Thrice-raced maiden. 6/4, second of 9 in minor event at Newbury (6f, good to soft) 33 days ago. Yard in good form and it'd be no surprise to see improvement from this filly on nursery debut.

Lightly-raced maiden. 9/2, last of 4 in nursery at Kempton (6f) 30 days ago. Solid claims judged on Glorious Goodwood effort 3 starts back, but a return to that 7f trip may be in order.

Winner at Bath in August. Bit below form tenth of 19 in minor event at York (6f, good, 66/1) 28 days ago, missing break. Sights lowered now pitched into a nursery, but he doesn't look straightforward.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A winning nursery debut is on the cards for AL SAARIYAH, who has finished second in novice events at Haydock and Newbury the last twice, the winners of which have subsequently been placed in Group company. Judged on her Chepstow effort in June (plausible excuses since), Merry Secret is an appealing value angle for forecast purposes and Coco Bear is also a contender for the runner-up spot.

Betting Forecast

12/1 Temple Bruer, 5/4 Al Saariyah (Ire), 8/1 Monza City (Ire), 13/2 Vedute (Ire), 10/1 Coco Bear (Ire)
