10/1

€85,000 yearling; first foal from a well related, but unraced dam; hails from a respected source of juvenile winners (stable 2yo's 40-276 (14%) in 2018), so interesting to see how she fares in the betting.

7/1

Unraced first foal by Mastercraftsman, out of a maiden dam (1m-1m4f); trainer continuing to knock in a steady stream of winners, but owner also represented by Blue Gardenia.

33/1

€25,000 yearling; has the benefit of previous experience, albeit appearing to be very green when finishing seventh of nine at Carlisle (6f, good to firm; 33/1) in June; steps up 2f in trip.

4/6

Frankel filly who is a half-sister to two winners (6f-1m); started 5/2f, but looked in need of the experience when finishing sixth on debut at Goodwood (7f, Class 2) recently; this rates as an easier assignment, so should be highly competitive.

9/2

16,000 gns foal; third foal of an Italian winning (1m1f-1m2f) dam; half-sister to a couple of winners including Maybe Today (1m2f); others potentially more interesting, but the market should be informative.

11/1

$77,000 yearling; €270,000 juvenile; fifth foal out of the US stakes-placed 6f winner Stroll By; half-sister to US 5f turf winner March On; weakened on debut at Ascot last month (7f) and ideally needs to have strengthened up for that race.

Betting

Forecast

Mehdaayih (4/6), Quintada (9/2), Arctic Fox (7/1), Eucalyptus (7/1), Amorously (10/1), Teresita Alvarez (11/1), Blue Gardenia (20/1), Laura Louise (33/1)

Verdict
Plenty of unknown commodities, so following the market moves with regards the newcomers looks to be the best piece of advice. However, what we do know already is that this race on paper is much less competitive than the Goodwood Maiden Fillies' contest (Class 2) in which MEHDAAYIH made her debut in last month. She was well supported in the market that day (sent off 5/2f) and despite finishing only sixth of eleven to Accordance, didn't shape without a degree promise, so even minimal natural progression could prove enough today.
  1. Mehdaayih
  2. Eucalyptus
