Equity Princess: Suited by soft and trounced useful Connoisseur Bay at Hamilton last time.

Hoh Chi Min: Up in trip after hampered, well-beaten fifth to Eastern Purple at Haydock (6f).

Dazilyn Lady: Found wanting when sixth of 10 in a Group Three at Chantilly. Now back in more suitable company.

Ffestiniog: Struggling to recapture form of three wins as a two-year- old - victories that the handicapper has not forgotten.

Jinsiyah: Has less on her plate than when chasing home Lilli Claire in Listed event at Epsom on Oaks day. Earlier won at Newmarket and performed well when third behind Speedfit Too, in Listed company at Kempton.

Wenda: Second to Daunting Lady in the Newbury mud first time out but beat only one home in the 1,000 Guineas and was possibly a non-stayer when third of four over 1m 3f at Lingfield.

Final Tango: Tremendous run on reappearance at Goodwood, being caught close home by Safio in all-aged company. Bound to improve further.

Akarita: Needs drop in class judged on well beaten fifth in Cheshire Oaks and third of five to Jibe at Newbury. Still a maiden. Drops back in distance.

Fizzed: Never going the pace over six furlongs behind Eastern Purple at Haydock last time and seemed more comfortable when edging out Julies Jewel by a neck over seven at Beverley (soft).

Confidante: Followed up her reappearance Thirsk win by beating more experienced rivals at Sandown. Should do even better now stepped up to a mile.

Aloha Dancer: Struggled to justify odds-on favouritism by a neck from Summer Deal at Warwick last time (having earlier been caught close home at Newmarket and Chester). May get caught again over this stiff mile.

Chim Chiminey: Soft-ground winner last season who, in hindsight, had an impossible task at Pontefract (1m 2f) in April when third to the subsequent Derby winner High-Rise. Off since but interesting now back to a mile.

Diamond White: Beaten out of sight when fourth to Royal Anthem at Newmarket last time.

Conclusion: JINSIYAH, a consistent and improving filly, takes the eye here, while there should be plenty to come from Final Tango and Confidante.
