- 1m 1f 201y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Won a Group 2 in Meydan in the early spring and has been highly tried since. Failed to take advantage of a good opportunity dropped to this level at Pontefract last time. Conditions ideal and has sound claims once again.
Won this race last year but hasn't really fired in any of her four starts so far this term. Needs to up her game back here and if anything this is a stronger renewal that last year.
Only two starts so far this year and she faded when trying to make the running in the Wolferton at Royal Ascot last time. Fitness should be assured now and her best pieces of form give her a major shout in here.
Won three times at a lower level than this when trained by Damien De Watrigant in France. Didn't get the clearest of runs on stable debut at Goodwood last time but was ultimately well beaten. Market check needed.
Picked up a Listed contest at Nottingham two starts back but struggled in a better race on the AW at Newcastle last time. This is a deep race for the grade so she will need to improve to be involved at the business end.
Looked in need of the run on her reappearance at York last month. Previous efforts in Listed company and Group 3's last year give her sound claims of being involved here. Hold up performer who will hope there is plenty of pace on.
Nice winner at Sandown on her second start. No disgrace in finishing third to the very good Sea Of Class at Newbury next time and having been given a short break she is a major contender here with Ryan Moore on board.
C&D winner who has been thriving of late having won a novice event and a couple of handicaps. This requires another step forward but is on an upward curve and can't be dismissed with further improvement likely.
