Two Group contests feature at Ascot on the weekend, beginning with the Group 3 Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes on Saturday Afternoon.

DESERT DREAMER (3/1) has shown a fair level of promise on her first five starts for Stuart Williams and could well land some black type here.

The two-year-old has performed well in top-class company on her last two starts, finishing second on both starts at Newmarket.

Her one start at Ascot didn’t go to plan last month, after finishing six and a half lengths off the pace in the Queen Mary Stakes.

The Oasis Dream filly can show further improvement here and her experience at this level should benefit her.

SYSTEM (3/1) has impressed on her two starts to date for Richard Hannon and her rapid rise to the top could well continue here.

The two-year-old finished second on her debut before getting the better of the favourite in Listed company at Newmarket, winning by a neck in the Empress Fillies’ Stakes.

She’s proven to be useful over this distance and could well have more to offer in the locker.

NYMPHADORA (8/1) is given her first start over six furlongs for Andrew Balding, after suggesting she needed further at Royal Ascot.

The No Nay Never won over the minimal distance at York back in May but struggled with the pace in the Group 2 Queen Anne Stakes last month.

She could be effective over this distance and her true potential could arise over this new trip.

NAZANIN (9/1) is unexposed and could benefit with Hollie Doyle booked in the saddle while Tom Dascombe’s DELMONA (10/1) has two and a quarter lengths to find on System after finishing fifth in the Listed Empress Fillies’ Stakes.

ATTAGIRL (11/1) is given her chance to claim some black-type after a comfortable success in a 6f maiden at Haydock for Karl Burke and Ismail Mohammed’s ZAIN CLAUDETTE (14/1) holds some intriguing pedigree but is best watched on her first start in Group company.

CRAZYLAND (20/1) is stepped up to six furlongs for the first time under Clive Cox, while James Tate’s EL HADEEYAH (20/1) thundered home on her first start over the distance eleven days ago.

MISS CALCULATION (28/1) will have to prove herself on her first start on faster ground and George Boughey’s SASSY RASCAL (33/1) faces a tough first start over six furlongs.
