Progressive daughter of Bated Breath, came on for seasonal reappearance when winning at Windsor (6f, good to firm; 13-8f) last month and should give a good account now tackling this grade for the first time.
Last year's 1,000 Guineas heroine at Newmarket, without a win since but takes a considerable drop in class now and dotted up only previous try on AW in a low-grade Kempton handicap.
French import with winning form, last spotted finishing 1½L second behind Spinning Memories in Listed race at Longchamp (7f, good to soft; 88/10) in May. Tongue-tied on British bow, worth market check.
Winter wins came here and at Kempton, both over this 7f trip. Beaten favourite on turf at Chester last month, hampered starts and never able to get on terms. Bounce back is possible.
Filly has plenty of useful handicap form and twice finished second over 6f around here this year already in that sphere. Can give solid account, though a surprise should she take this prize home.
Doesn't have many miles on the clock and was a C&D-winning novice in November. Won the Fillies and Mares on AW Finals Day at Lingfield on reappearance before solid third in Newmarket Listed race (6f, good to firm; 9/2). Should go well.
Went close in similar 7f Listed event at Wolverhampton on reappearance in March, has run well enough in two further starts but behind Heavenly Holly in both instances. More required.
Smart handicapper at best and has gone close in this grade before. She was slowly away and appeared to need the run at Sandown on reappearance. Others have more pressing claims.
Prolific on AW for previous yard, though was well held 25-1 chance on debut for this yard over 6f here in April and no threat since in Listed Nottingham race. Looks up against it.
Had a few of these behind when running on for excellent second in Listed Haydock race over 6f (good to firm; 6-1) last month on debut for this trainer. Stays this trip and more, interesting to see if he build on that run.
Frankel filly, three-time AW winner early in the year and twice gone well in 1m Listed events at Kempton (AW) and Goodwood (good) this spring. No reason not be on premises again.
Godolphin mare is progressing nicely, with back-to-back handicaps wins around here over 7f/1m most recently. Deserves her shot in this grade and likely to go close for in-form yard.
Fairly useful filly, though only one win from 15 career starts. Running well since joining Archie Watson, but has so far come up shy in Listed/Group 3 company and no major shock should she do so again now.
Generally a reliable AW performer. Below par on turf last time out at Nottingham. Stepping back in trip a slight for game filly and, despite hailing from an in-form yard, she's likely going to find this tough going.
