Progressive Shamardal filly on the AW, has twice come up short in Listed company recently (including on turf). British raider may find one or two of these stronger, though improved form not ruled out.
Gained second success in Listed company over 7f at Musselburgh (good to soft) last month though well held since in Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot. Has gone close in this company before, though law of averages points elsewhere.
Went close in Lingfield Group 3 on seasonal/stable debut in May and ran a respectable race when seventh in Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot last time. Solid claims for trainer who progresses with older horses.
Mare was a Listed winner over 7f at Naas (good to firm; 5-1) in May and has held her form without winning in two runs since. Standard-setter on ratings, respected player.
Filly has improved to win at Gowran Park and over C&D on last two starts, conceivably has more to offer again, albeit this should demand further improvement.
Galileo filly, only a Tipperary maiden win over 7½f last summer to show from 10 starts. Well fended off in Group 3 Jersey Stakes last time, but can bounce back here and looks pick of Ballydoyle trio.
Scat Daddy filly, had some promising two-year-old form in pattern races; hasn't exactly built on that this year but far from disgraced and could be more to come now upped in distance for powerful yard.
Filly has twice come up short in this grade at the Curragh and Leopardstown, has plenty to find on a few of these rivals seemingly and not a leading contender on the formbook, despite connections.
