York listed winner last season. Raised her game a little again when ½-length second of 6 to Lilac Road in Middleton Stakes back there on reappearance, though very much had the run of things. Down the field at listed level at Royal Ascot since and looks up against it.

Free-going mare who looked better than ever when winning first 2 starts this season, namely Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket and Group 1 Prix d'Ispahan at Longchamp (9.2f). Pulled too hard when stepped up to 10f in Pretty Polly at the Curragh next time so this trip a slight concern.

Off the mark at listed level at Salisbury last summer and backed it up with excellent second to Ville de Grace in the Pride Stakes at Newmarket on final 3-y-o outing. Only fifth in Dahlia there on return but left that well behind to win York Group 2 from Aristia, overcoming pace bias. Worth a shot.

Narrow winner of listed race at Navan on return and has acquitted herself well to hit the frame at the highest level since, fourth in Belmont Oaks latest. Should give another good account but likely to find a couple too good again. Headgear applied.

Progressive filly who built on encouraging return when narrow winner of listed event at York in May. Runner-up has boosted the form but taking a big step up in class and trip is a concern given her free-going tendencies.

Bolted up in a Haydock novice on return. Took another big step forward when following up in a listed event at Newbury in impressive fashion before good third in Oaks at Epsom. Suited by drop back in trip when narrow winner of Prix de Diane at Chantilly and this race looks ideal for her.

Looked a good prospect when winning first 2 starts before disappointed in Naas listed event. Quickly back on track when third in Group 2 at the Curragh 11 days ago, running on well from the rear. Plenty to find on form upped in class again but could outrun odds with Dettori booked.

Won first 2 starts, notably Lingfield Oaks Trial in May. Ran well in defeat both starts since, namely when 7 lengths seventh of 11 in Oaks at Epsom and length second in Group 3 at Newcastle (10.2f). Bit to find back at this level, though.

Forecasts

Nashwa (6/5), Concert Hall (11/2), Dreamloper (6/1), Lilac Road (15/2), Ville De Grace (12/1), One For Bobby (14/1), Fonteyn (18/1), Rogue Millennium (22/1), Aristia (40/1)

Verdict

NASHWA found the Oaks trip stretching her stamina when third at Epsom but she quickly resumed winning ways dropped back to 10f in the Prix de Diane at Chantilly, the first 2 pulling clear of the rest. This test looks ideal for this classy filly and she's taken to get the better of her elders Ville de Grace, Lilac Road and Dreamloper.
