Form & Verdict

Impressive in both juvenile starts; easy winner of a Galway maiden on debut; looked out of the ordinary in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes here, accelerating past Meditate inside the final half-furlong to win going away; reportedly not quite at her peak going for the 1,000 Guineas; broke slowly, and lack of a run probably counted against her; still managed a fine effort in finishing second to the battle-hardened Mawj; holds a clear edge over Meditate and should now gain compensation.

Acts on soft; esteemed Irish filly who was impressive in both 2yo starts; clear second in the 1,000 Guineas then went one better in the Irish version, before the Coronation Stakes (on the round course here) and Matron saw her complete a Group 1 hat-trick; behind a couple of these rivals on the figures but gives the impression she may still rate higher and either way she's one of the main contenders.

Her Moyglare Stud Stakes success (on soft going) was the best performance by a 2yo filly in Europe last year; clear second in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket on reappearance despite not being quite at peak condition (a couple of weeks behind, according to trainer), then went one better in the Irish version at the Curragh (on good ground) where she was pushed out to beat Meditate and took record to 3-4; has now finished in front of that Ballydoyle rival on three occasions; top on the figures and gives the impression she hasn't reached her peak; strongly respected.

Form & Verdict

Seven-race juvenile campaign ended with a clear-cut success in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Keeneland; suffered only defeats at two, emphatically outpointed by Tahiyra in the Moyglare and second to Lezoo in the Cheveley Park, confirming Albany Stakes form with Mawj; soft ground not ideal when sixth to Mawj in the 1,000 Guineas; the main danger to Tahirya.
