Form & Verdict

She's not ultra-reliable and hasn't been at her very best on three of her last six starts; however, she's won four 1m Group 1s (good to soft/good to firm; including C&D), the most recent the Prix Jacques le Marois in August on her latest start, and holds leading claims if at the top of her game.

4yo who has shown improved form to win Group 1 races at Deauville the last twice, namely the Prix Rothschild (1m, soft) in July and Prix Jean Romanet (1m2f, very soft) in August; also effective on good ground (unraced on faster); her latest performance reads very well and she's entitled to considerable respect for her top French trainer who won this in 2015.

Won her first four starts, notably the Sandringham at Royal Ascot last summer; runner-up in Listed races twice this year (6f and 7f) and not seen to best effect from too far back when fourth in an AW Listed event last time; thereabouts on form but her slowish starts can put her on the back foot.

Form & Verdict

Won the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) in June and, after defeats in two Group races (albeit with an excuse on second occasion), she won a C&D Listed race (good to firm) last Friday; this lightly raced 3yo is in top hands and could develop into a Group/Grade 1 winner at some point, but she needs a sizeable leap forward if she's to prevail today.

One of the top 2yo fillies last year, winning the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (1m, firm) last November; runner-up in the Irish 1,000 Guineas in May (1m, good) and respectable fourth in the Group 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown (1m, good) last time; could run into a place but she'll find it tough to beat Inspiral and Mqse De Sevigne if they are at their best.

2yo campaign ended with a success in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf; has finished behind Tahiyra on three occasions, most recently when second in the Irish 1,000 Guineas; may struggle to turn the tables on that filly but she's still a major contender on form and should go well again; won the Albany on this card last year and has proved very reliable in the main.

Others have stronger form than this 5yo, who was below par in the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood (soft) last time; however, she's had a fine season and made all in the Group 3 Valiant Stakes at Ascot (1m, good to soft) two starts ago; also effective on good/good to firm; this course often favours prominent-racers and it will be no surprise to see a bold bid.
