Narrow success in 1m2f Listed event at Salisbury when last seen two months ago, taking record to 3-9; may well improve further as she's still unexposed at this trip and her yard is in sparkling form; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict
Big improvement in Ireland last term included Group 3 and Listed wins and she was runner-up in three other Group 3s; back with a dominant display in Listed event at Cork last month; last four runs have been at 1m4f and this drop back in trip raises a question (she's also unraced on firmer than good, should that prevail) but she is narrowly top on ratings.

Form & Verdict
Below form in 1m Listed race here one year ago, absent three months afterwards; returned in storming form, including when upped to 1m2f for wins in a Listed race at Yarmouth and Group 3 on good to soft at Newmarket; the latter was by half length from Lilac Road, whom she again accounted for at level weights when going agonisingly close in 1m1f Group 2 at Newmarket (good to firm) 11 days ago; should go very well again.

Made huge progress last season, including for a narrow win in the Listed Galtres Stakes here in August and when she forged clear in a Group 3 at Newmarket on final outing; goes very well on good ground and good to firm; the drop back in trip does not look a huge issue (last raced at about 1m2f last May) and she is a leading candidate.
