Tough filly who held her form well during busy 2yo/3yo campaigns, winning two Group 1 events including the 1,000 Guineas; justified favouritism in Curragh Group 3 on reappearance but was then well beaten in the Lockinge at Newbury last month; today's conditions ideal but she has 3l to find with Saffron Beach on their Sun Chariot running last autumn; cheekpieces on.

Useful on her day, best efforts when placed in French 1,000 Guineas at Longchamp and Prix de Sandringham at Chantilly (both 1m, soft) in the first half of 2021; might have needed the run when only fifth of seven in 7f Listed race at Longchamp on her reappearance but she faces a stiff assignment here and has yet to race on ground firmer than good.

Just one win from 13 attempts and she trailed home last behind Mother Earth in last season's 1,000 Guineas; proved she stays 1m when a creditable fourth of seven in Group 2 at the Curragh (25-1) three weeks ago but this is a stronger race and she has plenty to find.

Smart on her day, peak performance when fifth in Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket (1m, good to firm; Mother Earth second) last summer; sometimes looks a tricky ride and found little after typically racing freely when last in Listed race at Goodwood (favourite; Bashkirova well ahead in second) on reappearance; not ruled out if everything clicks but she carries risks.

Often makes the running; won last year's German 1,000 Guineas (1m, good to soft) and ran just as well in the frame in Group 1 Coronation Stakes here (1m, heavy) and Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein at Longchamp (1m, soft) afterwards; a leading candidate on form but has to put a below-par reappearance effort behind her and this will be her first run on ground firmer than good.

Put up a high-class performance when beating Mother Earth by 3l in last year's Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket (1m, good) in October, making all, and was far from disgraced against males at the same level at Meydan (1m1f, good) on her reappearance; may not be fully exposed just yet and she's high on the list despite a 5lb penalty.

French-trained filly who gained her most important success in last month's Group 2 Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud (1m, good to soft), coming from last place to lead late on; unplaced in her three races at Group 1 level but she's relatively lightly raced and ought to make her presence felt if handling the quicker ground (unraced on firmer than good).

Has come a long way in a short space of time, winning four of her six races; further improvement when gaining decisive success in Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom (8.5f, good) 11 days ago, leading inside the final 1f; versatile in terms of the ground; more progress required up further in grade but that's not out of the question; trainer won this race in 2019.

Verdict

A 5lb penalty will make things harder for SAFFRON BEACH but Jane Chapple-Hyam's likeable daughter of New Bay still appeals the most.
