7f maiden winner at Glorious Goodwood (third-placed Lady Cosette runs in the opener); significantly bettered that form since with her Group 3 second to Antonio De Vega (7f Prestige Stakes); progressive and worthy of respect on first attempt at 1m.

Sister to the 7f winner Noble Masterpiece; connections aim their sights higher after back-to-back all the way wins at Nottingham (extended mile) and Thirsk (1m); clearly a hardy filly, and she'll not be at all troubled by the recent rainfall.

Frankel filly (half-sister to the 7f-1m winner Petticoat); 3/1 when making a winning debut at Newmarket in August (7f fillies novice stakes); plenty of raw potential on paper and most likely capable of better, but that is required in this race.

Comfortable Yarmouth winner (7f, good to firm) on her penultimate start, but forced to chase home the unbeaten (107-rated) Boitron in a Listed contest at Newbury last month; first attempt on a softer surface, and facing her toughest test yet.

Narrow winner at Limerick on debut (7f); this €100,000 yearling bounced back from a tame effort in a Group 3 (6f) on her next start, with a 3L third to a pair of more fancied stablemates (including Peach Tree) at The Curragh (1m) recently.

Readily accounted for Winter Light (runs in the opener) when making all to score at Newbury (6f maiden); held her own (sixth of eight) in the 7f Group 3 Prestige Stakes latest - fine margins to find with runner-up Accordance.

180,000gns yearling; has hit the target on two of her four starts so far (6f-7f); bolted up by 6L at Brighton earlier this month in a 7f Class 4 novice (good to firm), so is worthy of a crack at this Group 2 contest.

Stablemate of Fleeting, and had the measure of that filly when runner-up at The Curragh (7f) recently; by Galileo, and a sister to the 1m2f-1m4f winner Flattering, this extra yardage and softer ground shouldn't prove problematic; solid claims.

Oasis Dream filly who looked to have a bright future when winning with a fair bit in hand on debut at Kempton (7f) last month; that bare form needs improving upon, but it's early days and interesting to see how she handles the switch to turf.

Arrives seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back 7f wins at Newbury (maiden) and Newmarket (nursery); improving, and has previous Doncaster experience (6f), but needs to scale new heights in order to even make the frame; trainer doubly represented.

3L runner-up to today's rival Divinity on debut at Nottingham (1m+), and bravely off the mark just a fortnight later on the Kempton Polytrack (1m); faces a much stiffer test today and is predicted to struggle; stablemate of Star Terms.

Betting

Forecast

Dubai Beauty (11/8), Peach Tree (6/1), Dutch Treat (7/1), Accordance (11/1), Fleeting (12/1), Star Terms (12/1), Sand Share (14/1), Magnetic Charm (16/1), Divinity (16/1), Miss Celestial (25/1), Sweet Pearl (40/1)

Verdict

Both Sand Share and Dubai Beauty made promising winning debuts, with the latter undoubtedly sporting the sexier pedigree (daughter of Frankel). However, both horses need to take significant strides forward (entirely possible) in this much stronger race. Accordance (second) and Magnetic Charm (sixth) are closely matched on their Prestige Stakes form so it'll be interesting to see which of the duo is best suited by today's extra furlong. Therefore, the likeliest winner would appear to be the Aidan O'Brien trained PEACH TREE. She got the better of her stablemate Fleeting in a 1m Group 3 at The Curragh, only to find the 107-rated Just Wonderful stronger.
