Best form has been on good or soft ground; spoiled her finishing effort by hanging left at Newmarket (1m1f Group 2) on seasonal debut but ran creditably on the figures despite probably hitting the front too soon; looks interesting on that form but she finished last behind Breege at Epsom 18 days ago and needs to bounce back after that disappointing effort.

Won her first two races of last season (including a 1m2f Listed race here on soft) before withdrawn from the Oaks (upset in the stalls) when only 5-1; placed later in the season in a strong 1m2f Listed race (good) and 1m4f Group 3 here (good to firm) before a below-par run on Champions' Day; still to prove fully that she can compete at this level but the potential is there for sure.

Withdrawn from the Oaks (5-1) when upset in the stalls, then ran as if something was amiss in the French version; those were the low points but she won comfortably here (1m2f, soft) in May and was a creditable second at Salisbury (1m2f, good) on latest start, both Listed races; stays 1m2f well but not sure to get 1m4f on pedigree; one of the top contenders on form.
