30/100
Holds Group 1 entries in the Pretty Polly and the Irish Oaks. Was touted for the Oaks after a highly impressive turn of foot to win a Listed race over C&D but bypassed Epsom to give her more time. Will take a lot of beating in this grade.

Three wins last season and back to form on quick ground when a neck second in handicap company. Ran on as though this trip is worth a go but this is tougher up in class.

Improved from her debut when making all over a mile on her second start. Kept on well and she should stay this trip. Has never encountered ground this quick but looks a filly with potential.

Third of six in first time blinkers (retained) when upped to this trip in a Listed contest last time. That didn't look the strongest race for this grade and this will be tougher.

9/1
Won a maiden in a quick time following a promising debut last season. She should improve for this quicker ground and step up in trip and was always looked likely to improve with age. Could run a big race.

Third in last two Listed runs including the Cheshire Oaks last time. Vulnerable to an improving type but likely to run her race again at this level.

Progressed nicely in three runs this season and beat Daddies Girl by a neck last time. Stable in great form and seemed suited by these conditions but this is much tougher.

Forecast

Sea of Class (30/100), Princess Yaiza (7/1), Mrs Sippy (9/1), Shailene (16/1), Rasima (20/1), Herecomesthesun (25/1), Dramatic Queen (33/1), Daddies Girl (50/1)

Verdict

The presence of the very exciting SEA OF CLASS adds some intrigue to this contest as she looked a filly going to the very top when winning at this level on just her second start. Quoted in some places in single figures for the Oaks she looked a realistic Classic contender and still could be elsewhere with a win here. Stablemate Dramatic Queen could get in the money too after also breaking through on her second start. Princess Yalza is already proven at this level and while she may find one too good again she should once more be in contention. Don't discount Mrs Sippy finding dramatic improvement this season and can run a place.
  1. Sea of Class
