Theo Fennell Oak Tree Stakes (Group 3) (Fillies & Mares)
Class 1 | 7f | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 17 Runners | Turf
Off time: 13:52 | Winning time: 1m 23.75s
Won this race last year and made it five wins from seven starts in a Group 3 at Lingfield on return. Had the ground as an excuse last time at Ascot and an obvious player back at this trip, though wide draw not ideal.
Two-time C&D winner. Shock winner of the 2018 1,000 Guineas but hasn't managed to replicate that performance subsequently. Got her head back in front in Listed company at Chelmsford in June but looks vulnerable back up in class.
Signed off 2018 with a Listed win in France last year but well beaten on her return at York and this is her toughest test to date. Yard do well with their fillies and may be capable of better at some stage.
Progressive when winning four times last year but progress seemingly halted this campaign and looks up against having finished down the field in a York Group 3 last time.
Just one win on turf and while she enjoyed a fruitful AW campaign this winter, there are no obvious signs she's up to this level.
Listed winner at Newmarket at the end of 2018 season and returned with a promising effort at Lingfield in May. Followed a promising effort in the Wokingham with a fair effort in a Fairyhouse Group 3 last time but more needed here.
Just one win from 10 starts, a firm ground success over 1m at Bath. Running to a consistent level in three starts this campaign including a promising effort when trying new front-running tactics at Newmarket last time. Wide draw not ideal here.
Not disgraced in the Commonwealth Cup and confirmed the promise of that run with a Group 3 success at York last time. First run at this new trip and while it's not guaranteed to suit, she's less exposed than some.
Hasn't won since an Ascot Group 3 in 2018 but in fine form this season. Followed a promising effort in the Nell Gwyn with a fourth in the 1,000 Guineas and excellent run in the Jersey when third last time; a leading player back against her own sex.
Group 2 winner as a juvenile and shaped as if she needed the run at Sandown on her return. Interesting that she's been kept in training and not one to rule out here.
Group 3 winner in France towards the end of last season. However, hasn't really gone on from that this campaign and behind a couple of these at Lingfield earlier in the season.
A winner on her debut but on a 13 run losing streak since. Posted something close to a career best last time out in Listed class but has plenty more on her plate here.
Lost her unbeaten record in the Coronation Stakes last time out but performed with great credit in defeat behind Hermosa and the winner. That's the standout form here and every chance there is more to come.
Left her debut behind when winning a novice event at Doncaster last time out and the form of that race has been boosted since. Has a big step up in class to cope with but she looks like a nice type who should improve.
Group 3 winner as a juvenile. Has gone backwards since a promising effort in the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket earlier in the year. Wide draw no help here and others make more appeal at present; down in trip.
Won her first three starts including a Group 3 at Longchamp but there are signs she hasn't trained on and failed to beat a rival home in a French Group 2 last time.
Got her head back in front in Listed when last seen in November but plenty more needed here and entitled to need the run on her return.
