Finished last season with a place in Listed company and showed she's up to this level with a good third in a strong Group 3 at York. Drop in distance is ideal and she'll be better for the run. Leading contender.

Won a handicap on her second run back which has made it three wins from her last four starts. This is a big step up in class but she is progressive and could make this level in due course.

Has progressed nicely on her last two starts with a good second in handicap company and then a Listed win. That wasn't probably the strongest contest for it's grade and this represents a lot tougher task.

German raider representing a trainer who brought over the third in the Coronation Cuo. Respected on a Group 3 third and a Listed win and with an eye-catching jockey booking could be in the mix.

9/4
Not a bad return with a fourth in the Listed Buckhounds Stakes and looked as though she'd improve for the run. Already a winner at this level, however she has shown a preference for soft ground. Sets the standard if handling the quicker conditions.

Yet to prove she's up to this level and a bit to find with Cribbs Causeway from York. This is the quickest ground she's encountered and has clearly been targeting soft ground so there are questions to answer. Stable also run What A Home.

Very consistent performer who has placed in her last five starts since her breakthrough win. All those have come in handicaps at 1m6f so may not be suited by drop in trip and this is also a sharp rise in class.

Looked very promising when winning her last two of last year's campaign but was a disappointing well-backed favourite behind Titi Makfi on her reappearance. Sweated up beforehand and likely she's better than that. Could be a contender.

Forecast

God Given (9/4), Fosun (4/1), Cribbs Causeway (11/2), What A Home (6/1), Titi Makfi (6/1), Mam'selle (9/1), Euro Nightmare (11/1), Melinoe (12/1), Crimson Rosette (14/1)

Verdict

A competitive Group 3 with one or two of these fillies possibly better than this level. God Given looks the one to beat on previous form and her stable are now in much better form than when she made her reappearance. There's just the slight concern with the ground and it may pay to side with CRIBBS CAUSEWAY who should have ideal conditions now she's back in trip after looking like she was coming to challenge at this level last time before just finding the extra distance too much. German challenger Fosun adds extra intrigue while it may pay to give the talented What A Home another chance.
