Third last time out to Lezoo, Tagline got absolutely no run there, and when in the clear, she motored home and definitely went in a few notebooks.

She is up against proper group class fillies now though, so there can’t be any sob-stories! Will need to improve again off the back of her last run, but that was littered with promise and she may surprise.

Dangerous.

Carmela

Days: 23

A winner of a maiden, and a novice race. Carmela was outclassed last time out in the Queen Mary behind a few of these and there’s no real reason why she will be able to turn that form around.

She is a nice filly, but she has plenty on here.

Won a competitive C2 Maiden in good style at York, then she ran a good enough race when fourth in the Albany at Royal Ascot.

She looks to have work on to reverse the form with Mawj, but if she can do that, she’s probably good enough to take this.

Interesting, though may just be found wanting.

An easy winner on debut, Mawj then ran an absolute cracker in the Albany, behind the high class Meditate, of Aidan O’Brien’s.

She was no match for Meditate there, but she’s clearly bundles of ability, and she was very well supported in the week leading up to Royal Ascot.

She will appreciate the extra furlong here, and she probably.. has leading form claims, though this race is a tricky puzzle.

Impressive on debut at Nottingham, winning by an easy two and a half lengths. She then ran an absolutely massive race when seemingly unfancied for the Queen Mary (28/1).

Dramatised looks to be the leading 2yo filly so far this season, and she closed her down well towards the business end of the Queen Mary (5f) without ever really threatening. She has one of the best claims on form, and this extra furlong should help.

One of the likelier winners.

Unbeaten Zoustar filly. She won in good style on debut at Bath, and confirmed her promise when taking the Empress Fillies’ Stakes at Newmarket last time out, again in good style.

She looked a filly to keep on side there, and with progression again assured, she could well be one to beat.
