Maiden winner at Catterick on sole two-year-old start in soft ground. Struggled upped in class at Naas on return and yard have been a little quiet in recent weeks.

Impressive winner of a fillies' maiden at Kempton back in November, staying on well and improved on that to win a Group 3 here last month over 7f. That effort can be upgraded, having over-raced in the early stages of the race and the way she put the race to bed was impressive. Could take another step for ward and holds leading claims. Trainer and jockey in excellent form and they have a fine strike-rate of 31.7% around here.

Former Godolphin inmate sold to these connections for £22,000. Showed nothing on debut here and tongue-tie reached for. Unlikely to be capable of enough improvement to see her trouble the judge here.

Won an Ascot Group 3 well enough last season but failed twice in follow-up bids at York and here when long odds-on. Hard not to be disappointed with those efforts and needs to have improved over the winter if she's to get involved here.

Became the bridesmaid a little last year but stayed on gamely to win a Group 3 at Leopardstown on comeback run. That was impressive and deserves her place in this line up, but she looks down the order in terms of jockey bookings and not impossible she'll be on pace-making duties.

Excellent winner of the Moyglare (Group 1) last year before a slightly disappointing effort in the Breeders Cup. Probably not suited by the tight nature of that track and may have needed her comeback run at Leopardstown last month. Looks well suited by the straight mile and no surprise to see her bounce back.

Won a Group 3 at Goodwood last year but has been a little disappointing in two efforts since. Too keen to do herself justice here on return last month and should give a better account now but she is more exposed than most in here and may struggle to raise her game to the level required.

Improved on her debut effort to land a fast ground Salisbury maiden and stepped up on that effort to take a Group 3 over 7f in October. She over-raced at Newmarket on return and struggled to last home; she has her work cut out if she is to turn the tables with Daban.

Caused a shock to beat Fair Eva in the Lowther Stakes at York last year and not at her best here towards the end of last year. Looked a little rusty on her comeback run at Newbury and should come on for that effort but she probably has a bit too much to find with the principles to be considered for win purposes.

Comfortably beat Hydrangea in a Group 1 over C&D at the end of last season and those two pulled way clear of the field. That looks like the best piece of form on offer and she has followed the same path as last year's winner, Minding, to get here. She will probably improve further for a step up in trip but she should be right there for a trainer/jockey combination that won this last year.

Impressive winner on debut when beating a better fancied stablemate and was the subject of some market support that day. Form of that race not really worked out but front two finished clear and she could have plenty more to give this season so it will be interesting to see what the market makes of her. Trainer has a relatively poor strike-rate with horses returning from a break but surely tuned up for this and jockey rides this course well.

Improving a little with every start and finished a very good second to Daban in a Group 3 here last time out Shaped like she'd stay this trip but may struggle to turn the form around with the winner who is likely to have improvement in her.

Finished a distant third behind Rhododendron and Hydrangea in Group 1 over C&D towards the end of last year and fair runner-up effort in a Group 3 last time out, never troubling the winner. Trainer does well with his fillies and yard have come into form in recent weeks but suspicion is that she'll struggle to turn around the Group 1 form with the O'Brien fillies.

Holds different form-lines to most in this field having won her maiden at Dundalk. Only just failed to reel in Hydrangea at Leopardstown on return and raced keenly in the early stages so may come on for that if she settles better here. May be able to turn the form with that rival and has placed over 1m at Gowran Park so not ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Rhododendron (5/4), Daban (5/1), Fair Eva (8/1), Winter (9/1), Hydrangea (9/1), Talaayeb (11/1), Poet's Vanity (20/1), Intricately (20/1), Unforgetable Filly (25/1), Queen Kindly (33/1), Urban Fox (50/1), Kilmah (100/1), Ce La Vie (150/1), Dream Start (200/1)

Verdict

Rhododendron will no doubt prove popular with punters after her impressive display when last seen winning over C&D here and she's the pick of stable jockey Ryan Moore, but it's the progressive DABAN who shades the vote and may prove to be a little more value. She refused to settle for the first half of her race here last month, but the way she picked up entering the final furlong was impressive and she was well on top at the line, with another chunk of improvement likely, she should go close. This also looks a more suitable test for Intricately who may be able to bounce back after a below par comeback run.
