Took her form to a new level when winning a Group 3 over C&D last time out. May be able to continue her progression but there's some fast improving types in opposition.

Looked like an exciting prospect when putting a string of wins together at Dundalk over the winter but she's not looked as effective on turf and struggling in weaker races than this in recent starts.

Won back-to-back Group 3 races either side of the winter and ran with credit when placed at York behind a smart sort last time. This is easier and she remains capable of better down in trip.

Has won three times here already this year and put up a career best when landing a Group 3 over 1m1f last time out. Clearly thriving at present and has solid each-way claims up in grade.

Got her head back in front in Listed company at Listowel last week and has a C&D win to her name from last year when winning a valuable handicap. Much more on her plate here though and clear career best needed.

Won a Naas maiden earlier in the campaign but hasn't managed to get her head back in front since. Has struggled at a lower level than this in many of those starts and while it was a more encouraging run in a Group 3 here last time, this is tougher.

Looked like an exciting filly when winning her maiden at Gowran on just her second outing but has failed to live up to expectations on three subsequent starts and Moore prefers Broadway here.

Has proved progressive since joining this yard and not disgraced when stepped up to Listed class last time but this looks plenty tougher.

Won back to back Group 3 races at Leopardstown before a respectable run when seventh behind Alpha Centauri in Group 1 class. Capable of better up in trip here and not one to underestimate.

Betting

Forecast

Eziyra (11/8), I'm So Fancy (9/2), Beautiful Morning (11/2), Who's Steph (7/1), Broadway (9/1), Panstarr (12/1), Curly (25/1), Clear Skies (25/1), Rionach (25/1)

Verdict

Eziyra warrants plenty of respect, but given she's given to take up plenty of the market here, it might be worth taking a chance on WHO'S STEPH who wasn't disgraced in a Group 1 last time and ought to be competitive down in class here. I'm So Fancy looks well worth a crack at this grade and shouldn't be ruled out with more progress entirely feasible.
