Form & Verdict

High-class form at three particularly at 1m4f, frustrating that she failed to win but achieved Group 1 seconds in the Irish Oaks and at Ascot; also made the frame in three races won by the Irish-trained Warm Heart; off to a flying start this term with an emphatic Group 2 win at York; might prefer a little further but can continue to prosper with confidence boosted.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly failed to win the 2022 Oaks, but ended that season with Group 1 triumph at Ascot; made a winning reappearance in last season's Coronation Cup; flopped in the King George following second to Paddington in the Eclipse; ran respectably in the Dubai Sheema Classic in March; needs to provide reassurance now after a tame run in the Coronation Cup.

9st 6lb

J: Frankie Dettori

T: John & Thady Gosden

Unraced on soft/heavy, acts on any other ground; pulled too hard in this contest 12 months ago, the only major blip in her otherwise progressive career; took well to a hood in next two appearances, showing a tidy turn of foot to win this year's Coronation Cup at Epsom (1m4f) on second occasion; close second to remarkable 3yo Paddington in a thrilling Eclipse at Sandown when dropped back to 1m2f with the headgear removed (it's again missing today); leading claims, provided she settles adequately returned to 1m4f.

Juvenile campaign featured a 1m course Group 3 win and good effort at the Breeders' Cup; not beaten far in eighth behind Rouhiya in the Pouliches on reappearance; failed to settle well and ended up in the rear when stable's second-string in the Coronation Stakes.

Form & Verdict

Has won only twice but has strong form, including Ribblesdale second last year (Bluestocking third); improved with cheekpieces to land Group 2 Blandford Stakes over C&D in September; third in Prix de l'Opera, not disgraced in sixth behind Inspiral at Breeders' Cup; made little impression in Tattersalls Gold Cup on return; cheekpieces left off then, back on now.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up at 25-1 in this race 12 months ago despite not getting a clear run at a vital stage; not beaten far in the Yorkshire Oaks or the Prix de l'Opera before unsuited by soft ground on Champions' Day; justified reprieve from retirement with Group 2 defeat of Roaring Lion at Newmarket in May; runner-up flopped at Epsom before redeeming herself at Royal Ascot.

J: David Egan

T: Hughie Morrison

Listed/Group 3 winner; her final four runs of last season were at the top table, the best of them when runner-up in the Pretty Polly at the Curragh (1m2f, good); the tongue-tie tried that day was retained afterwards and she wasn't beaten far in either the Yorkshire Oaks (1m4f) or the Prix de l'Opera (1m2f) before unsuited by soft ground on Champions' Day; at this lower level she's a strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Winner of three of her six races when trained in France, and third in the Prix de Diane, a notable addition to the Prescott stable but this is a very hot race for her reappearance; ended last term with a clear-cut win in 1m2f Listed race on soft at Compiegne.

Uneven form in four starts last year; put up a clear career-best when running away with a 1m1f Fairyhouse fillies' Group 3 in September; excellent run on return over C&D in Group 3 Alleged Stakes when just a neck behind White Birch; plenty to prove now after last of five behind the same talented colt in Group 2 Mooresbridge Stakes.

Was hit and miss in four starts last year but put up a clear career-best when running away with a 1m1f Fairyhouse fillies' Group 3 last September; excellent run on return over C&D in Group 3 Alleged Stakes when just a neck behind White Birch; 3lb better off today, so a big chance.
