Did the job well when landing a listed event at Leopardstown (1¾m) in July but her limitations have been exposed since and it's likely she'll find a few too strong again.

Successful at 1m 4f and 1m 6f on good ground. Beaten 6l behind Anapurna when seventh of 9 on her latest outing in the Group 1 Qatar Prix De Royallieu at ParisLongchamp over 1m 6f (good to soft) earlier this month.

Bombed out in Oaks at Epsom but has done precious little wrong otherwise this season, pulling out a bit more improvement when taking Group 2 Blandford at the Curragh last time. Acts on soft.

At The Races Verdict

John Gosden appears to hold all the aces and may be able to prevent Aidan O'Brien from landing this contest for the third year in succession. His Anapurna landed the Oaks and left behind her Vermeille disappointment when scooping another Group 1 at Longchamp last time. Frankie Dettori gave her a cracker from the front on that occasion, though he instead elects to ride Ribblesdale heroine STAR CATCHER here. The daughter of Sea The Stars confirmed her Ascot superiority over Fleeting, who appears the leading Ballydoyle hope this afternoon, in the Irish Oaks (with Pink Dogwood and Antonia De Vega also in arrears) and always looked in command when striking again at Longchamp over Arc trials weekend.

Timeform Verdict

A chance is taken on ANTONIA DE VEGA who was impressive in a soft-ground Newbury listed event on her reappearance in June and returns from another break with her yard in excellent form. John Gosden's Star Catcher and Anapurna have won 2 Group 1s apiece this season and rate obvious big threats. Aidan O'Brien is going for a hat-trick in this and Fleeting may prove best of his quartet.
