- British Stallion Studs EBF Nottinghamshire Oaks Stakes (Fillies' Listed) (Class 1)
- 1m 2f 50y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Probably better suited by an easier surface when enjoying a fruitful 2017. Struggled on last two starts at this level. Sets a fairly clear standard here and chance would be increased with any rain should it come.
Struggled at this level at the back-end of last year and was beaten a long way in a three-runner handicap on reappearance. Whilst she should come on for that run, this is much tougher once again.
Returned to action with an excellent effort at Ayr when finishing just ½L behind Titi Makfi three weeks ago. Should come on for that run and is likely to be very closely with that rival once again.
Close up second on first run for this yard since coming over from France in a handicap at Doncaster last week. interesting to see how she goes with possible improvement to come. Any rain would probably be welcomed.
Wellbeaten at Listed/Group 3 level so far this year. Not entirely sure this drop in trip is the right move but best of her form would put her in the mix. Champion jockey booked.
Broke her maiden at the first time of asking when successful over an extended 1m at Nottingham (good) last year. Couldn't follow that up only other start in a handicap. Off the track for 11 months and has moved from Ralph Beckett to William Haggas.
Rattled off a four-timer immediately after joining this yard but struggling to get her head in front lately. Best of her form would give her a squeak if she can return to her best.
