Timeform Daily: Thursday, Goodwood 15:45

Goodwood is the venue for Thursday's Race of the Day

Timeform run the rule over a Listed contest from Goodwood on Thursday afternoon, with seven runners going to post for the Height of Fashion Stakes...

None of the 7 can be ruled out with total confidence but preference is for Minidress, who is likely to appreciate this extra distance the most...

Nayarra got off mark in style when taking Italian Group 1 on final run at 2 yrs. Close second in Nell Gywn on return before mid-field in 1000 Guiness. Sets standard but vulnerable under penalty up in trip.

Coquet is from an excellent female line and quickly progressed to a useful level last term, taking 1m listed race at Newmarket on final run. Step up in trip will suit and has more to come this year.

Estrela is a half-sister to several winners, notably smart King of Argos. Won Newbury maiden at 2 yrs and creditable third in Oaks Trial at Lingfield on return, shaping as if this drop in trip will suit.

Gathering is a smartly-bred filly who confirmed debut promise when readily landing 1m maiden at Newmarket in September. Likely to stay this far but bit of a concern that she's fitted with headgear on this return.

Minidress made winning debut at Newmarket in August before good fourth in Group 3 there following month. Looked ready for step up to this sort of trip in Nell Gynn on return and better expected now.

Zaina improved on placed efforts in AW maidens when winning 1¼m event at Doncaster in March. That form has been working out well and this Ribblesdale entry is still unexposed.

Zimira is out of a half-sister to Barathea and Gossamer and made winning start in 1m maiden at Lingfield in November. Still green when fifth in Oaks Trial there on return but big improvement required.

Timeform Verdict:
1. Minidress
2. Coquet
3. Zaina

Timeform View: None of the 7 can be ruled out with total confidence but preference is for Minidress, who is likely to appreciate this extra distance the most. Coquet could emerge as the chief threat despite her penalty.
