Well-bred colt who has been progressing well in Germany and, while he lost his unbeaten record to Maljoom (very unlucky loser in St James' Palace earlier this week), he's well worth his place in this company.

Saw off subsequent 2000 Guineas winner when landing the Rockfel at Newmarket in September. Not at her best so far this term, though, comprehensively beaten in the first-named event on her latest outing.

11/2
Useful as a 2yo but left that form well behind when running out a ready winner of a C&D handicap (off a mark of 102). A reproduction of that sort of effort would put him firmly in the mix.

Iffraaj colt who impressed when making a successful debut at Newmarket (7f) in October and similar form when runner-up both starts since. Marked step up required now, though.

Has hit the frame in a couple of listed events this season but his level is established and it's short of what's required to feature in this event.

Impressive 5-length winner on debut at Doncaster (7f) last summer and much improved in defeat when second to Native Trail in the Dewhurst at Newmarket in October. Yet to fire this season but he's dropped in both grade and trip, now.

Useful performer who was back to form when runner-up in a handicap at Goodwood but doesn't look good enough for this grade.

Promising sort who made it two from three when readily getting the better of Audience at Kempton recently. This is a big jump in in class, but he possesses lots of potential.

Likeable type who upped his game when making all in terrific style in a listed event at Newmarket in April. Gelded since, and looks primed for a bold showing.

11/2
Kingman colt who has done nothing but improve and retained his unbeaten record with something to spare at York last time. This is much tougher, but there's more to come in cheekpieces, so demands respect for top connections.

28/1
Lightly raced since his successful debut at Haydock last spring, running to a useful level. Found the 2000 Guineas too much at Newmarket last time and doesn't have any form to think he's a serious player in this.

Smart colt who was better than ever when landing a listed event at Longchamp 48 days ago, powering home to lead late. This track should suit, so he's worth considering.

Useful filly who hit the frame on both starts so far this term, fourth in the Athasi Stakes at the Curragh last time. This looks a stiff task for her, though.

9/2
Emphatic winner of a minor event at Gowran before an excellent fourth in the Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh last month. Drop in trip will be no issue (probably suits ideally), so big run would come as no surprise from this likeable filly.

Forecasts

Noble Truth (4/1), Star Girls Aalmal (9/2), Samburu (11/2), Alflaila (11/2), Monaadah (9/1), Dubawi Legend (9/1), Audience (12/1), Toimy Son (18/1), Dubai Poet (20/1), Rocchigiani (22/1), Hello You (22/1), Tacarib Bay (28/1), Find (40/1), Tuscan (50/1), Mise Le Meas (66/1)

Verdict

STAR GIRLS AALMAL shaped well (travelled strongly for a long way) when fourth in the Irish 1000 Guineas and she's worth a chance to get the better of the colts back at what is probably an ideal trip for her. Noble Truth and Alflaila have achieved a bit more than the selection and deserve plenty of respect, while further improvement from the likes of Monaadah and Samburu would come as no surprise.
