Beaten by Zarinsk on debut at the Curragh but stepped up on that when winning a good maiden at the same venue last month; very likely still on the upgrade and probably the one to beat here.

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.

Mid-division behind Zarinsk on her Curragh debut but stepped up significantly on that when beating La Dolce Vita in a Gowran maiden last month; gave the impression that there is still plenty of improvement in her and could go close.

Won a 7f Gowran maiden in yielding ground last June before finishing second in the Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown; was below that level in similarly strong company twice after; unraced on ground this soft but plenty by her sire handle it; useful claimer's 7lb an asset.

Form & Verdict

Did enough to land a land a Curragh maiden in May (ahead of Never Ending Story and With Love); looked more one-paced when fourth to Statuette in a Group 2 at the same venue last month; step up to 7f should suit her well and looks sure to go well here.

Some creditable runs for Jessica Harrington in 2yo Group races in Ireland last year but has to better that form today and she was well beaten on last month's stable debut; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.
