Form & Verdict

Beaten roughly 1l when third on debut here and that race has already produced a winner; plenty to like about her pedigree and if she improves plenty from her first start, as many do from this yard, she could be hard to beat; Moore sides with her over well bred newcomer Dower House.

Group 3 winner who is Aidan O'Brien's sole representative, so is worth a second look; has run respectably in some Group 1 races but she's 0-5 in such contests and was below par behind Via Sistina in the Pretty Polly last time; others are more compelling.
