Form & Verdict

Finished about 12l behind Mimikyu in the Park Hill when last seen, though possibly raced on the slowest ground in the straight; has a solid and progressive record otherwise, including Listed win at Chester (1m6f, good) the time before; this Sea The Stars filly could well rate higher still; remains of major interest.

Won 1m6f Group 3 at York (good to firm) this May by a short head, always prominent; further battling performances over that trip since when second in Group 2s at Longchamp and Goodwood; well worth this first crack at 2m but she's bottom of this illustrious group on ratings.

Yet to race on ground firmer than good; career record is 3-7; form dipped on last two attempts over 1m4f but progressive otherwise and landed the 2022 Park Hill at Doncaster (good to soft) on sole start at about 1m6f; leading player back up in distance, even with her Group 2 penalty.

Has won on soft; absent since finishing midfield in the 2m4f handicap at Glorious Goodwood; some creditable efforts otherwise this term, including in York Group 3 and the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot; on a ten-race losing sequence and doesn't seem the easiest to place but has possibilities dropped back in trip/grade.

Stablemate of Mimikyu; still unexposed having raced just three times, most recently fifth in Listed grade at Lingfield (1m5f, AW) last October when beaten favourite but not disgraced on form and shaping as if 1m6f will suit; this daughter of Galileo could well improve further; interesting.

Stays 1m6f; won five handicaps at Hamilton last summer and a Listed race at Abu Dhabi last December; 0-10 in the meantime and has threatened only once in her seven races back in Britain, with a limited response from the handicapper, so she looks low on the list.
