Form & Verdict

Appears to handle any ground; very consistent performer whose form figures read 11123122; won the Albany on this card 12 months ago and the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket in September; neck second, splitting Elmalka and Ramatuelle, in the 1,000 Guineas on sole run this term; holds solid claims back at Royal Ascot.

Productive, consistent and versatile during a 2yo campaign that featured 6f wins in the Albany at Royal Ascot and Cheveley Park Stakes here; creditable second over 1m in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on final outing; likely to give her running but is held by Fallen Angel on Moyglare form (finished almost 6l behind that rival).

Form & Verdict

Justify filly whose progressive 2yo campaign culminated in an impressive performance in the Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp (1m) where she drew clear for a 5l success on ground that was faster than the official good to soft; likely to be at concert pitch with reappearance (below-par third in Irish 1,000 Guineas) under her belt; remains of strong interest.

Form & Verdict

Along with Opera Singer she's a daughter of Justify; versatile ground-wise; solid record reads 1211223, most recently shaping like the best filly in a strongly run 1,000 Guineas when she was collared only in the final strides having kicked for home far too soon in hindsight (eventually ran out of steam having looked the likely winner for most of the last 2f); could well reverse placings with Elmalka and Porta Fortuna with a more delayed challenge on the cards; highly respected.

Ramatuelle

9st 2lb

J: Aurelien Lemaitre

T: Christopher Head

Notable French challenger; versatile ground-wise; developed into a smart filly last term, winning the Prix Robert Papin (Group 2) in great style then close second to excellent colt Vandeek in the Group 1 Morny (both 6f); although beaten favourite in the Imprudence (7f) on reappearance, it was a satisfactory trial considering she went down by only half a length despite taking a good hold; may settle better with the outing under her belt and a stronger pace this time; bred to stay 1m; respected on the figures.

Won at Southwell (AW) on sole 2yo start, then ran well in the Fred Darling; subsequently belied her 28-1 odds in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket (1m, good) where the cards dropped perfectly as she was favourably drawn and came from well off the strong pace (got up in the final strides); tactical matters aside, she holds major claims provided that form is backed up.

T: Roger Varian

Has shown strong promise over 7f, winning at Southwell (AW) then very close third in the Fred Darling at Newbury (good to soft; Group 3) where she finished strongly once switched for a clear run; should be well suited by this longer distance; has fair bit to find on ratings but this twice-raced and well-bred filly brings potential.

Form & Verdict

Placed in the May Hill and Fillies' Mile last term, both on soft going; form dipped sharply in good-ground 1,000 Guineas on sole start this season, as she folded tamely and ended up about 14l behind three of these rivals; needs to rebound in a huge way and can't be supported with confidence.

T: Andrew Balding

Nicely bred filly, by Sea The Stars out of a Group 1 winner for her owner; duly showed plenty of ability (on good/soft) last season, winning a maiden on the July course here then running well in the May Hill (3l second to Darnation) and Fillies' Mile (just over 1l third to Ylang Ylang); hung left each time and ideally needs to iron out that trait but otherwise is appealing, with pedigree suggesting she'll do even better as a 3yo.

5-5 in Italy last year for Stefano Botti, then kept up the good work in the Fred Darling at Newbury on debut for Marco Botti; finished behind a couple of these rivals in the Pouliches last time, losing her unbeaten record and somewhat exposing her limitations on first Group 1 attempt.

Versatile ground-wise; juvenile campaign featured a success in Curragh Group 3 and good effort at the Breeders' Cup (1m); about only 2l behind Rouhiya in the Pouliches on reappearance; useful filly but needs improvement to land this prize; yard has a much stronger chance with Opera Singer.

Form & Verdict

Prevailed narrowly in a blanket finish for steadily run Pouliches at Longchamp (1m, soft) last month, belying her big odds and taking record to 2-4; that looks below-average Classic form but the Poulains winner, a similar type, ran well (20-1 third) in the St James's Palace Stakes here on Tuesday; further progress is completely possible.
