Form & Verdict

Curragh winner over 6f last May first time out; fourth in a 7f Group 3 event here in July; signed off with front-running 7f Listed win on soft ground here in September; should go close with normal improvement from her run over 7f here five weeks ago, though closely matched with fifth-placed Nightcliff.

Went down with a spirited effort behind Red Riding Hood (Group 2 fifth on next start) over today's trip at Curragh, that on the back of fine effort when second at Saratoga; previous Longchamp winner is a solid performer at this level and the first-time cheekpieces won't need to bring about a whole lot more for her to earn a fourth career win.

Excellent second when the top-class Victoria Road initiated a four-race winning sequence in a 7f maiden at Gowran last August; did not quite match that display when fourth behind American Sonja over 6f at the Curragh in September; got a win on the board at Dundalk last month, but may be vulnerable at this level.
