Form & Verdict

Major promise in 6f maidens, finishing second at this venue then impressively going one better at Newbury (good) where she won in the style of a potential Listed/Group filly; gives the impression she'll cope well with this drop in distance; one to consider.

Winner of the Molecomb and the Flying Childers, both over 5f; maiden success came at 6f but she flopped, having raced too freely, in the Cheveley Park Stakes when returned to this trip on final 2yo start; incurs 4lb penalty and chance largely depends on whether she settles better.

Raced only on good/firmer; ready winner over C&D in April; solid performances in Listed grade since, finishing second in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot (form working out well) then comfortably going one better in the Dragon Stakes at Sandown; progressive colt who has leading claims.

Irish colt who has got better with each start in maidens, most recently looking useful at Navan (5f, good to firm) where he motored clear in the closing stages for a 6l success; changed ownership since; sire Cotai Glory won this contest in 2014 and trainer bagged this prize in 2020; interesting.
