By Invincible Spirit, 4th foal; half-sister to 7f-1m2f winner Sharja Queen , dam Listed-placed 1m winner, half-sister to 7f-1m Gr 1 winner/top sire Dubawi. Fine family so well worth following the market on debut here.

Society Rock filly, 10th foal; half-sister to winners Shrewd (7f-1m6f inc at 2 and Top Draw (7f AW); dam Group-placed 6f turf/7f AW winner. Yard having just third runner and first in UK so tough to fancy.

1000 Guineas entry by Kingman, half-sister to connections' 2018 Breeders Cup Mile winner Expert Eye. Stayed on well for third behind two runners with previous form on debut and surely can improve on that so leading player here.

Invincible Spirit filly followed three seconds (twice as favourite) last season with a Yarmouth third. Rated 85 to start this season so sets a pretty decent standard and should improve further based on pedigree.

Dubawi filly, sister to 7f-1m winner Muntazah (2yo/UAE dirt Gr 3), half-sister to winners Talayeb (7f at 2/Group 3) and Wadilsafa (1m inc Listed); dam 1m (AW 2yo) and 1m1f winner/Park Hill second. Likable pedigree so market a guide.

Played up beforehand, and looked in need of experience when 10¼L ninth of 15 to Glance in a Goodwood novice in September. Well held by Craven favourite Zakouskie next but improved to finish fifth. Another step up required here.

Well held in two AW events last autumn finishing sixth of 11 at Kempton and eighth of 11 at Chelmsford. Looks one for moderate level handicaps after this.

Bargain buy at just 2,000gns as the first foal out of an ordinary 1m AW winner. Always in rear when 10th of 13 on debut last October and can't be recommended here.

160,000gns yearling by Iffraaj; second foal; dam French 1m1f winner (inc Listed), half-sister to Listed winners Nashmiah (7f-1m2f) and Streets Ahead (1m). Distance should be fine but yard's debutantes more often than not need a run.

Filly by Lemon Drop Kid finished 4L behind more fancied Clerisy on debut when seventh of 11 at Wolverhampton in December. Crowley also prefers Ojooba so reasons to look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Ojooba (2/1), Handmaiden (5/2), Aristocratic Lady (10/3), Search For Light (6/1), Clerisy (8/1), Gentlewoman (10/1), Thakaa (25/1), Pempie (33/1), Starlight (40/1), Cala D'or (100/1), Queen Of Burgundy (150/1), Secret Treaties (150/1)

Verdict

1000 Guineas entry CLERISY will need to put in a big performance here if she is to take up that entry but this beautifully bred filly certainly showed plenty on debut at Wolverhampton in December and she ought to have learned plenty there. Handmaiden arguably boasts better form the selection after four sound efforts to date but the less exposed nature of Clerisy gives her the edge. There are a host of well-bred newcomers from big yards here and Search For Light would rate the most likely to have an impact.
