Won a Turkish Group 3 last year but well beaten on return at Royal Ascot and very much looks up against it now tried at this level.
Produced a career best effort when in foal at the Curragh, winning the third Group race of her career. Runner-up hasn't done much for the form since and she's not the most consistent sort but she has each-way claims if returning in the same mood.
Very impressive Irish 1,000 Guineas winner who backed that up with a 6L demolition of her rivals in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. That is the best form on offer here and a reproduction of that should be enough to see her land this.
Ran well in defeat in the 1,000 Guineas here when fifth but failed to build on that at Chantilly last time when well beaten. Needs more if she's going to get involved at this level.
Impressive winner of the Chevelely Park here last year over 6f, landing a third Group race in succession. However, things haven't worked out for her up in trip this campaign and proved no match for Alpha Centauri when beaten a long way last time.
Group 3 winner last year and returned to form with a Listed win at Goodwood last time. Followed up with a success in the German 1,000 Guineas but she has a bit to find at this level.
Proved to be best of the rest when runner-up to Alpha Centauri at Royal Ascot last time. Still relatively unexposed and that was a career best effort so it would be no surprise to see her chase that rival home again here.
