Won Leopardstown maiden (1m2f, soft to heavy) last month on her third start and followed up in Listed race at Newbury (1m2f, good), showing a game attitude to repel Bluestocking; could continue to progress for her top Irish trainer and there's every chance 1m4f will suit; possible contender.

Won a Group 3 at the Curragh (1m, yielding to soft) last October on final 2yo start and went close in Group 3 at Naas (1m2f, good to yielding) last month; the way she kept on last time suggests this step up to 1m4f could be a positive and she's an each-way possible.

Ran out an easy winner on her debut at Haydock in May (1m2f, good to firm) and created a huge impression when sauntering clear of six rivals in a Listed event at Goodwood in June (1m2f, good to firm); supplemented for the Ribblesdale and sent off an odds-on favourite but she didn't look to get home over 1m4f having made a big move from the back of the field from 4f out (raced wide into the home straight); the Goodwood promise isn't easily forgotten and she's a fascinating contender despite a penalty and forecast slower ground than she's tackled thus far.

Al Asifah is the yard's chief hope and this filly was no match for two of these in Listed race at Newbury (1m2f, good) last month; didn't need to improve to win easily at 4-9 in Newbury maiden (1m4f, good to firm) a fortnight ago; however, this very lightly raced Frankel filly is from the family of the stable's St Leger winner Logician and may take a big step forward at some point.
