Soft ground winner at Salisbury two starts back and only narrowly denied when favourite at Goodwood last time. Plenty of work to do on first start in Listed company.

Listed winner at Newmarket last year and just about a career best when runner-up in a Group 3 at Goodwood last time out. Drop back in trip is no issue and she's run well on soft ground before. First-time visor goes on.

Made it three wins from seven starts when dropped back down in class at Bath last month and produced a creditable effort in a Listed race at Chester last time out. Fascinating contender for yard in form.

Impressive strike-rate of five wins from 10 turf stats and won with any amount in hand at Haydock last time in handicap company. Proven on soft ground and while she's the second string on jockey bookings, another career best is a possibility.

Won the valuable sales race at York last year and showed she had trained on when placed in a Group 3 at that venue last month. Best efforts have come on fast ground though.

Only beaten a head in the Queen Mary last year and followed up a Listed win in France with a narrow defeat in a Group 3 at York last time (Red Ballons third). Just about sets the standard here.

Sole win to date came in a novice event at Ripon. Perhaps flattered by a third in a Listed race in France judged on two subsequent efforts and showed nothing when tailed off at Goodwood on return.

Appreciated the drop in class at Newmarket two starts back but couldn't build on that in Listed company in France since. Vulnerable again in a deeper race here.

Improved from novice company to win a Listed race at Carlisle and arrives here bidding for a hat-trick. Drop in trip should be no concern and won't mind any rain that falls.

Betting

Forecast

Perfection (5/2), Shades Of Blue (11/4), Tapisserie (9/2), Princes Des Sables (11/2), Sunday Star (10/1), Red Balloons (12/1), Last Empire (12/1), Miss Celestial (20/1), Stage Play (33/1), Maygold (40/1), Yolo Again (66/1)

Verdict

PERFECTION recorded a career best when only narrowly denied at Pattern level at Goodwood last time and both a drop in class and first-time headgear are positives for the four-year-old filly. Shades Of Blue is another who wasn't beaten far in Group 3 company last time out and she ought to go well again. Tapisserie and Last Empire are both respected in their hat-trick bids.
