Won the Boomerang Stakes at this meeting last year and has been running well in defeat in Group 1 company in recent starts. Needs a bit more to land her first Group 1 but drop back in trip will help and she's versatile with regards to ground.
Won this race last year and returned with a good second in the Lockinge prior to winning the Group 1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville. Only narrowly denied in a Group 2 at York last time but she will relish this step back up in trip; hard to beat.
Won her maiden here and landed a Group 3 at the Curragh in May but limitations perhaps exposed since. Seemed to appreciate quick ground when runner-up at Saratoga last time but more needed back on home turf.
Impressive 1,000 Guineas winner at Newmarket and ran to a similar level when landing the Irish equivalent next time out. Beaten at Royal Ascot and clearly wasn't herself when tailed off at Goodwood but it would be no surprise to see her bounce back.
Group 1 winning juvenile who stayed on gamely to win the Group 1 Pretty Poly Stakes at the Curragh in June. Disappointed last time back at that venue but she's better than that and warrants respect back down in trip here.
Group 2 winner as a juvenile and while she's yet to get off the mark this year, she put up a solid effort when second in the Belmont Oaks. Failed to back that up at Goodwood though and yard have stronger claims with Hermosa. Wears first-time hood.
Progressed through the ranks as a juvenile, culminating in a Group 1 success at the Curragh. However, signs she hadn't trained on in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket and failed to justify a drop in class at Tipperary last time; this is tougher.
