€750,000 yearling; has experience of racing on varying types of ground; made all, keeping on well to fend off Stars In The Sky by 1L in a C&D fillies' maiden last month; can she handle the step up in class?
All three starts have come on the July Course at Newmarket (6f-7f); a decisive winner of a Class 4 fillies' novice on her penultimate start, she blew the start losing all chance behind West End Girl in the Group 3 Sweet Solera Stakes subsequently.
Daaher filly; off to the perfect start when winning a low-key maiden auction at Brighton (7f, good to firm) five-weeks ago; has the potential to improve, but this level of opposition offers a very stern test; considered unlikely.
Progressive Kingman filly; arrives seeking a hat-trick following wins at Newbury and Goodwood (both 7f); won a shade cosily when taking the Grp 3 Prestige Stakes by a neck from the subsequent Salisbury Grp 3 winner Dark Lady; solid chance.
Invincible Spirit filly; created a very favourable impression when a clear-cut 3½L debut winner at Ascot (7f, good to firm) in July; the strength of that form is yet to be fully tested but she rates as a very exciting prospect.
800,000gns yearling; daughter of Galileo; sister to the Irish Derby and St Leger winner Capri; smooth winner of a Cork fillies' maiden (1m, yielding) earlier this month; has ample potential for the future, and could well be improving quickly.
50,000gns yearling; sprung a surprise when a 20-1 winner of a 7f Newmarket (July) fillies' novice three-weeks ago; connections have precious little to lose and plenty to gain by pitching her in deeper here.
€160,000 yearling; half-sister to eight winners; progressive throughout her career and never more impressive than when upped to 1m at Kempton latest (a 6L winner); John Gosden opts to rely solely upon her abilities in this 1m Group 2 contest.
Golden Horn filly (95,000gns yearling); impossible to knock based upon what we've witnessed on track to date (2-3); made virtually all when cutting her teeth in Group company in the Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket (form solid) last month.
