Was well beaten on her debut at Dundalk in February but improved plenty on that when 3/4l behind Rekero on return at Gowran recently (not clear run); should improve plenty from that, while the step-up in trip can suit, so is one to be interested in.

Very well-bred filly has been sent off favourite all three starts; fourth on debut at Naas in the spring and, on second run back after a lay-off, unlucky third (hampered late) at the Curragh last week; was finishing well over 1m4f that day and looks sure to go close although this will probably be the softest ground she has encountered.
