Sir Michael Stoute
Age: 5
Weight: 9-0
OR: 107
Days: 11

The first runner in the event is the talented Queen Power for Sir Michael Stoute, who heads into the meeting sporting a 21% strike rate.

The daughter of Shamardal has been highly consistent throughout her career placing in seven of her 10 outings, whilst also going on to win twice.

Tried between a mile and 10f throughout her career, last season she was seen finishing second in the Group Two Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket behind the smart Terebellum on seasonal debut.

She then dropped to a mile at Ascot in the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes and was beaten by the smart Nazeef, who went on to land two Group One events in that year.

The mare was outclassed in Group One company next time out finishing fourth in the Nassau Stakes, but was then dropped in class at Salisbury and was a better third.

Queen Power returned as a five year old this term and finished a head second on her first run in the Dahlia Stakes behind Lady Bowthorpe.

That run should set her up perfectly for this event, but she is now without a win in seven and needs to stop that run.

A P O'Brien
Age: 4
Weight: 9-0
OR: 111
Days: 208

Next up is the Aidan O'Brien trained Passion, who holds a decent bit of form heading into this event and if not needing the run should arguably be favourite.

The filly last season was tried over different staying trips from 1m4f to 1m6f and today she drops back in trip which does look a strange one having been fairly consistent towards the end of last term.

She was frequently raced last term in good events, with her best performance coming in the Group Three Stanerra Stakes at Nass over 1m6f when winning.

The daughter of Galileo finished last term with another classy run when third behind Wonderful Tonight and Dame Malliot in the Group One British Champion Fillies' And Mares Stakes.

The more rain the better for this horse and although difficult win with she does hold plenty of ability.

Mrs John Harrington
Age: 4
Weight: 9-0
OR: 103
Days: 243

Another Irish raider in the race is the Jessica Harrington trained Silence Please, who has a huge chance off the back of her form last season and she looks one of the more unexposed horses in the field.

The daughter of Gleneagles has only been seen six times during her career, winning all three of her first starts over 7f and 10f in Ireland.

Looking like a smart filly she was then stepped up to the Listed Oaks Trial at Naas and finished third behind the eventual winner of the Classic race Even So.

Unusually, Harrington sent her then to Germany for there version of the Group One Oaks and she was a fair fourth behind the John Gosden trained Miss Yoda.

She was last seen in September last year finishing a superb second behind the Melbourne Cup runner up Tiger Moth, who also finished second in the Irish Derby earlier in the season.

That looks rock solid form and if progressing again this year, she could be a nice bet at 4/1.

Roger Varian
Age: 4
Weight: 9-0
OR: 104
Days: 208

Moving towards the bigger prices in the race and Cabaletta for Roger Varian is lovely filly for Cheveley Park Stud, but stepping into this company could be outclassed.

The daughter of Mastercraftsman won her sole start as a juvenile at Yarmouth over a mile on heavy ground and was then saved for a three year old campaign.

She returned with a second at Newbury in a Listed event over 1m2f, but then stepped up to 1m4f in the Group Two Lancashire Oaks at Haydock and was outclassed.

Cabaletta got off the mark for the season next time out in a Listed event at Newbury over 12f and was then tried up again in trip in the Lillie Langtry Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and was a fair second to Enbihaar, who has dominated that race for the last few terms.

She was a long way second behind Group One winner Subjectivist after that back at Goodwood and she then finished the season well back in the Group One British Champion Fillies' And Mares Stakes.

Stepping back to 1m2f is a strange one having looked to be moulded into a stayer.

Ralph Beckett

Weight: 9-0
OR: 100
Days: 187

The penultimate runner in the event Chamade for Ralph Beckett, who was a bright winner of a 20 runner Auction Stakes as a juvenile on soft ground at Nwmarket.

Last season she was seen five times, winning two decent events both on soft ground, with the more rain the better for this horse who has only ever won in testing conditions.

On her third start last term she was a big priced winner of a Fillies' Handicap at Glorious Goodwood and then on her final start of the season backed that run up at Doncaster when landing a decent Listed event over 10f.

Rain is the key for this horse.

Mark Johnston
Age: 4
Weight: 9-0
OR: 101
Days: 11

The final runner in the event is the Mark Johnston trained Freyja and she could cause a shock at a double figure price with the handler currently running at a 23% win rate.

Freyja is a smart daughter of Gleneagles that at the back end of last season put together back to back wins on heavy ground over 8f and 10f at Newmarket in a Fillies' Handicap and a Listed event.

She then flopped at Doncaster on her final start of last season, but bounced back to form on seasonal debut with a decent second at Nottingham in a Listed event on quick ground.

On her latest start she was chucked into the Group Two Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket and was outclassed only beating one runner home.

Opposed on that form.
