Twice a winner last season as a three-year-old but made an underwhelming return to action when 14L sixth in 1m6f York Group 3. Entitled to strip fitter for that run but this is another tough ask.
Form has been taken to a new level this season and bounced back from disappointing Haydock effort on penultimate start to finish second in similar contest at Pontefract (1m4f, good) last time. Place claims.
Not disgraced on first start for new yard when 3L fifth in Cork Group 3 over this distance in June. Unlikely to have been fully tuned up that day and entitled to come on for that run. On the shortlist.
Goodwood Listed winner last season but has struggled to replicate that form since. Recent fourth of eight in Haydock Group 3 (1m4f, heavy) was a step back in the right direction and claims if finding best form.
Winner at Chelmsford City on final start last season but was found wanting in this company when 13L fourth in weak Listed contest at Ayr (1m4f). This is more deep and others have better claims.
Likeable victory at Goodwood on seasonal debut but couldn't progress from that run when fourth in 1m4f Pontefract Listed contest. Dance Legend was second that day and has a bit to find with that rival to be competitive.
Listed winner last year who has been highly tried in two starts this season. Fifth in the Group 3 Musidora Stakes in May before 11L ninth in the Oaks. This is likely to be her level but vulnerable to progressive rivals.
Winner at Wolverhampton on debut during the winter but failed to show improvement when second in 1m2f Chelmsford novice on latest start. Form of that looks weak and leaves a lot to be desired.
Off the mark at the third attempt when landing 1m4f novice contest on the Rowley Mile in May. Won with something in hand that day but that race looks weak and more progression required to be competitive.
Defied inexperience on debut when a ready winner of 1m4f Ascot maiden in May. Form of that race looks moderate at best but the most unexposed in the field and could be anything. Interesting contender.
Outran her odds in her last two starts, most recently when fifth at 66/1 in Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot. Will be more at comfort in listed company today. Place claims.
Put poor Musidora run behind her when staying on well to finish third in Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot on latest start. That sets the form standard in a winnable contest. The one to beat.
