Confirmed debut promise when comfortably opening her account at Beverley last month. Improved again when 6 lengths fourth in 1m May Hill at Doncaster since but she'll need a fair bit more to go close at this level. Yard's good form provides some hope, though.

Kingman filly who made a very impressive winning start to her career on the July Course here 8 weeks ago. Looks more than capable of making her presence felt at a much higher level.

Won over 7f at Sandown on first 2 starts, latterly a listed event (pulled clear with Prestige winner Fairy Cross). Something can't have been right when disappointing favourite in May Hill. Capable of bouncing back.

Expensive Breeze-Up acquisition who opened her account at the second time of asking in a novice at Ayr 38 days ago. This is a much tougher assignment, but she's open to further improvement.

Became yet another winning 2-y-o newcomer for the stable this season when seeing off 9 rivals at Thirsk (7f, soft) 3 weeks ago. Likely to improve but will need to leave that bare form well behind to go close in this company.

Looked a useful prospect when readily taking a 7f Salisbury maiden on her second start. More to come from her and the stable is flying.

Epsom maiden winner in July. Quite useful form in Group 3 events in France last month but well below par at Goodwood latest. Surely vulnerable at this level of competition.

Tail flasher but it hasn't prevented her developing into a very useful juvenile, including a Group 3 win on the July Course (7f, good to firm). Possibly unsuited by heavy ground when last of 11 in Moyglare latest.

Unbeaten in 2 starts, namely a 7f maiden and 1m novice. Takes a jump in class now but she likely has more to offer.

Newbury maiden winner who improved again when excellent ¾-length second of 7 to Meditate in Debutante at the Curragh (7f, good to firm) 5 weeks ago. That's the best piece of form on offer here.

6f Newbury debut winner in June and looked very useful when easily seen off 11 rivals over 7f at Leicester 11 weeks later. Not to be underestimated.

Cracksman filly who made a winning debut in a big field at Newbury (6f) at the end of May. It's taken a bit of time to get her back to the track but interesting that good 2-y-o stable is prepared to pitch her in at deep end on her return

Landed a 6f Yarmouth maiden early last month but came up well short in the Lowther at York a fortnight later. Likely outsider now tackling 7f for the first time.

Useful filly who improved to win Group 3 Prix Six Perfections at Deauville (7f, good) last month by ¾ length from Terrestrial. A bit more will be needed to follow up here.

Forecasts

Olivia Maralda (5/2), Commissioning (7/2), Rage Of Bamby (7/1), Dance In The Grass (9/1), Eximious (12/1), Sydneyarms Chelsea (14/1), Electric Eyes (16/1), Rich (16/1), Lakota Sioux (16/1), Leitzel (20/1), Dubai Jemila (50/1), Cell Sa Beela (50/1), Sweet Harmony (66/1), Ipanema Princess (200/1)

Verdict

It's a big ask jumping from a novice to a Group 2 but COMMISSIONING created such a good impression on her July Course debut that she's expected to cope. Olivia Maralda's Debutante Stakes second is very good form so she's feared most. The unbeaten Rage of Bamby looks capable of making her mark at pattern level, while Dance In The Grass is better than she showed in the May Hill and can quickly get her career back on track and play a prominent role.
