100/1

Beaten a long way in two starts for this yard having not been since 2016 prior to last month's reappearance. Hard to fancy on all known form but he's well bred at least.

Produced a promising fourth as a juvenile. Withdrawn when unruly in the stalls at Windsor last time though when favourite and a widest draw is another negative; opposable.

Showed plenty of ability on debut last month and improved to win in impressive fashion at Thirsk last time. Well bred sort who should continue to improve.

Well beaten on both starts and no progress from first to second start. May do better when handicapping over further.

Only narrowly denied in a Catterick maiden on debut but that form hasn't worked out and he was only a distant fourth at Redcar last time. Step up in trip should suit but others preferred.

7/4

More experienced than the rest of these rivals and just about a career best at Goodwood last time. Interesting runner but vulnerable to anything above average.

Plenty of promise in a maiden at Dundalk on debut but failed to build on that next time out. Well bred sort and respected on debut for her new yard here. First start since a wind operation.

Tailed off and showed next to nothing on debut at Newmarket earlier this month. Will need to have learnt plenty in a relatively short space of time to have any say in this.

Barely beaten a rival home in three French starts. Hard to fancy on debut for new yard.

Took a step forward from debut when fifth of 11 at Newmarket towards the end of last year. May have more to give back up in trip here.

Betting

Forecast

Storting (7/4), Eva Maria (15/8), Reaction Time (3/1), Sorbonne (16/1), Beethoven's Gal (20/1), Gazton (25/1), Poetic Legacy (25/1), Inner Charm (50/1), Ningaloo (100/1), Cheerful (100/1)

Verdict

EVA MARIA won with plenty in hand at Thirsk last time out and she could be hard to beat with more improvement on the cards for this well-bred three-year-old filly. Beethoven's Gal showed a fair amount on debut and is respected for her new connections. Storting shouldn't be far away and has more experience than the rest of these rivals.
