First Samurai filly, cost $125,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to four winners including a Listed winner on dirt. Justified favouritism in fine fashion in a dirt maiden at Keeneland and yard's runners worthy of the utmost respect at this meeting.
Kodiac filly, cost €80,000 as a yearling and 360,000 gns as a Breeze-up purchase. Dam a half-sister to a Listed winner. Green on debut here but made no mistake at Windsor last time. Should improve again and a leading contender here.
Bungle Inthejungle filly, cost €7,500 as a yearling. Half-sister to a juvenile winner. Narrowly beaten on debut and got her head in front on third start at Lingfield last time. That level of form would appear to be levels below what's required here.
Kuroshio filly, cost £8,000 as a yearling. Dam related to a Listed winner as a juvenile over 7f. Impressive on debut to defy inexperience at Wolverhampton and produced a game effort in defeat in a York Listed race on second start. Each-way claims.
Kyllachy filly, cost 32,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to two moderate winners over this trip. Dam a 7f winner as a juvenile. Has run with promise on each of her three runs but she would need a huge step forward to figure here.
Dream Ahead filly, half-sister to a juvenile winner. Dam a half-sister to a Group 1 winning sprinter. Has won both her starts in France getting the better of her stablemate last time out over 6f. Might not want 5f on fast ground on that evidence.
Morpheus filly, cost £17,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to seven winners and dam a juvenile winner over sprint trips. Well beaten on debut at Wolverhampton and hard to imagine her figuring in this contest.
Scat Daddy filly, cost $500,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to five winners including a Grade 3 winner over 6f. Didn't need to improve from her second start to win at Navan last time and showed plenty of speed. Should go well.
Haatef filly, dam a winner over 1m. Improving with each start and outran her odds at Salisbury last time in heavy ground. This will prove to be a completely different test on contrasting ground though.
Kodiac filly, cost £180,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to a juvenile Listed winner over this trip and dam Group placed as a juvenile over the trip. Improved from her debut at Nottingham to win at Beverley last week. Should continue to improve.
Kuroshio filly, half-sister to four winners including Prix de l'Abbaye winner. Did it the hard way from the front at Sandown on debut and will have learnt plenty from that. Should go well for a yard that do well with sprinters.
Garswood filly, cost 45,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to a winner and dam a Listed winner over 5f as a juvenile. All speed in her pedigree and while Carlisle win on debut isn't the strongest form, the yard are flying and improvement likely.
Scat Daddy filly, cost $500,000 as a yearling. Full-sister to winner and half-sister to five more including a 6f Grade 3 winner. Ran well at Thirsk last time out, making all. Must find more here though and won't be able to dominate these rivals.
Kyllachy filly, cost £28,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to a sprint winner. Dam a juvenile winner as a juvenile and half-sister to two Group 3 winners. Only beaten by a more experienced sort last time in a decent race at Musselburgh. Should improve.
Dawn Approach filly, cost 22,000 gns as a yearling. Dam Group placed as a juvenile in a sprint. Improved from a very promising debut with a more professional effort at Catterick, winning by 6L. Trainer does well with these sorts.
No Nay Never filly, cost €50,000 as a yearling. Pedigree points to her wanting further than this and she was impressive when winning a Listed race at Naas last time. Form franked since and stiff track will help with the trip.
Kodiac filly, cost 110,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a Listed winner over 1m4f. Impressive C&D winner here on debut and had Come On Leicester in behind as well as another subsequent winner. Should go well for last year's winning yard.
Society Rock filly, cost £11,000 as Breeze-up purchase. Dam a half-sister to a Group 3 winner. Confirmed the promise of her debut run when winning at Catterick last time but has much more on her plate and seemingly second string on jockey bookings.
Camacho filly, cost 20,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to six winners including three pattern placed performers. Shock winner of a Listed race over this trip last time and plenty to like about that effort. Should carry on improving.
Kodiac filly, cost €40,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to 6f Listed winner. Winner on debut and finished behind a couple of these in a Listed race at York last time but this is clearly tougher and may struggle to reverse the York form alone.
Scat Daddy filly, cost $400,000 as a yearling. All speed in her pedigree and produced an impressive effort on debut. Beaten at odds on by Servalan in Listed class last time over 6f but drop in trip on this ground sure to suit. Yard's first-string.
Toronado filly, cost €25,000 as a yearling. Dam a juvenile sprint winner. Produced an improved performance in a Navan maiden last time but looks up against it here.
