Looked a nice prospect when making a winning debut at Newbury (7f, soft) in April and probably put up a better effort when fourth of eight in a York Listed event (1m, good to firm) four weeks later; off three months since, but she is still a major player in this field.

Coronation Stakes entry; late foal; half-sister to 7.5f-1m2f winner Mujtaba (RPR 118); dam dual South African 1m Group 1 winner (stayed 1m2f; 104); second favourite, won six-runner maiden at Newbury (7f, soft) four weeks ago in clearcut fashion, always prominent and leading final 1f; this is a far more demanding race but she's a useful prospect, at the least.

Out of a well-related 1m-1m2f winner (including US Listed; RPR 100); 2-1 favourite at Newbury (7f, soft) in April and she gave it a good shot from the front before before finishing runner-up behind her main market rival; just about sets the standard on that promising debut effort and she's a big player on this switch to AW.
