Days: 66

Making her debut in early April, Richard Hannon’s filly scored at Newmarket over 5 furlongs on good ground.

Not exactly well fancied in the betting, she went off at 9/1 but showed a great battling attitude to get up late and deny Yahsat by a head. The form took a boost with the 2nd and 3rd coming out and winning since.

She stayed on well on debut, hinting that this trip will suit and her form has been franked since.

Ibiza Love

J: Ben Curtis
T: Hugo Palmer
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: N/A
Days: 13

A debut run over 5 furlongs saw Ibiza Love a little outpaced at Doncaster. She didn’t help herself by missing the break and finding herself in the rear from the off.

Running on smartly she did well to capture 3rd but couldn’t get near Double O and Parr Fire. Both of those being beaten since doesn’t boost the form much but Ibiza Love shaped much better to score herself over 6.5 furlongs.

Breaking smartly this time, she took up the running and made all the running to run the field into the ground. She looks to have plenty of stamina but might lack the pace to keep herself in the mix.

Impressively scoring at York over 6 furlongs in a good maiden race, Queen Olly sat handy in the field before pulling right away in the last furlong.

The field unable to go with her, she stretched them out well and they came home in intervals.

Unfortunately the form hasn’t worked out particularly well since but she beat her rivals with a decent amount in hand and will come on for that effort.

Days: 30

Running over 5.5 furlongs on her debut for Richard Hannon back in April, Land Of Summer rattled home late to get the better of Confederation late on.

Upped slightly in trip for her most recent outing she just failed in shouldering her penalty over 6 furlongs. Being denied by a nose to a rival she was giving 7lbs away too.

The form looks nothing special and she needs to find a lot to be getting involved.

N/A
Age: 2

OR: N/A
Days: 17

Charles Hills sent out this daughter of Sioux Nation for her debut at the end of last month over 6.5 furlongs at Newbury.

Dealing with ground with some cut in it, she came from the rest of the field and only needed to be pushed out to seal her debut win.

The form has been tested since with the 7th winning at a mammoth 66/1 on her next outing.

The stiff track should suit but she’ll need to improve a fair deal to be getting involved here.

Days: 79

Only seen once on a race track, She’s Hot was a fancied favourite for her debut on the all weather at Kempton at the end of March.

However looking green in running and lacking some pace she had to settle for 2nd spot behind Ocean Cloud.

That rival has won again since boosting the form but She’s Hot will have to improve bundles for moving up in trip and switching to turf.

Days: 33

An unbeaten filly for Aidan O’Brien heads he markets here. A daughter of No Nay Never, Meditate arrives at Ascot unbeaten from two outings.

Scoring on her debut at the Curragh over 5 furlongs she showed plenty of speed to easily break her maiden. Upped in grade off the back of that impressive display she handily took a group 3 event over 6 furlongs. Sitting handy in the field before quickening clear nicely.

She brings some group form to the table and looks like the one to beat on paper.

Days: 35

One of the more experienced runners in the field, Beautiful Eyes has had three outings already this season.

Winning handily on debut over 5 furlongs at Ayr, she then easily shouldered a penalty to win on the all weather at Kempton.

She did it with a bit in hand but the form hasn’t worked out well subsequently. The 2nd and 3rd being well beaten on their next outings.

Last seen moved up into listed company for the Margate Stakes, she struggled for pace and failed to go with the first three home late on.

Going up in trip will help her and she wasn’t disgraced at a good level last time out.

OR: N/A
Days: 11

A decent amount of experience has been gained by Double O already. Making her debut only last month she ran over 5 furlongs and was only narrowly denied by Parr Fire. Ibiza Love back in 3rd.

Sent off a warm favourite for her next outing, she shaped like 5 furlongs was too sharp for her and she ran on well to be 3rd. This coming only 2 weeks after her debut.

Turned out again at the start of this month, she got her head in front when going up in trip. Justifying favouritism this time to win with plenty in hand.

She won well enough last time out but will have to find more here.

Age: 2

OR: N/A
Days: 20

Currently at the foot of the betting is Miss Mai Tai. Robert Cowell’s filly has had three outings already and has failed to so much in any of her runs.

Making all three of her efforts over 5 furlongs, she has been well outpaced and sent off at long odds for each run.
Finishing 6th twice and most recently 5th it’s hard to build any case for her being involved in a group 3 event.

Lady Bullet

J: Kieran O'Neill

N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: N/A
Days: 22

A filly by James Garfield, Lady Bullet showed nice speed on debut to score over 5 furlongs at Doncaster on quick ground.

Staying on nicely to get the win in a clustered finish, she edged to her left under pressure but still managed to get up well in the last 100 yards.

Upped to 6 furlongs off the back of that, she looked better for having a run under her belt and going up in trip. Easily taking up the running at the halfway stage and bounding clear of the field.

The 3rd from her last run has come out and won since but it doesn’t look the deepest of form.

Age: 2

OR: N/A
Days: 25

George Boughey has proven himself to be very good with his juveniles and Believing ran well to be 2nd on her debut to the impressive Mawj.

Unable to live with that impressive rival but finishing a clearcut 2nd, Believing got off the mark on the all weather at short odds over 6 furlongs.

She didn’t seem to enjoy the turn at Wolverhampton so returning to a straight track should suit her more here.

The form of her win hasn’t worked out well and Mawj made her look very average on her debut. Likely to be left wanting for quality.

Days: 39

Only seen once over 5 furlongs for Karl Burke, Cathy Come Home justified favouritism over 5 furlongs.

Held up at the back of the field, she easily brought herself into contention on the outside of the pack. Hitting the lead a furlong from home she powered clear and hit the line going away.

The form hasn’t come under much scrutiny yet, the 4th being well beaten subsequently.

Moving up in trip looks like a positive but she’ll need to step forward from her debut.

Days: 34

Only seen once for Saeed bin Suroor, Mawj debuted last month at Newmarket over 6 furlongs and showed a good professional attitude to win at the first time of asking.

Held up off the pace, Mawj quickened up in impressive fashion late on to win going away. It was striking how quickly she stretched clear of the field.

The 2nd has franked the form since by winning. She’ll get a hot pace to aim at here and has already shown a liking for rattling fast ground.

She looks a real threat to the favourite if progressing from her initial success.

N/A

Days: 20

Yet to score a win for connections, Beautiful Aisling has had two outings and has filled the 2nd place spot both times.

Debuting over 5 furlongs at Sandown on quick ground she was just held by Cuban Mistress in a tight three way finish. The Winner has run well in defeat under a penalty since showing the form isn’t too bad.

Last seen at the minimum trip she just failed to reel in One More Olly. The two pulled well clear of the field but One More Olly just doing enough to win.

She didn’t handle a bend at Chelmsford last time out so a straight track will suit her better. Going up in trip will likely bring out some improvement too.

Representing the Gosdens is Fully Wet. A Kodiac filly, she made her debut last month at Goodwood.

Running over 6 furlongs on rain softened ground, she showed some greenness coming out of the stalls and ducking to her left.

She quickened up nicely when asked and despite wandering off a true line she pulled away from the 2nd smartly.
The form hasn’t been deeply tested and she encounters a different set of conditions here.

Only seen once, Ivory Madonna ran in the maiden race won by Fully Wet at Goodwood. Looking green coming out of the stalls, she ran on to challenge in the last 2 furlongs but faded back late on.

She didn’t quite get home on softer ground over 6.5 furlongs and will need to show a lot more to be having a say in this race.

Kevin Ryan debuted this filly at Newcastle on the all weather in a 5 furlong novice race last month.

The form hasn’t been tested since but she did well to sit prominently in the field and quicken up to catch the long time leader in the last furlong. Just showing the superior stamina to hold on narrowly.

She looks like going up in trip will be fine but she has plenty to prove in this grade.
