Was the stable's second-string but just got up to win a 1m maiden at Gowran last time; drops in trip but should be sharper today and Foley prefers her to the other Harrington runner.

Ran well on her first two attempts in stakes company; third in a Listed race over 1m2f at Naas, 1 1/2l behind today's rival Empress Of Beauty; better form when close fourth in Curragh Group 3 over 1m1f; stamina stretched by 1m4f on her final start; respected back in distance now.

1-15 on the Flat but stayed well; beaten between 8l and 21l in three Irish maidens won by smart novices (hooded the last twice) and it could well be that today's quicker ground will benefit, as was the case on the Flat; an interesting handicap debutante; races prominently.
