12/1

Group 3 winner on return getting the better of re-opposing Expert Eye and won a Group 2 as a juvenile. Did all his best work in the finish at Haydock last time out but may struggle to concede weight to all in this field.

Won at Newmarket on debut before landing a Group 3 in France. Well beaten twice since though and this is no easier.

Impressive winner when getting up late at Chester last month but struggled in a handicap at Goodwood last time and looks set to struggle up at this level.

Kodiac colt, cost €170,000 as a foal and dam a Listed winner. Impressive winner on debut last month and very interesting he's dropped in at this level on just his second start. Big step forward needed.

Well beaten in Listed company on return and didn't need to improve to justify odds-on favouritism at Carlisle last time. Much more needed here and seemingly out of his depth.

Ran a huge race at this meeting last year when not beaten far in the Coventry. Form tailed off after that run for 2017 but has returned in good heart this year and justified favouritism at Naas last time out in Listed class. Not ruled out.

Justified favouritism at Newcastle on return and only just touched off at Goodwood last time by Society Power. Likely to reverse the form on more favourable terms this time and may improve for even quicker ground. Leading player.

Won his first two starts in good style including a Group 2 at Goodwood in August. However, he's been very hit and miss since and he disappointed in the 2,000 Guineas last time. Yard likely to get the best out of him at some point.

Runner-up in the Coventry last year and got up late at Lingfield in Listed company on AW recording a fast closing sectional time on seasonal return. Beaten out of sight in the 2,000 Guineas last time and needs to bounce back.

50/1

US raider who won his first couple of starts as a juvenile and returned to form with a win over 6½f last time. Suspicion that level of form is below what's required here but yard's record at the meeting certainly makes him tough to rule out.

Well backed and was no match for his rivals in a Listed race at Epsom last time out on soft ground. More needed in this company and won't find it as easy to dominate these rivals.

Impressive 3L winner on his return to action at Sandown this year and ran a huge race in the Dante at York last time. Could be even more to come if he settles better early here and not ruled out if coping with the drop back in trip.

Produced an encouraging run on return on AW and came on for that, winning his next two races at Newmarket including a Listed contest last time. Will need to keep on progressing but trainer/jockey had three winners here yesterday and not dismissed.

Narrowly touched off on his debut but he's won each of his five starts since. There's a suspicion he may struggle to confirm the form with Emaraaty on worse terms here though.

Won a handicap at Newmarket on second start this season and not disgraced in the Irish 2,000 Guineas when last seen. That form not done many favours here on Tuesday but their could be more to come down in trip here and unexposed.

Unbeaten in two starts and an impressive winner of a novice event last time out under a penalty. However, form of that race has been let down since and retained jockey prefers Emaraaty.

Has showed signs of inexperience on both his runs to date and didn't need to improve from debut win to make it two from two at Lingfield last time. Sizable step forward needed here but entirely unexposed and not ruled out.

Got off the mark in a Dundalk maiden and put up an outstanding effort from the front in the Irish 1,000 Guineas last time when only just caught on the line. That just about sets the standard on form and more progress likely.

Progressive as a juvenile but she was well beaten in the 1,000 Guineas and still struggled when dropped to Listed class last time. Needs to learn to settle better.

Betting

Forecast

Emaraaty (4/1), Could It Be Love (11/2), Expert Eye (8/1), Society Power (8/1), Purser (9/1), Tabdeed (10/1), James Garfield (12/1), Headway (12/1), Symbolization (14/1), St Patrick's Day (14/1), Walk In The Sun (20/1), Brother Bear (22/1), Glorious Journey (25/1), Lake Volta (33/1), Nebo (33/1), Arabian Coast (40/1), Hemp Hemp Hurray (50/1), Merlin Magic (50/1), Eirene (66/1), Another Batt (66/1), Madeline (66/1), Arbalet (100/1), Tangled (100/1)

Verdict

COULD IT BE LOVE was only just run down late on in the Irish 1,000 Guineas last time out and there's every chance that this filly will go on from that run. Emaraaty should reverse the form with Society Power now better off at the weights and may do best of the rest but stablemate to the selection, St Patrick's Day, shouldn't be ruled out if ready to go on return to action after an impressive win when last seen at Del Mar.
