10 Year Trends: Masaka winner Nasij can carry a penalty to victory.

Horses carrying penalties have fared quite well, finishing 6712623412.
A good mix of proven performers and
unexposed fillies on show here. Geoff Wragg's two
previous runners both won, so Miss Ivanhoe may prove the pick of the lightly raced fillies, but
Nasij, winner of the Masaka Stakes, sets a good standard, and with penalised runners having gone well in the main, she is the one to beat.

lFigured in the top five in the market, 10/10
lAdjusted Postmark of at least 106, 10/10
lDistance winner, 9/10
lWon at a Class C or higher level, 8/10
Despite the good record of fancied horses no favourite has obliged since 1992. However, seven favourites have finished second in the past ten years.
The four horses who had won that season had landed a six-furlong conditions event.
Only one filly has triumphed in the past decade.
A tight contest with preference for Striking Ambition, who beat two of today's rivals in a similar event at Ascot.
