Four-time Group 2 winner, including in this race last year, and firmly made mark at the top level when second in Queen Anne Stakes 25 days ago. Has to carry 3lb penalty but the one beat on form.
Winner of Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes last year but refused to race in that contest this time around. Very good third in Lockinge Stakes before that and gets weight from main rivals. Untrustworthy but solid claims.
Generally reliable front-runner. Unable to land a blow in Queen Anne Stakes but got back to winning ways in 1m Listed Windsor contest last time. Needs to find more on that form but each-way claims.
Grade 1 winner in his prime and posted best effort this season when close third in 7f Group 3 at Newmarket in late June. More needed but effective at this trip and has to be respected.
Second in the 2,000 Guineas in 2018 but hasn't replicated that form since. Thrown in at the deep end on seasonal reappearance in Diamond Jubilee Stakes over 6f and will come on for that run, but limitations look exposed.
Lightly raced but Listed race winner last season. Ran too bad to be true on return to action at this track in May and posted much better effort when second at York (1m, soft) last time. E/W claims at best but remains unexposed.
Vastly improved this season, landing 1m Listed race here on seasonal reappearance before authoritative 1m Group 3 success at Epsom. That looks a weak race but no reason why he can't progress again.
Consistent filly against her own sex and most recent second in Epsom Group 3 (1m, good to firm) represents a career best effort. Another one of them needed here though in what looks a tough race.
