52,000gns yearling; by Mehmas; dam 6f 2yo winner (including Listed; RPR 96) out of unraced half-sister to useful 6f/7f winner Courageous; has an attractive pedigree and her stable won this last season with a filly making her debut; fits the bill on paper.

Had a better draw than the subsequent Coventry winner Rashabar when off the mark at Chester (6f, good) but that form still looks good now and she followed up with a no-nonsense success in the Woodcote at Epsom (good to soft; prominent throughout); brings strong form claims into this Listed race.

Scored nicely even allowing for favourable draw at Chester (6f, good) three weeks ago, building on debut promise (5f, soft); in excellent hands and looks open to further improvement; one for the shortlist.

Unplaced in AW races in March/April; has an experience advantage over her rivals but will probably need to improve to get off the mark.

Invincible Army colt who made a promising debut when second of eight at Southwell (5f, AW) last month, disputing the lead for much of the way; represents a top stable and probably the one to beat.

Soft ground perhaps not ideal when odds-on flop on second start; warm favourite again in maiden at Doncaster (5f, good to firm) four weeks later and always prominent to win it; off nearly two months but more to give.
