Built on promising debut second to subsequent Goodwood handicap winner by scoring with plenty in hand over C&D last time. Has to concede her winner's penalty but looks sure to be in the thick of the action once again.
€240,000 Kingman filly but has looked expensive on evidence of two runs to date where never able to go the pace. First-time visor applied now and will do well to land a blow unless significantly rasing her game.
Nice run when three-length four of 12 on debut at Nottingham last season. Again stayed on after nine-month break when fourth there last month over 1m2f and extra two furlongs seems the right choice. May not be far away this time.,
Teofilo filly out of 1m1f winner makes her raceourse debut here. Bred to be a fair performer and top yard can ready one but they often improve from first to second start. Worth a market glance for any sign of confidence for last year's winning yard.
575,000 guineas daughter of Galileo, out of decent performer who won as a juvenile and in Group 3 company at three. Yard has cracking 50% strike rate (11-22) this season with its AW three-year-olds so should be seriously considered.
€125,000 Sea The Stars yearling who followed modest first effort over a mile to finish a staying-on six-length second over C&D last time Hard to see her turning it around with Illumined on only 6lb better terms but has place prospects.
Bought for just 25,000 guineas in February, she is a daughter of Frankel out of Australian Listed winner. Ran twice for John Gosden, finishing third to subsequent Oaks winner Anapurna at Lingfield in January. Debut for new connections.
Nathaniel filly who looks as though she'll appreciate step up to this 1m4f having shaped with minor promise in two runs so far. Could be one for handicaps later in campaign.
Disappointed last time at Doncaster having shown some promise when fourth in debut at Wetherby (1m2f) on debut. This daughter of Nathaniel should stay but this looks a tough assignment.
Mukhadram filly; half-sister to four individual winners. Ran with plenty of promise on debut when third at Wolverhampton over extended 1m1f, staying on well. Longer trip here will suit and has place prospects on that evidence.
