10/1

Half-sister to smart stayers Sir Ron Priestley/Subjectivist and confirmed debut promise when winning in good style at Thirsk. Open to further improvement but may prove vulnerable to speedier types.

11/5

Progressive filly who has won 3 of her 4 outings, including by a wide margin on her first start over 7f in the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Goodwood (soft) last month. Well worth a shot at this.

1/1

Bred to be smart (first foal of Group 1-winning juvenile Ballydoyle) and showed useful form when winning a 7f listed race at Leopardstown only 9 days after making her debut. Leading claims.

10/1

Off the mark at the second attempt with a narrow success in a Doncaster maiden and shaped well when runner-up on her nursery debut at the same course. Promising type but this requires much more.

10/1

Sprang a surprise with 50/1 debut success but confirmed herself a talented juvenile when third in Group 2 at Newmarket before winning Group 3 at Ascot. Excuses at York since and 7f should suit.

Betting

Forecast

Monday (1/1), Isabella Giles (11/5), Nazuna (10/1), Alba Rose (10/1), Santosha (10/1)

Verdict

MONDAY showed much improved form when beating plenty of promising fillies in a listed event at Leopardstown recently and is entitled to take another big step forward. Santosha had excuses in the Lowther at York and can be expected to bounce back over a trip which should suit, so is next best ahead of fellow Group 3 winner Isabella Giles.

  2. SANTOSHA (IRE)
  3. ISABELLA GILES (IRE)
