointing in sales race at Doncaster (6.5f, soft) in September but lost her right-hind shoe; showed promise on soft/very soft ground in the spring before respectable summer efforts in two Group 3 races (6f, good to firm/good), and no surprise if she bounces back with a big performance.
