Form: 51-414
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
Progressive earlier this term, albeit in handicaps. She couldn't follow up a win at Musselburgh when held off her new mark at Newmarket in June. This is a big step up in grade and she falls plenty short on the ratings.
Beaten fav latest, but earlier progressive with a maiden and two handicap wins; potential

T: George Peckham
Form: 1-7356
Age: 4

Progressive last year but hasn't quite got it together this term, with a fifth in an All-Weather Listed contest her best run. She was making her first mile start when only sixth at Deauville last month and stamina remains an issue after that.
Progressed well with three wins over 7f last season, but held this term, over 1m latest

La Figlia
J: Jim Crowley
T: Peter Chapple-Hyam
Form: 24-471
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
1,800,000 euro daughter of Frankel who hasn't quite lived up to her pedigree yet. Her latest novice victory at Chelmsford was a step in the right direction, but a prior heavy defeat in Group 3 company clouds her claims somewhat.
Top pedigree; has run well in defeat at this level and won novice race latest; chance

Lincoln Rocks

T: David O'Meara
Form: -32507
Age: 5
Weight: 9-2
Front-runner who had been running well in pattern races prior to losing her way in recent starts. This is a drop in grade, but she has a three-pound penalty and needs to leave her recent form well behind. Rain is a big positive.
Won Pontefract Listed last year & 2nd in this under 3lb pen; lost way, but possible player

Queen Of Time
J: Nicola Currie
T: Henry Candy
Form: 2-U657
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
Running a very good race when prior to unseating at Goodwood in May, three runs since well below that standard. She was last in Listed company two weeks ago at Ascot and something seems to be amiss.
Quite a good, light campaign last year, twice ran well in Listed, but struggled this term

Unforgetable Filly
J: Ben Curtis
T: Hugo Palmer
Form: 00-304
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
German Group 2 winner last term, struggling on her first two starts of the campaign. There were signs of better at Ascot last time and a return to her best form, even with a penalty, would give her very strong claims.
Won Musselburgh Listed/G2 German 1,000 Guineas in 2017; struggled since but promise latest

Agrotera
J: Jamie Spencer
T: Ed Walker
Form: 6-211
Age: 3
Weight: 8-9
Has taken giant steps forward this term, impressive winning the Sandringham at Royal Ascot last time. She remains completely unexposed and Lincoln Rock should ensure a strong pace for her to aim at, with any rain little concern.
Had four starts, won Windsor maiden/followed up in Cl2 Sandringham handicap at Royal Ascot

Maggies Angel
J: Paul Hanagan
T: Richard Fahey
Form: 223-29
Age: 3
Weight: 8-9
Useful sprinting two-year-old who was placed on return over seven furlongs in June, last in a Group 3 at York last time. Her patchy profile remains a worry and her pedigree gives little hope she'll be staying this new trip.
Was decent sprinting 2yo & 2nd in 7f Listed on return, but held latest & stamina to prove

J: Yuga Kawada

Won a German Group 3 on only her second start, leaving those connections after a heavy Group 1 defeat. She shaped with some promise on stable/seasonal debut, but does need a bit more to be winning again. Interesting jockey booking.
Won 7f German Group 3 last year; struggled since but could bounce back and get competitive

New Day Dawn
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Tom Dascombe
Form: 51
Age: 3
Weight: 8-9
Built on a modest debut with an impressive victory over seven furlongs here in July. She showed a lightning turn of foot and although this is much tougher, she's unexposed and her pedigree suggests she can do much better with further racing.
Made all in 7f fast-ground novice here on second start; loads more needed, but promising

Form: 4122-2
Age: 3
Weight: 8-9
Runner-up in a Listed contest at Newbury on her final 2017 start, though that form isn't particularly strong. She was a shade disappointing on seasonal return and needs the rain to get right into the ground to have a strong chance.
Has been runner-up at this level; now needs her best run yet; rain a plus
