Deservedly got her first Group success in the bag at Salisbury last time out but the step up in trip will be hard to overcome here against these rivals; more likely than some to run her race at least.
War Front filly. Group 3 winner on debut at Naas back in May. Yard's juveniles often take a big step forward from debut and she could have done any amount of improving in the interim. Fascinating contender, despite the lack of experience.
Beat Year Of The Tiger (runs in 1.50) on debut and has held her own at Group 3/Listed level since but she needs a big career best to mix with some of these up in class here; step back up in trip will suit.
Won a novice event at Beverley prior to a fine performance in Group 3 company at Ascot, beaten just ¾L. Gained compensation at York last time out when making all in good fashion and yard do well with their fillies/juveniles; should be thereabouts.
Improved from maiden company to win a 5f Listed event at the Curragh last month. Only narrowly denied by Dark Lady in a Salisbury Group 3 last time out but needs to step up on that form to play a part here.
Barely beat a rival home in a couple of Group starts this summer but much better effort when dropped in class to win at Wolverhampton last time out. However, as her official rating suggests, she has a tough ask up at this level.
Only narrowly denied at Newbury on debut prior to winning her maiden here last month. Did too much too soon in a French Group 3 last time but she stayed on well enough and she may be capable of better still.
Won a competitive maiden at Cork on debut and denied by the narrowest of margins in a 7f Listed event at Leopardstown last time out. Interesting runner dropped back in trip here.
Gained a second Group 2 success, adding to her Royal Ascot win when winning a Group 2 here at the July meeting. Only narrowly denied when stepped up to Group 1 class in France last time out and a repeat of that performance should see her go close.
Won her maiden at Navan prior to finishing 4L behind Raffle Prize at Royal Ascot, finishing ninth of 25. Has failed to build on that in subsequent runs though and needs the first-time blinkers to have a dramatic effect.
French raider who has won each of her three starts since debut, progressing with each run. Impressive when winning a Group 2 (7f) last time and yard's representatives always respected when sent to UK; rates as a fascinating contender down in trip.
