- Denny Cordell Lavarack & Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes (Group 3) (Class 1)
- 1m 1f 100y, Good
- 15 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Gutsy and genuine mare winner of one of her 10 Flat starts on turf. Useful handicapper will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.
British raider finished third of 11 beaten 1¾L in a Fontainbleau Listed contest earlier this month. More needed in this company but one to have on any shortlist.
Lightly raced mare in the last two years, struggling in a number of starts since leaving trainer Karl Burke in 2017. Plenty to prove in this grade.
British raider, three-time winner from 11 Flat starts on turf. Not disgraced in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge stakes at Royal Ascot before finishing third of eight in a Group 3 contest on Newcastle's Tapeta surface when last seen in June.
Solid and tough handicapper, running well in defeat in a number of starts this term since winning a 7f contest at this venue in April. Plenty to prove in this company.
Sole win on turf came in a 1m handicap at the Curragh in July last year. Generally well held since despite running well in defeat in a couple of starts over the summer. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Second highest rated in the contest, 3lb behind Credenza. Running with credit in defeat, shaping well on a number of occasions since April including when finishing second of 14 beaten 1¼L behind Goddess in a Gowran Park Listed contest last month.
Tough filly, off the mark for connections at the ninth time of asking landing a Naas 1m maiden on good ground last month. Improvement needed but worth a check in the betting.
Winner over C&D on debut in June when in the care of trainer Willie McCreery. Beaten since including when finishing fourth of 14 beaten over 5L in a Listowel Listed contest earlier this month. Open to improvement but looks up against it.
Running with credit in a couple of Group races since last month and comes here rated 3lb clear of her nearest rival. Yard won this race 12 months ago with Broadway, the stables first win in the race since 2006.
Always in rear in the Listed Galtres stakes at York last month, but this looks a lot easier. One of three in the race for the yard that landed this contest 12 months ago, their first win for 12 years.
Ran well to finish fourth of 12 beaten 3L in a Tipperary Group 3 contest last month. Stable usually run their lower-lights in this contest, but did land the spoils last year with Broadway.
Has done well at a lower level, winning a 1m Naas maiden and twice second in small-field minor events before finishing fourth of 11 beaten 2L in a 7f Listed contest at Galway last month.
Solid and consistent efforts in a number of Listed and Group contests without worrying the winners too much. Rated behind a couple of stablemates but the yard won last years renewal with Broadway at odds of 8/1.
Won her maiden at this venue in May over 1m. Earlier progression appears to have leveled out and others look to have stronger claims.
