Oasis Dream filly, dam a Listed winner over this trip. Showed promise on debut and confirmed that with a win at Newmarket last month. Has been slowly away on both her starts but improvement likely stepped up in trip for a yard in form.
Arrives with an unbeaten record to defend after winning her first two starts on AW. Cost plenty as a yearling ($230,000) and potentially more to come now stepped up to this trip on turf debut.
Frankel filly, dam a half-sister to 1m4f Group 1 winner in Hong Kong as well as two more pattern level performers. Stayed on to get up late on debut at Chelmsford but form of that race not particularly strong and will need more here.
Ran well when fourth of 14 in what looked like a strong maiden at Newbury last month and duly got her head in front when sent off a short price at Beverley next time. No doubt she's going to need more here though.
Confirmed odds-on favouritism at Lingfield in soft ground and ran well in defeat at Sandown later in the month, though no match for the winner. More progress likely and yard have a fine record at this course.
Justified favouritism on debut and perhaps had an excuse when too keen at Sandown last month when behind Give And Take who finished runner-up. Has a bit on to reverse the form with that rival but improvement likely if she settles better.
Outran her odds (150/1) when only beaten 6¼L in the Fillies' Mile (Group 1) at Newmarket in October and proved there was no fluke about that effort when an easy winner at Lingfield on return. May come on for that run and she's an interesting runner.
