7/2

66/1 1,000 Guineas winner last year but didn't really kick on from that success and well beaten when last seen in a Group 1. This is a welcome drop in class though and she's interesting if ready to go on return here.

Listed winner at Goodwood last year but struggled in deeper company subsequently. This doesn't look a particularly strong event for the grade though and could get an easy lead here.

Listed winner at Lingfield in November but well beaten last of 12 back at that venue for AW Finals Day. Yard in excellent form though and a return to fast ground on turf could help.

Won her maiden here and landed a Group 3 race at Sandown subsequently. Still unexposed and likely capable of better this year so much have solid claims here.

Has won four of her last five, though did find Group 1 company too tough last time out. Returns from an absence and may do better this season; less exposed than some.

Betting

Forecast

Veracious (5/4), Worth Waiting (3/1), Billesdon Brook (7/2), Nyaleti (11/2), Rasima (16/1), Shenanigans (20/1)

Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute is often patient with his fillies and VERACIOUS could be hard to beat on her return if she's improved from when she was last seen. Billesdon Brook has to be considered if she can get back to somewhere near the level she was at on this last year. The field wouldn't want to let Nyaleti loose on the front end and she's seen to best effect when able to dominate.
