G3 - 1703m – Turf

1

Czabo

Her four wins have all been gained on a slow surface and the very testing ground at Naas in March suited her better than her rivals gaining a gutsy win in that G3 over 1600m, although only three lengths separated the first six home. 

2

Silver Step

A French-trained filly but her last four starts have been elsewhere including victory in a G3 over 1600m in Milan last September. She was soundly beaten in a G2 at Newmarket last month, her trainer blaming the fast ground that day. 

3

Absolute Blast

Has plenty of stamina, winning over further than this. Interesting that she switches to turf, having become one of the top UK performers on the all-weather this year - including three wins. This G3 turf encounter has been a target for some time.

4

Crowning Glory

It is positive that both her runs at Epsom have been good including a course and distance victory last August, responding well to pressure. Nothing special from her two ventures this year so it must be hoped that the return to Epsom helps.

5

Elbereth

Won a 2000m handicap here in 2015. She ran a cracker last time, leading in a G2 at Newmarket and only beaten by a top class filly over that 1800m. Her trainer was considering running her in a G1 here on Friday, so she is clearly held in high regard.

6

Epsom Icon

The best run of her career came in this race last year when she comfortably beat some better fancied rivals. However she has largely struggled at other tracks since, ridden by nine different jockeys in last ten races. Best on a good or slow surface.

7

Laugh Aloud

The figures suggest that her two best runs - winning Listed events at Newmarket last season and Goodwood last month - have come on a quick surface so drying conditions will help. She was certainly impressive from the front in that Goodwood event.

8

Silver Meadow

This French-trained four-year-old filly has only raced eight times in her career. However she looks smart judging on her close third in a Listed race at Chantilly last month, form which looks quite solid.

9

Kilmah 

Won a G3 over 1400m at Goodwood last August, leading from gate to wire. However she has been soundly beaten in all three starts since most recently in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket last month, prominent before fading right out in that G1 Classic.

10

Tisbutadream

Has won four of her last five starts though three of those were handicaps on all-weather surfaces. However she proved her turf credentials with a tidy victory over the straight 1600m at Ascot last month, though only carrying a featherweight that day.

11

Urban Fox

A cheaply purchased but talented two-year-old who won three times. She showed that she had trained on when runner-up to a highly-regarded filly over 1400m at Newbury in April. Ran respectably in the 1000 Guineas considering that she was hampered.
