Form & Verdict

Well behind Dollerina here first time out (7f, good) but was seen in a very different light when overcoming a wide draw to win as she liked at Leopardstown (7f, yielding to soft), beating Stromberg who won his next two very easily and was down to contest yesterday's Beresford Stakes here; has been off for two months but she looks highly promising.

Fair sixth on debut at the Curragh; made significant progress to win his next two starts, a 5l defeat of a Ballydoyle-trained colt at Leopardstown, and 7f Group 3 Weld Park Stakes on soft ground at the Curragh; well supported for the Fillies' Mile but dropped away tamely into sixth behind Ylang Ylang; 3lb penalty here.

Finished 9l behind Ylang Ylang on debut but has shown good progress to win both starts since, latest in Group 3 at the Curragh (7f, soft; led towards finish); should be suited by 1m and could well improve further.

Brilliant had the benefit of experience when she pushed that rival to a neck at Leopardstown (7f, soft) and then ran into subsequent Moyglare runner-up Vespertilio in the Group 2 Debutante Stakes here (good to yielding; Dollerina behind); clearly a winner waiting to happen and has strong claims back in a Group 3.

Form & Verdict

The most experienced of these after six starts and hasn't progressed from beating Sakti in July; 33-1 when down the field in the Moyglare and she looks very vulnerable all of a sudden in races of this nature.

Ballydoyle filly who ties in with Caught U Looking on penultimate effort but looks rather exposed now and record stands at 1-8; stable has a much stronger chance with Ylang Ylang.

Taking her racing well and posted a career-best here a fortnight ago when front-running third in Group 3 Weld Park Stakes over 7f; not sure that warrants her current mark of 105 and possibly vulnerable but should again be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

Shaped nicely in a barrier trial (fourth) before bumping into a subsequent Group 3 winner over C&D in June when doing her best work late; backed into 9-2 for the Group 2 Debutante Stakes here and didn't get the chance to show her true worth after a troubled run; should finish closer to runner-up Sakti this time and is by no means ruled out.

Twice beaten in maidens but her debut form has worked out well and she could have bumped into a smart one at Cork (newcomer from Dollerina's yard; 1m, good); has a bit to find on the figures but she's surely got a lot more to offer.

Twice beaten in maidens but her debut Curragh run has worked out well and she was beaten only a head at Cork; back in maiden company now after contesting a 7f Group 3 event at the Curragh, started slowly then and stayed on without reaching a challenging position; this trip should suit.

Only blip came in the Chesham at Royal Ascot; beaten favourite in a Listed race at Leopardstown last time and there were no excuses after enjoying a relatively easy lead; others appeal more.

Best runs have been at Leopardstown, winning maiden and chasing home Kitty Rose in Listed fillies' contest over just short of this trip; too keen when well below that form in Group 3 Weld Park Stakes here a fortnight ago and bit to find now.
