Silk colours for Clerisy
Clerisy
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
Beaten favourite on her debut at Wolverhampton in December, but she stepped forward markedly on that performance to land a maiden at Newmarket last month. This requires a further step forward, but given her connections, that is not out of the question.
Won maiden at the Craven meeting at Newmarket; improvement definitely needed; Gr 1 entry

Took her form to a new level when making all to land a handicap at Ripon on her first start at three. Will find it harder to dominate in this field, however, and another jolt of improvement is demanded in this grade.
Made all and maintained a good pace to win 1m handicap at Ripon; this harder

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Got off the mark at the third attempt when running out a 20/1 winner of a conditions race at Kempton last month; fourth that day Nausha landed the Musidora here on Wednesday. Each-way claims if building on that run now back on turf.
Improved form when making all and holding on well on Kempton AW; more is needed

Flighty Almighty
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Tom Dascombe
Too keen to herself justice when fifth on her debut at Ascot last July. Put up a much-improved performance when landing a novice race at Wolverhampton last time out. This is far more competitive though, and she is expected to come up short.
More settled when winning on Wolverhampton AW (8.6f) last month; this race is way harder

Recorded progressive RPR’s in her four starts last year; last seen finishing second in a Listed race at Newbury in October. Should improve now stepping up to a mile, but she will need to do so to trouble the best of these.
2nd in Listed race at Newbury; this is a touch harder but further progress quite likely

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 15 wins from 58 in the last 14 days (26%)
Five-length winner of a Goodwood maiden on her debut, but she has failed to add to that success from her six starts since. Well down the field in a handicap at Salisbury on her return to action last month; not a guaranteed stayer this afternoon.
Big step up is needed on previous form and she is not a certain stayer at 1m on pedigree

Had some smart form to her name last season; fourth in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes. Half-sister to Usherette, who saw her form improve markedly from two to three. No surprise if this filly proves a cut above these rivals.
Good form last year; half-sister to good miler Usherette holds Group 1 Coronation entry

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 0 wins from 32 in the last 14 days (0%)
Justified favouritism to land a novice auction race at Leicester on her debut. Has run to a consistent level of form in defeat in her two starts so far this year, but she will need more to trouble the market principles today.
Useful; still open to improvement, so not ruled out even though more is needed from her

Winner of two of her three starts to date; sole defeat coming in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot. Steps back up in trip on her seasonal reappearance this afternoon, however, which does ask a question of her.
2yo evidence suggests she could well be the most talented of these; two Group 1 entries

Had subsequent Listed winner Maqsad behind in a maiden at Newmarket in September; close third in a Group 3 afterwards. Well held back at the aforementioned Newmarket on her return to action, however, and she now has a bit to prove.
Useful 2yo form but last month's reappearance run was well below par (pulled hard)

Built on a promising debut for these connections when landing a Nottingham maiden by seven lengths last week. Entitled to respect if continuing her upward curve, albeit this is by far her toughest assignment to date.
Won very well at Nottingham at 1-2 last week; previous Newmarket second is good form

Verdict

This Listed race may well go to TWIST 'N' SHAKE, whose reappearance second to a smart filly at Newmarket is smart form.
