Cost 300,000gns as a yearling and half-sister to a Group 1 winner; swept from near last to first when looking good at Thirsk (6f, good) and raced far too freely when performing below market expectations in a Group 3 at Ascot; easy to give her another chance.

Placed in novice events on turf in her first four starts; the handicapper has been in command since but 5f didn't suit here last time and today's return to 7f, coupled with a first crack at a Class 6, should see her in a better light; stable also run Sighter.
