Made a winning debut in one of the first 2-y-o races of the season at Newcastle (5f) in April, despite missing the break, but could run to only a similar level at Newmarket next time.

Overcame greenness to score in good style on debut at Tipperary in April. Unlucky to bump into an above-average newcomer in her bid to defy a penalty at the Curragh and remains with potential.

Mehmas filly who was backed at long odds and made a winning start in 6f maiden at Redcar 17 days ago. Open to improvement but this is a big ask.

Found some more improvement in first-time cheekpeices to get off the mark in 6f maiden at Chelmsford 15 days ago, but that was a weak race and she'll surely be outclassed here. Blinkered.

Built on debut run when landing 10-runner novice event at Beverley in April. Progressed significantly to follow up in the Hilary Needler back there last time and has earned a shot at this level.

Bobby's Kitten filly who showed fairly useful form in making a winning start in 6f novice at Kempton 30 days ago. That effort is backed up by the clock and she's open to improvement.

Forecasts

Flotus (9/2), Hello You (5/1), Prettiest (13/2), Elliptic (13/2), Cachet (15/2), Eve Lodge (17/2), Oscula (10/1), Hellomydarlin (10/1), Sandrine (16/1), Sunstrike (33/1), Sows (33/1), Lady Ayresome (50/1), El Maga (80/1), Gypsy Lady (80/1), Anadora (125/1)

Verdict

FLOTUS created a tremendous impression when making a successful start to her career at Goodwood last month, and although the bare form is just useful, she has to be marked down as a most exciting prospect. She gets the vote over Hello You, who impressed equally when scoring by a wide-margin on her debut at Wolverhampton. Eve Lodge has a bit about her and makes each-way appeal at bigger odds.

  1. FLOTUS (IRE)
