Form & Verdict

Won on debut at Doncaster (6.5f, good) in June and, having had wind surgery following her mid-division finish at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm), she was runner-up in the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Glorious Goodwood (7f, soft); that form has been franked by the winner and she could be involved.

£350,000 2yo who justified favouritism in a maiden at Doncaster (extended 6f; good) in June; sent off favourite for the Albany at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) on the back of that but could only finish of eighth of 17, hanging right under pressure; given a break since (has had wind surgery) and retains potential.

J: James Doyle

T: Simon & Ed Crisford

£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.

Form & Verdict

Won on debut at Newbury (7f, good to firm) in June and followed up in Listed race at Sandown (7f, soft) in July; the runner-up has won Group 3 and Group 1 races since and this unbeaten filly holds leading claims today.

Shuwari

9st 2lb

J: Tom Marquand

T: Ollie Sangster

Thrice-raced filly who brings good 7f form, notably Listed success at Sandown (soft) where she beat subsequent Moyglare winner Fallen Angel; creditable second, ending up with too much to do, in the Rockfel here (good to firm) most recently; ready for a crack at 1m and holds strong claims.

Won on debut at the Curragh (7f, good) in June and followed up in Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown (7f, soft); flopped in Group 1 Moyglare at the Curragh (7f, good to yielding) just 19 days ago and something to prove after that, but she's a key player if rediscovering her previous form.

J: Ryan Moore

T: A P O’Brien

Frankel filly who cost 1,500,000gns as a yearling; duly showed a great deal of ability as a juvenile, culminating in Group 1 Fillies' Mile success at this track (soft; led towards finish) when taking record to 3-5; there are reasons to forgive her Moyglare and Rockfel defeats; likely to be suited by middle distances this year and may be more of an Oaks type; however, she's a big player on form and her trainer has won this Classic seven times.

J: Ryan Moore

T: A P O’Brien

Ballydoyle filly who flopped in the Moyglare when bidding to make her record 3-3; fared better (one place behind Shuwari) in the Rockfel here while strongly shaping as if this step up to 1m is now needed; acts on soft and good to firm; may rate higher still and commands respect.

Form & Verdict

She could do with settling better but she won in good style when 9-1 on her debut at Leicester (7f, good to soft) 17 days ago, when wearing this hood, and her top yard won this last year with a once-raced filly; should have a very bright future and she's one to be interested in.

Both starts over 7f, winning at Leicester despite pulling hard then fourth in Group 2 here (set good pace); unexposed but seems headstrong and may not fulfil her potential until settling better; hood retained.

J: Jack Mitchell

T: Charlie Johnston

Dam 1m-1m2f winner (RPR 109), half-sister to Oaks winner Love Divine; all six 2yo starts were over about 7f, including wins in a maiden on the Newmarket July course and Group 3 at Baden-Baden; well held, however, in her two British Group races, the last of which was at this track; useful form at her best but may lack the potential of some of these.
