Tailed off when just 4-1 in the Oaks and it's hard to be confident in her following that; however, her trainer's horses can bounce back swiftly from a poor run and she won the Cheshire Oaks (11.3f, good to soft) time before; versatile ground-wise and in the mix if leaving her Epsom run behind.

No match for stablemate Snowfall when third in the Oaks (1m4f, good to soft) but the same can be said for the rest of the field and she may have been second granted a more beneficial passage; this sister to Arc winner Found could have more to offer and, having been supplemented for this race, she's the sole runner for Aidan O'Brien who has won three of the last seven renewals; could have a big say if the ground suits (best form is on slow ground).

Won Leopardstown maiden (1m, good) on debut last July and has run respectably in defeat in Group 3 and Listed races at up to 11.6f; however, needs to take a big step forward to pose a serious threat today.

Could do with settling better than in last month's Musidora at York (1m2f, good to soft) but that near-4l second was given a major boost when the winner Snowfall bolted up in the Oaks, ahead of Musidora fourth Mystery Angel in second; missed the Oaks herself due to a blood disorder; has won on good (unraced on good to firm); by Galileo out of multiple Group 1 winner Midday and has high-class potential, with this step up in trip a likely positive.

Got up late on debut at Newbury (1m2f, good) in April and kept on for Listed third over that same C&D (good to soft) last month; the step up to 1m4f can prompt further improvement but she has work to do with Eshaada and Gloria Mundi on that latest form and they also look good prospects for this trip.

Nottingham 2yo maiden winner (1m, soft) who was behind three of these when fourth in Newbury Listed race (1m2f, good to soft) last month; the first three should be suited by 1m4f but this twice-raced contender could derive the greatest benefit from the extra distance and is not ruled out.

Has shown promise across her four races, most recently staying on for fourth of six on handicap debut here (1m2f, soft); today's extra yardage is a plus but, with a peak RPR of just 79, she has loads to find in this field.

Won on debut at Nottingham (1m, soft) last November and followed up in Newbury Listed race (1m2f, good to soft) last month, beating Gloria Mundi by a neck; stayed on strongly and there can be optimism she'll be even better now tackling 1m4f; there are fast-ground winners in her pedigree; respected.

Won AW maiden last December on her second start and reappeared with creditable second to Noon Star in Wetherby novice (1m2f, good); respectable fifth in the Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, soft) since, when short of room late on, and could be capable of better for her top yard, but others have stronger credentials and Frankie Dettori rides stablemate Gloria Mundi.

Has worn this hood on both starts; close fourth on debut in 1m3f AW maiden last December and won at 25-1 on reappearance when thrown in at the deep end in Goodwood Listed race (1m2f, soft); others have stronger form but that was a highly creditable performance on just her second run and this half-sister to US Grade 2 winner Nancy From Nairobi is open to further progress.

Runner-up in Lingfield novice (1m2f, AW) last December on sole 2yo start and kept on for 5l third in Newmarket Listed race (1m2f, good to firm) on reappearance; considerable improvement needed to make an impact today but she's in top hands (one of three for yard) and her dam was a 1m4f Group 3 winner, so the step up in distance is in her favour; no surprise to see a big run.

Stormed home for eyecatching fourth on debut at Leopardstown (1m2f, good) in April and won a maiden over that same C&D (good) next time; takes a huge step up in grade and others have far more substance to their form, but she did it in fine style last time and promises to be suited by 1m4f.

Won on debut at Newbury (1m2f, good) in April and took big step forward when beaten a neck by Eshaada in a Listed race over that C&D (good to soft); like the winner, this Galileo filly promises to be suited by the step up to 1m4f and she should continue to progress for her top stable that has won three of the last four runnings; one of three for yard, Dettori rides.

RACING POST TIP

Noon Star
The Musidora form received a major boost when the winner Snowfall romped to victory in the Oaks, and NOON STAR is the selection having been a near-4l second at York. This blue-blooded filly is open to further improvement for Sir Michael Stoute, especially now upped to 1m4f. Divinely may have been second (albeit a distant one) in the Oaks granted a more favourable passage and Aidan O'Brien's sole representative is feared most. Like O'Brien, the Gosden stable has a fine recent record in this race and the very lightly raced Gloria Mundi is next on the list. Eshaada narrowly beat Frankie Dettori's mount at Newbury last time and is also respected.
