Surprise winner on the AW at Chelmsford first time out then much more convincing when scoring readily over C&D (soft) in a fillies auction. Much stiffer task now but dangerous to dismiss with the ground in her favour.

Faultless in her first three starts over 6f, proving her class when winning a Listed event over 6f here (good to soft) last month. Has since finished a clear second behind the impressive Nylaleti in an Ascot Group 3, so big chance if this step up to 7f suits.

Off the mark at the second attempt when capturing a 6f Haydock maiden on soft ground. Possible limitations exposed when well down the field in an Ascot Group 3 (6f, good to firm) since, though step up 7f on an easy surface may improve her.

Finished 2¼ adrift of Poetic Charm on her debut over C&D (good to firm) but improved to score over 7f at Ascot (good to soft) next time. Clearly going the right way but would need a big step forward to prevail in this grade.

Looking expensive at €235,000, having failed to win in her first three starts, including when beaten 1¼ behind Poetic Charm over C&D (good to firm). Finally obliged in a weak-looking novice event at Thirsk last time but others more persuasive here.

Cork maiden winner over 5f (good to firm) who has held her own in better company since, most notably when finishing a 2¼ third behind Clemmie in a Group 2 over 6f here last month. Shapes as though 7f will suit, though unproven on an easy surface.

Cost €160,000 and, despite a lack of market confidence, scored in good style on her debut over 6f at Newbury (good to soft). Form of that race has taken a couple of knocks since but respected for a yard which won this race last year.

A half-sister to the Group 1 winner Teofilo and looks an exciting prospect in her own right on the evidence of a smooth debut win over C&D (good to firm), leaving three subsequent winners trailing in her wake. Obvious claims if handling slower ground.

Debutant winner over 6f here (good to soft) before disappointing here next time, only to get her career back on track with a game Listed win at Sandown (7f, good to soft) from Capomento. One of two representatives from last year's winning yard, respected.

Betting

Forecast

Poetic Charm (11/4), Dance Diva (3/1), Capla Temptress (5/1), Mamba Noire (7/1), Tajaanus (10/1), Mayyasah (12/1), Ertiyad (16/1), Jousi (16/1), Juliet Capulet (20/1)

Verdict

Dance Diva and Mamba Noire - each placed in Group company - set the standard form-wise but it's hard to escape the claims of POETIC CHARM. Charlie Appleby's filly looked an exciting prospect when prevailing over C&D on her debut last month and, providing she handles slower ground, everything in her pedigree suggests that a Listed event of this nature should be well within her range. Elsewhere, Richard Hannon captured this prize 12 months ago and saddles two live contenders in the shape of Mayyasah and Tajaanus.
  1. Poetic Charm
  2. Dance Diva
  3. Mayyasah

Tips

Ken Condon on Mamba Noire: "Our filly will be stepping up to seven furlongs on Saturday, but the way she's finished her last two races is very encouraging. If there's a bit of ease in the ground I think that would suit her.

"The ground was just too quick for her in Ascot, but she did well physically after that to come out fairly quickly and ran a good race behind Clemmie at the Curragh.

"We felt it was an improved performance again at Newmarket and obviously the form looks very good.

"Nyaleti has obviously come out and won very well and I know the boys at Ballydoyle hold Clemmie in very high regard. She looks a Classic filly in the making. She's come home well in her last two races, so we'll see how she gets on over seven furlongs."

Marco Botti on Capla Temptress: "She seems well and we've been happy with her since Newmarket.

"This is a step up in class, obviously, but she was quite impressive the other day and after two runs and two wins she's entitled to take her chance.

"I don't think she's ground dependent, but being by Lope De Vega, she probably handles cut in the ground better than others. I'm looking forward to running her and finding out how good she is."

Richard Fahey on Dance Diva: "She has taken her racing extremely well and is a filly who has done nothing wrong. We hope the step up to seven furlongs will bring about a bit of improvement here. If it does, she must have a leading chance.

Chris Richardson, of owners Cheveley Park Stud's other runner Juliet Capulet: "uliet Capulet is a progressive filly and John is very sweet on her. We bought her to run in races like this and it will be interesting to see how she performs."

Tony Nerses, racing manager to Jousi's owners Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar: "We think quite highly of her and I think she'll outrun her price. She's bred very nicely, by Dubawi out of a Galileo mare who was a Listed winner, so she'll go on the ground. She might surprise a few."
