50/1

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.

Flat and hurdles winner who has placed twice in Listed races this summer. Trip and ground ideal and she will again be in the hunt for place money.

Probably ran her best race to date latest when a neck second in a soft ground 1m4f Listed contest at Galway. Seems to be progressing in her first season of racing and one to consider here.

1,550,000gns filly set some stiff tasks in 2019 with a solitary Listed placing her best effort. Well beaten in a warm Group Three last time and although this is easier she again looks up against it.

Galway maiden winner not beaten a rival in two subsequent Pattern level events so jury remains out at this level of combat.

1m1f Tipperary maiden winner followed up in a 1m2f Fairyhouse handicap off a mark of 83 last time. Up in class but is going the right way at least.

Has won both her starts to date, showing improved form to beat Blenheim Palace in a minor event over 1m3f at Killarney last time. Plenty to find on form, but open to considerable improvement, so not taken lightly.

One win in seven starts courtesy of a Leopardstown maiden two starts back but on all known form she's out of her depth here and well down the Ballydoyle pecking order.

Only won once but placed in three Group Three's including the last twice at Newmarket over 1m2f and 1m4f. Form pick on that basis and now has her chance to earn a deserved success.

Ran comfortably a career-best race last time out when a 50/1 second in a Gowran Listed race with several of these rivals behind. On that basis she's a leading contender but the effort rather came out of nowhere.

Gowran maiden winner on debut in April only raced twice since. Respectable sixth at the aforementioned venue in Listed company but rivals who finished ahead re-oppose.

Dual handicap winner not disgraced behind an emerging force latest when third in an all-sex Listowel Listed race. This isn't any stronger so should again be on the premises for place money.

Betting

Forecast

Simply Beautiful (11/4), Loveisthehigherlaw (9/2), Kiss For A Jewel (9/2), Camphor (5/1), Warnaq (7/1), Solage (14/1), Winiata (14/1), Chablis (14/1), Snapraeceps (25/1), Quote (33/1), Terzetto (50/1), Invitation (50/1)

Verdict

Although set some stiff tasks SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL has acquitted herself with great credit in a winless 2019 campaign. This represents a class drop and she now looks to have found a chance to gain a very well deserved second career score. Unbeaten Loveisthehigherlaw is the dark horse and most feared rival ahead of Snapraeceps whose last effort was outstanding although she had never achieved comparable form before that.
