Completed a notable hat-trick during 2yo season, winning two sales races and a Group 3 event (all on good or good to soft); Listed scorer on AW two outings ago; useful filly but this looks a stiff assignment for her.

Won the Albany over C&D last year (good to soft) then followed up in Group 2 at Newmarket (soft); below that form in three runs since, markedly so at Haydock (heavy) latest; needs to turn things around.

Sole runner for Ballydoyle but he's no Caravaggio, who won this for the yard in 2017; beaten favourite in races won by Measure Of Magic and A Case Of You this term; first-time blinkers need to make a difference.

Consistent filly whose last two runs came at Naas, winning a 5f Listed event on good then third (demoted from second) to A Case Of You in 6f Group 3 on soft; doesn't look good enough to take a serious hand at this level.

Impressive on first two juvenile starts then had excuses (pulled hard, saddle slipped) in the Middle Park; no further progress the last twice but soft/heavy ground possibly wasn't ideal; may yet build on his early promise.

Has raced only on good/firmer; flopped badly in the Commonwealth Cup Trial but it's far too soon to write him off; now blinkered; leading player on his highly progressive 2yo form which included all-the-way wins in the Richmond and the Middle Park.

Landed the 7f Nell Gwyn (good) on reappearance then failed to stay 1m in the 1,000 Guineas; smart sprinting form as a 2yo, including silver medals in the Queen Mary and on good to soft in the Lowther, but that may be as good as she is.

Similar profile to Mighty Gurkha as he ran respectably (finished second) in the Commonwealth Cup Trial but faces a tougher task in the main event; form dipped sharply at Haydock (wore cheekpieces) last time.

Outstayed over 1m at the Breeders' Cup when last seen; 3-3 over sprint trips otherwise as a 2yo, including wins in the Queen Mary here (good) and the Prix Morny (soft); talented filly who still has more to offer and commands major respect back down in distance.

Has made a bright start to her 2021 season with two Listed wins, both over an extended 5f on good ground; strode clear in emphatic style at Cork on latest occasion; likely to prove effective back over 6f, at least on a sound surface; arrives in great form.

Possibly unsuited by heavy in Irish 1,000 Guineas on seasonal debut; good form in two attempts over 6f, winning the Lowther (good to soft) then second in the Cheveley Park (good); this demands a personal best, however.

No fluke about his 66-1 success in Curragh Group 2 last July as he has confirmed the form since, close fourth to A Case Of You at Naas (soft) most recently; however, more is needed in first-time tongue-tie.

Bounced back from a disappointing effort to win Group 3 at Naas (6f, soft) last time, taking overall record to 4-6 and record for new stable to 2-3; furthermore, he's 3-3 at about 6f and may have more to offer.

Exciting filly who is unbeaten in four races, all at Chantilly (5.5f/6f) on ground softer than good, including heavy; successful in two Group 3 contests for new trainer this term, quickening clear for an impressive performance on latest occasion; looks very classy and has to be feared.

RACING POST TIP

Campanelle
Supremacy has a leading chance on ratings but he needs to bounce back from a very disappointing effort in the Commonwealth Cup Trial. CAMPANELLE is preferred, as she remains unbeaten over sprint distances and one of her wins came at this meeting last year. She still has very low mileage and should have plenty more to offer. Exciting French challenger Suesa oozed class on her latest outing and is feared most. Dragon Symbol, Jumby, Measure Of Magic and Diligent Harry (in that order) may prove best of the remainder.
