Won a 1m Curragh Group 3 on heavy last August. Unable to make an impact in Group 1 Moyglare on final start but this sort of trip promises to suit her this year.

AW maiden winner in December. Stepped up on that form when second of 15 over 1¼m on Wetherby return, pulling well clear of the third. Capable of better again for top yard with strong record in this.

Daughter of Dubawi and Irish 1000 Guineas winner Just The Judge and she's quickly reached a useful level, seeing off 5 rivals in 1¼m Sandown novice on reappearance 15 days ago.

Confirmed debut promise when landing 1m Lingfield novice in December. From a good family and should have more to offer now stepping up in class on her return.

Notched a pair of AW novice wins (1m/1¼m) in March. Her form isn't anything special but she's a lightly-raced filly from a top yard and there could easily be plenty more to come.

Wolverhampton maiden winner on third start who improved again to make a successful start to her turf career in 1¼m Windsor handicap 19 days ago. Definitely more to come from her.

$200,000 yearling who was very well-backed when winning 1m Newcastle novice on debut but she was 6 lengths behind the reopposing Loving Dream at Wetherby since.

AW winner at Wolverhampton in January and ran a cracker when narrowly denied by Wirko in 1¼m Epsom listed 18 days ago. Should have more to offer. Leading claims.

Forecasts

Loving Dream (10/3), Ocean Road (4/1), Divinely (5/1), Nash Nasha (5/1), Technique (5/1), Regent (11/1), Save A Forest (12/1), Sherbet Lemon (28/1), Invite (33/1)

Verdict

TECHNIQUE ran a cracker when narrowly denied in an Epsom listed event against the colts on just her second start so she gets the vote with further improvement likely. The Gosden stable has won 3 of the last 4 runnings so Loving Dream, the mount of Dettori from the yard's pair, rates an obvious danger. Save A Forest looks capable of making an impact in a higher grade and is also shortlisted.
