No. 11 Draw 12

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No. 12 Draw 7

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
