Form & Verdict

Won at Dundalk (10.6f, AW) in April on second start then went very close behind Forest Fairy in the Listed Cheshire Oaks (11.3f, good); bypassed the Oaks and this unexposed filly could have plenty more to offer for her top Irish trainer; Ryan Moore rides and she's respected in a first-time visor.

Won Ayr novice (1m, heavy) on fourth and final 2yo start and she's 2-2 this season following wins at Doncaster (1m handicap, good to soft) and Goodwood (1m2f Listed, good); others have stronger form but she did well last time to reel in one who had slipped the field, and that strong finish and her pedigree provide optimism she can improve for today's extra yardage; chance.

Form & Verdict

Bolted up on handicap and turf debut at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in April and confirmed that promise when Listed runner-up there (1m2f, good) last month, when well clear with the winner (who didn't show her true form when flopping in Musidora); shapes as though 1m4f will suit and she's one to consider.

J: Oisin Murphy

T: Andrew Balding

Late foal; plenty of promise on AW in her first two starts but, even so, the rout of her eight opponents in handicap here (1m2f, good; led over 3f out) 18 days ago was something else; Ribblesdale entry who has clearly the best form in this line-up.

Made it 2-3 when making all in game fashion in the Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, good) last month, then finished fourth in the Oaks (1m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago; she was beaten just over 8l at Epsom but it was still a creditable performance and she could be in the shake-up today.

Impressive at Wetherby on third run and improved again when third in Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, good); behind You Got To Me and Rubies Are Red last time but she's a half-sister to last year's Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami and is in excellent hands to continue to progress; one of three for yard.

Closely related to Ascot Gold Cup-winning stablemate Courage Mon Ami and half-sister to very smart 1m3f/1m4f winner Lion's Pride, plus three more with peak RPRs of over 100; placed in two AW contests before easily going 12l clear in novice at Wetherby (1m2f, soft) 13 days ago; she was 4-7 that day but it was nevertheless a striking performance and she looks well worth her Oaks and Ribblesdale entries.

Fair form in fourth on last month's debut here (1m2f, good to soft) then won 1m4f AW maiden; granddam is Oaks winner Sariska and stable has an excellent record in this race (she's one of three for yard) but she had to work hard last time and needs a chunk of improvement upped markedly in grade.

Form & Verdict

Didn't settle and made it 0-4 when well beaten in the Oaks 20 days ago; however, perhaps the undulations and camber didn't suit and, having failed to handle the downhill run in the Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, good) two starts ago, she flew home from a long way back to go close behind You Got To Me; this sister to the top-class Found could be a key player if tapping back into the Lingfield promise at this more conventional track.

Won on debut at Sandown (1m2f, good to soft) in April and third of five to Diamond Rain in Listed race at Newbury (1m2f, good) last month, beaten just over 3l; she has work to do with the winner but failed to settle off a steady pace and could be capable of considerably better in view of her pedigree (out of Group 1 winner Timepiece) and who she's trained by (yard runs three).

Won on debut here (1m, good to soft) on May 1 then took big step forward with commanding Listed win at Newbury (1m2f, good), when again strong at the finish; her dam Dancing Rain won the Oaks and she promises to be suited by today's trip; leading contender.

Out of Oaks winner Dancing Rain and is a half-sister to the yard's Jalmoud (1m4f Listed winner; 110) and Magic Lily (UAE Group 2 winner; also won first time up; RPR 107); strong chance this one will have a big say on debut.
