Strong juvenile form tying in with 105-rated stablemate Lumiere Rock; only half a length behind that filly when third on debut at Galway; beaten 3l in fourth behind her in Curragh Group 3 over 1m in October; did not live up to her billing as odds-on favourite on return here early this month; only 3/4l in front of Time To Soar then.

Fourth in a 1m Group 3 at two, course winner of a maiden over just short of 1m2f this time last year; next two runs implied that progress had stalled but she ran a big race at 40-1 when fourth in a 1m4f Listed event at Galway (Enfranchise second at 50-1) and backed that up with a solid Naas third behind stablemate Dancing Tango.
