Form & Verdict

She's 0-5 in Group races and 3lb worse off with Adaay In Devon compared to Sandown (5f, good to soft; Listed) last month, when beaten a head into second by that rival; however, she ran on strongly and this second crack at 6f is well worth a go; possible improver.

Form & Verdict

Made it two Listed wins for the season when defying 3lb penalty at Sandown (5f, good to soft) last month, and she's also effective at 6f; this is a tougher test of her credentials but she can give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in 2yo Group 3 at Ayr (6f, good to soft) last year and went one better at same level at Lingfield (7f, good) in May; that latest race was modest for the grade and she's penalised 3lb, but she had to wait for a clear run and is lightly raced; could have plenty more left in the tank.

Improving with every run, finishing second in Group 3 at Ayr (6f, good to soft) on final 2yo start and showing she's trained on well when fourth of seven in similar event at Deauville (7f, heavy; form has been boosted) last month; may not have reached her ceiling and she's a major player.

Creditable fourth in this race last year (good) and Listed winner at Ayr (5.5f, good to soft) next time; below par on last month's reappearance at Haydock but may have needed the run and 5f was on the sharp side; chance.

Gained an overdue second win in handicap at Ripon (6f, good to soft) three weeks ago; down the field in this last year and has something to find now back up in grade, but she's unexposed at this trip and it's possible she'll have more to offer now things have clicked; ran well here last August.

Something to prove on grass having been well beaten on turf debut in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago; however, she drops in grade today and shouldn't be written off, having comfortably completed a four-timer in a Listed race at Chelmsford (6f, AW) in May.

Consistent in defeat in 2yo Group 3 races last season over 6f/7f on varying ground; improved form when winning the Group 3 Nell Gwyn on reappearance (7f, good) then failed to stay in the 1,000 Guineas; carries a 3lb penalty today but is not ruled out now back down in trip.

Beaten in major races won by Porta Fortuna, Sacred Angel and Darnation last summer but looked an improved filly in the Nell Gwyn here (7f, good) on reappearance, gamely beating Dance Sequence by a neck; supplemented for this contest at a cost of £30,000; may well build on her trial win provided she stays the new trip (mixed messages in pedigree on that score).

Form & Verdict

Career-best effort when near-2l third to Funny Story in Listed race at Newmarket (6f, soft) last October; the expected return to slow ground is a plus following two below-par efforts on good going this season, and she has first-time headgear, but she's down the pecking order on form.

Form & Verdict

Soft-ground 6f Listed winner on final 3yo start and a Listed runner-up on both outings this year, behind Unequal Love at Newmarket (6f, good) and Raqiya at Salisbury (6f, good); she's better off at the weights with both of those reopposing rivals today and could be firmly in the mix.

J: Rossa Ryan

T: Ralph Beckett

Steadily progressive last season, going down narrowly in Listed race at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) and winning similar event over C&D (soft) on her final start; carries a penalty but still has solid form claims; leading contender if ready to roll after seven months off.
