Consistent over the minimum distance in a busy two-year old campaign. Shown plenty of good form with a win and three placed efforts but tough ask to give weight to all here.

One from 12 in a busy juvenile year. Won a Bath nursery in June but was disappointing subsequently until an improved effort at Windsor on Monday. Claims if she can build on that.

Very fast pedigree being by Exceed and Excel out of a group placed sprinter. Trainer in good form but none from five with two-year olds this season. Champion jockey elect booked so worth noting market given breeding.

Full-brother to Tomily, a useful sprinter who won on AW and half-brother to dual winning sprinter Fig Roll. Trainer can get them ready first time and knows the family so a bold show no surprise.

9/1
Won on debut at Chepstow in May but out of her depth since in Group and Listed races. This far more suitable and has shown enough in some hot contests to set the bar high here. Return to 5f would be a slight concern but can handle it at this level.

Consistent although still a maiden after six starts. Equally effective on AW as shown with back to back seconds at Chelmsford. No reason she won't run her usual solid race.

Maiden of nine starts but placed in all three runs on AW. Ran well against some decent rivals in her two-year old campaign and every chance she goes well again here.

Forecast

Gold Filigree (5/6), Brandy Station (5/1), Baileys Excel (15/2), Drakefell (9/1), Debutante's Ball (9/1), National Anthem (10/1), Aquadabra (12/1), No More Commisery (12/1), Kandy Kove (14/1), Three Little Birds (20/1)

Verdict

Since winning at Chepstow, DEBUTANTE'S BALL has acquitted herself well despite being given some very tough assignments. Returning to this level, she will find things a good bit easier and ought to have enough class to win such a contest. There are several runners here with decent form who look to have some chance but it is recommended to monitor debutant Baileys Excel in the market. A faster pedigree would be hard to find and with Silvestre De Sousa booked she could easily live up to it. Of the rest Gold Filigree looks the best after a couple of good AW efforts.
  1. Debutante's Ball
  2. Baileys Excel
  3. Gold Filigree
