£130,000 yearling; weak 9-1 for a Newmarket maiden (5f, good) in April but she gradually worked her way into contention before keeping on well for a last-gasp win; has a lot more to do after a 66-day break but that initial form has worked out really well and this step up in trip looks a good move; possibilities for yard that won this in 2015.

Made some promising late headway when third at Doncaster (5f, good to firm) on debut and she justified support when making all upped to 6.5f there (good) two weeks ago; has a lot more to do in this hot contest but that was a major step forward last time and she's open to more progress back in trip.

Cost 300,000euros as a yearling and she kicked off her career with an emphatic win in a 6f York maiden (good; 11-4 favourite) last month; powered clear from a clear second in that race and looks an exciting prospect; shortlisted for in-form yard.

Finished well when a 12-1 winner at Brighton (5.3f, good to firm) on her debut in April and she was only just caught under a penalty at Kempton (6f, AW) last month; open to more progress for top yard but she needs another big step forward to make her mark in this company.

Ran green when 9-1 at Newbury (6.5f, good to soft) 17 days ago but that didn't stop her scoring with something in hand from off the pace; has forecast faster ground and tougher rivals to contend with today but that was a promising start and she's not ruled out.

Well-backed favourite and showed clear promise when runner-up at Kempton (5f, AW) in March; should be more streetwise on this step up in trip but she needs to find lots of improvement on this big rise in class.

360,000euros No Nay Never filly; made a bright start with her front-running win at the Curragh (5f, yielding) in April before justifying support in good style in a 6f Group 3 event at Naas (good) last month; travelled smoothly for a long way before finding plenty in latter race and she sets the standard on that form; strong contender for Aidan O'Brien.

Made all at Ayr (good) on her debut in April before comfortably defying a penalty at Kempton (AW); ran well again when fourth of 15 in Listed race at York last time but she didn't look entirely straightforward (hung left throughout) and has more to do now upped to 6f in this Group 3 event.

Sent off at 3-1 or shorter in all three runs; went close twice before a comfortable success on the step up to 6f at Pontefract (good to firm) but she didn't really need to improve much to land that maiden and has plenty to find in this tough assignment; same connections also run Queen Olly.

Has not made an impact in her three runs, most recently when fifth of nine in the Hilary Needler at Beverley (5f) three weeks ago; goes into deeper waters on this step up in trip and she can only be watched.

Represents a yard with an impressive strike-rate with 2yos this season and she's played her part with wins at Doncaster (good to firm) and Ripon (good); didn't have much trouble defying a penalty when upped to 6f last time and this well-bred filly could continue on an upward curve; dangerous in her bid to make it 3-3.

Made a positive start with her eyecatching second behind Mawj at Newmarket (6f, good to firm); didn't have to match that form when 1-3 at Wolverhampton (AW) but she got the job done with plenty in hand, despite losing a lot of ground by rearing at the start; this is a very different test but she's a promising type who is not ruled out.

Out of a well-related middle-distance winner but she made a good start over 5f when scoring in smooth style at Musselburgh (good to firm; 2-1) last month; that was in a small field and this is a big rise in class but she has plenty of scope for progress on this step up in trip.

Half-sister to three winners including Modern Games (7f-1m 2yo, including Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, and French 2,000 Guineas; RPR 115); showed signs of inexperience when 12-1 at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last month but she still managed to surge almost 5l clear from Believing in the closing stages; that was an impressive debut and she recorded a striking RPR; big player.

Havana Gold filly who showed plenty of promise with her close seconds over 5f at Sandown (good to firm) and Chelmsford (AW) last month; has shaped as though this step up in trip should suit but brings only fair form and has a lot to find on this steep rise in grade.

120,000gns Kodiac filly who is out of a half-sister to Group 1 winners Excelebration (triple 1m) and Lancaster Bomber (10.5f); looked inexperienced when 8-1 at Goodwood (6f, good to soft) last month but she challenged over 1f out before staying on well to beat the favourite with something in hand; looks a very useful prospect.

Shaped with promise when a 9-2 third at Goodwood (6f, good to soft) on her debut last month but was almost 3l behind Fully Wet in that race and needs a major leap forward to make an impact in this Group 3 event.

Cost 225,000gns as a yearling and is out of a Listed-placed 5f-6f winner (RPR 99); didn't have much in hand when landing a five-runner Newcastle novice (5f, AW) last month but showed a good attitude to beat a previous winner and should improve upped to this trip on second start; could be in the mix.

Verdict

The vote goes to Godolphin's MAWJ who looked the real deal when surging clear at Newmarket and recorded a useful RPR in that race.
