Dam a Listed/Group 3 winner; big effort when beaten just half a length on debut, showing signs of inexperience in the closing stages; the winner (Aidan O'Brien trained Derby entrant) had experience in his favour and this gelding should have learnt plenty from that run; down in trip and must have a strong chance with improvement likely.
