£190,000 breeze-up buy; this is a quick turnaround from Nottingham (5f, good to firm) two weeks ago but she carried plenty of confidence in the market and won comfortably from a prominent position; respected, for all that the second performing so moderately at York last Friday casts a cloud over the form.

Probably beaten by a smart colt from Ballydoyle at the Curragh (6f, good) and she looked a threat before flattening out late on; looks to have the raw speed for 5f and she's since been snapped up by high-profile owners; could be a lively one for a yard that won this in 2021.

£100,000 yearling who is bred for speed; slow starts were a feature in both her races (5f, good to firm) but still won at Thirsk before being narrowly denied by a 125-1 newcomer in Beverley's Hilary Needler after a troubled run brought on by herself; has to improve again to trouble the best of these and another laboured start won't help the cause.

Created a good impression on her debut at Thirsk (5f, soft; runner-up then finished second to Miss Rascal here before winning an Italian Listed race) and was fine on the good ground at York (Listed) where she was in the firing line throughout before conceding late on to Betty Clover; has each-way claims, though some late hanging in both her races didn't go unnoticed.

On the strength of her debut second at Newmarket (Seraphim Angel and Miss Rascal behind) she was entitled to win at Lingfield (5f, good) and duly did so with the minimum of fuss; her Topspeed figure is right up there in today's field and she's by no means dismissed from what could be a beneficial draw.

Her dam stayed beyond 1m but the sire instills plenty of speed into her pedigree; a winning debut appeared unlikely when under the pump some way out at Tipperary (5f, soft) but she found loads for pressure to beat Oxford Rock by an increasing margin at the line; a smart RPR bodes well and, as the chosen one from Ballydoyle's initial entries, she commands considerable respect.

Looks a better filly now than when beaten by Betty Clover at Bath and she conceded early ground and a penalty to subsequent winner Where's Clare last time at Carlisle (5f, good to firm; other runs on good), lowering the juvenile course record in the process; clearly very useful and there's more to come no doubt; it remains to be seen whether stall 1 will be a help or hindrance.

An imposing daughter of American Pharoah; Wesley Ward, who has won this four times, was blown away by her work before she breezed home in blinkers over 4.5f at Keeneland in April (fast dirt) and she's reportedly worked as impressively on grass since; possesses the trademark early speed associated with the yard's Royal Ascot runners and has to be of interest.
