Steadily improving without winning this season so far and posted strong effort when fourth in 1m2f Yarmouth Listed contest earlier this month. Will need to improve again though against younger rivals.
Seems to have lost her way since Listed success last year and put up midfield effort in 1m4f September Stakes last time out. Failed to threaten in this last year and needs significant improvement.
Has been running well all season and rewarded for her consistency when winning 1m4f Newbury handicap a week ago. Quick turnout but commands respect at this level.
1m4f winner at Goodwood in May and gained black type with placed efforts in Listed contests since. Moves up another level in this but holds solid place claims.
Shock winner of 1m4f York handicap at the Ebor meeting but found Group 3 level too hot to handle in the September Stakes last time. Unlikely to be up to this level either.
Listed race winner at this track last year and has been highly tried since. Took a backward step when fifth in 1m4f Listed race at Longchamp last time and may be out of her depth at this level.
Expensive purchase who got off the mark at the second attempt before fine second in Group 3 March Stakes (1m6f) at Goodwood last time. That form looks strong and set to go well again.
Sole win came back in Naas maiden in June and had put up consistent efforts before 5L sixth in 1m4f Listed contest at Galway. More needed but runners from this yard cannot be ignored.
Got deserved win in France in July before narrow Group 3 second followed up by not staying in 1m6f Doncaster Group 2 last time. Back down in trip for this and can't be dismissed.
