Has progressed through handicaps this season, and posted a career best when beating a rusty Skitter Scatter in the G3 Fairy Bridge Stakes at Tipperary (7½f) last time. This is tougher, especially as she has stamina to prove at this trip.
Has run respectably in a series of Listed/Group races this year, but doesn't look like making a breakthrough, and would need a career best to make the frame unless others falter.
Was looking exposed as short of Pattern class in the spring, but improved on her second start back after a break when ½L second of 12 to Goddess in Dance Design Stakes over 1m1f here last time. Must prove she can back that effort up.
Was getting 13lb from Who's Steph when beating that rival by 1¾L in a Listed race at Gowran, but improved again to beat Credenza in the G3 Dance Design Stakes here last time. Clearly thriving, and looks the clear pick of a trio from the stable.
Largely progressive this term, and produced a career best when winning Listed Vincent O'Brien Ruby Stakes at Killarney last month by 1¾L from Waitingfortheday. Seemed to stay when tried over C&D in June, but has more to find at this level.
Mon the Musidora Stakes at York in May, but ran far too freely to figure in G1 Prix de Diane at Chantilly on only subsequent start. Retains plenty of scope provided she can learn to settle, and shortlisted.
Seemingly amiss in the Oaks in June, but picked up the progressive thread when landing G3 Give Thanks Stakes at Cork (1½m, soft) by 2½L last time. That form franked in the week, and solid claims for all faster ground is a concern.
Had Chablis and Goddess behind when winning at Naas in June, but latter turned the tables when the pair met in Dance Design Stakes here last time, albeit bumping her in the process. Bit more required to gain her revenge.
