Went close in AW handicap (9.4f) in February, when dictating a steady pace, and something was possibly amiss at Salisbury (good to firm; has won on good) recently when back from a break; however, vulnerable in this hot race unless cheekpieces prompt improvement.

Went very close on first three starts (7f, AW/good) before game win on handicap at Nottingham (1m, good to soft) last month; didn't have much to spare and improvement is needed in this much better race, but today's big-field scenario could suit this tough sort.

Relatively exposed but she ran her best race of the year when fourth of four in an Epsom Listed race against males recently (7f, good to soft) where the way she kept on suggests she's well worth a crack at 1m; the pick of her 2yo Group 3 and Listed form came on ground softer than good.

Made winning reappearance in C&D handicap (good to soft) last month and respectable third in strong handicap at Haydock (1m, heavy) next time, also against males, when not enjoying the best of runs; her come-from-behind style is a likely asset in this and slow ground would be another positive.

Eight-race maiden who left her previous form behind when sixth in the Irish 1,000 Guineas (1m, heavy), beaten about 3l; joint-topweight today and has to prove last time was no one-off, but it was a performance in keeping with her fine pedigree and she's respected for the O'Brien/Moore team.

2yo turf winner (6f, good to firm; unraced on slower than good) who was no match for Glesga Gal when runner-up on last month's handicap and seasonal debut at Wolverhampton (7f, AW); however, could be sharper for that run and the extra furlong may suit; still lightly raced and in good hands to progress.

Won at Newmarket (7f, soft) last October on sole 2yo start; has pulled hard when mid-division in Group 3 and Listed races this year (7f/1m, good), including in this hood last time, but the expected strong pace in this big field could help her settle better; improvement is therefore possible.

Only fifth behind Glesga Gal at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) last month when bidding for a hat-trick but was very wide into the straight and again left the impression that this longer trip could be a better fit; still looked a work in progress for her earlier wins (7f, AW/good) and she could be a big improver for her top trainer; has shown promise on good to soft (unraced on softer).

Decisive win at Newmarket (7f, soft) last August on sole 2yo start and 1m2f has proved too far on her two runs this year; a strongly run 1m could be ideal for this well-bred, headstrong Godolphin filly and she's not written off, but she does have something to prove after those defeats last month.

Runner-up then a last-gasp win on her first two starts last November (1m, AW); tailed off on reappearance in Newbury Listed race (1m2f, good to soft) and something to prove on the back of that, but she was well backed into 6-1 and this mark could prove lenient judged on her initial promise.

Won on debut at Newbury (7f, good) in April and, after going close under a penalty at Wolverhampton (7f, AW), she returned to winning ways in a recent Brighton novice (1m, good to firm); makes handicap debut in a very hot race but she did it readily last time and could continue to progress.

RACING POST TIP

Urban Violet
Having won by eight and a half lengths at Sandown two starts ago, URBAN VIOLET may not be stopped by today's 10lb higher mark and her subsequent disappointing run there probably came too soon, just seven days later. Mamba Wamba is exposed compared to the rest of these but her associated toughness is a positive, as could be the step up to 1m, and she is second choice. The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Samoot is another who could be suited by this new distance and she has accumulated a couple of wins this year despite still looking a work in progress. Glesga Gal has thrived in the blinkers and is also respected, along with C&D winner Teodolina, but there are loads of other dangers to consider as well, such as the unexposed fillies Camdeboo, Belief, Beheld, Riknnah and Companionship.
