Ambivalent has high head carriage but that didn't stop her progressing last year, winning listed event at Newbury. Placed twice in Group company in recent weeks, but attitude remains a worry at this level.
La Collina sprung surprise in Phoenix Stakes here at 2 yrs. Winless in 2012, but ended season with couple of decent efforts in top company, and similar story this spring. 1m may prove her best trip.
Princess Highway quickly developed into a smart filly last year, winning 3 times, including the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. Turned over at odds on when reappearing at Naas, but she'll be sharper now. Blinkered.
Shirocco Star finished second in Oaks/Irish Oaks last term and has posted several good efforts in defeat since, but she disappointed in 9f Dahlia Stakes on reappearance, and her prolonged winless sequence is a concern.
Was showed marked improvement when edging out Shirocco Star in the Oaks at Epsom in 2012 and made frame next 3 starts. Found 1m an indeqaute test when only fourth in a Group 3 here last month.
Alive Alive Oh is from a good family and stepped up on debut effort when easy winner of Cork maiden. Looked out of top drawer when romping away with listed race at Navan next time and deserves a crack at this.
Cruck Realta won twice at Salisbury at 2 yrs and confirmed herself a useful filly when landing a listed contest over this trip at Newbury 17 days ago. Booked for a struggle in this company, though.
Harasiya achieved useful level of form as a 2-y-o, winning first 2 starts at Leopardstown (both over 7f) and third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes here final outing. Flopped in the Guineas and stamina to prove.
Rehn's Nest showed ability in maidens/listed contest in 2012, and improved to land the Park Express Stakes here in March (1m). Excelled herself when second in Irish Guineas and excused recent Ascot defeat.
Say imposing filly who got off the mark at third time of asking in maidens at Cork in May (1½m). Found the Oaks at Epsom too much next time and only a fair effort in Group 3 company since.
1. Alive Alive Oh
3. Princess Highway
Timeform Verdict: There are very good reasons to expect both Was and Princess Highway to step up on their respective reappearance runs, but Alive Alive Oh looked a Group 1 filly in the making when a taking winner of a listed contest last month, and can take the step up in class in her stride.
