Lullaby Moon

Trainer: Ralph Beckett Jockey: James Doyle

Had a 4-6 record last year, bagging valuable Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar before ending her campaign with 7f Chantilly Group 3 success (both heavy). Disappointing in France on reappearance, though.

Mother Earth

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Ryan Moore

Highly likeable filly who landed the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and found only one too good in the French version last month. Sets the standard and should put up another very bold showing.


Trainer: Mrs J. Harrington Jockey: Shane Foley

Useful 2yo who was last seen finishing down the field in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. This is a tough assignment back from 7 months off.

*Oodnadatta has been declared a non-runner on account of the ground


Trainer: Donnacha Aidan O’Brien Jockey: G. M. Ryan

Three-time winner as a 2yo, including the Moyglare Stud Stakes. Shaped as if in need of her reappearance a couple of months ago and she’d be a player on her best form.

Fev Rover

Trainer: Richard Fahey Jockey: Paul Hanagan

Smart filly who ran a huge race to finish third in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, then didn’t get a clear run in the Irish equivalent last month. Likeable sort who can’t be discounted.

Pretty Gorgeous

Trainer: Joseph Patrick O’Brien Jockey: Frankie Dettori

Impressive as a 2yo, signing off with a comfortable success in the Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket. Liable to strip fitter for her sub-par return in the Irish 1000 Guineas, so she’s a definite player.

Empress Josephine

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Seamie Heffernan

Tremendously well-bred filly who surged home to get up late in the Irish 1000 Guineas. No reason to think this vastly quicker ground will be an inconvenience.

Snow Lantern

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Sean Levey

Out of Sky Lantern and confirmed debut promise when impressive Newbur maiden winner on return. Latest third to Primo Bacio in listed company was a touch disappointing, but she remains with potential.

Alcohol Free

Trainer: Andrew Balding Jockey: Oisin Murphy

Generally progressive filly who landed the Cheveley Park last year. Only fifth to Mother Earth in the 1000 Guineas last time and no obvious reason to think she’ll reverse the form.

Flirting Bridge

Trainer: Henry de Bromhead Jockey: W. M. Lordan

Won as a juvenile and seemed to improve her form when runner-up in the 1000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown in May. She’s way short of the standard required to compete in this, though.

Primo Bacio

Trainer: Ed Walker Jockey: Andrea Atzeni

Highly progressive filly who quickened up in most impressive fashion to readily land a listed event at York 35 days ago. Big step up in class but she’s worth her place.

*Primo Bacio has been declared a non-runner on account of the ground


Trainer: P. Schiergen Jockey: David Egan

Left all previous form behind when making all in sensational style to land the German 1000 Guineas, so no surprise she’s made the trip to have a crack at this. Warrants respect.


Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute Jockey: Richard Kingscote

Highly promising type who has landed both starts in novices with any amount in hand, cruising away to land prohibitive odds at Redcar 32 days ago. Marked step up in grade is understandable.
