5/1
Boasts a smart pedigree and improved to get off the mark second time out in 7f maiden at Sandown. Took form to another level when winning a useful event at Ascot on return and sure to progress again.

Kingman filly who made winning debut in soft-ground Newmarket maiden but that form hasn't worked out, and actually found improvement when sixth in Nell Gwyn on return. Needs to progress again. Hooded.

Dual novice winner on the AW, though limitations somewhat exposed when failing to land the odds in 3-runner event at Kempton last month. Needs to improve for the switch to turf.

14/1
Progressed with each run last year and improved a chunk when fourth of 17 in Fred Darling at Newbury on return. That form is backed up by the timefigure so not to be underestimated. Bred to stay 1m.

Failed by a whisker on Kempton debut prior to landing the odds in Leicester novice. Got going too late when third in Group 3 at Newmarket on final 2-y-o start and step up in trip will suit on return.

Impressed when making winning debut in Kempton novice before just touched off under a penalty at Yarmouth. Further progress when fifth in Fred Darling at Newbury on return and remains with potential.

Forecasts

Snow Lantern (10/11), Creative Flair (5/1), Love Is You (5/1), Primo Bacio (14/1), Ville De Grace (14/1), Divine Light (16/1), Kestenna (20/1), Shine For You (33/1)

Verdict

LOVE IS YOU shaped as if the return to 1m would be in her favour when a respectable third in the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket on her return and she's taken to resume winning ways back down in class. Snow Lantern is stepping up in grade, but beat 2 very promising colts in good style in a maiden at Newbury and she probably has the most potential in the field.

  1. LOVE IS YOU (IRE)
