Outran her 40-1 odds in Listed grade at Newmarket (6f) on second outing; hasn't backed up that form in two Group races since and current rating may flatter her; drop back in grade is the main cause for optimism.

All runs over 6f on good or faster; narrow Windsor winner who was no match for a good Godolphin filly here before finishing down the field in a Group 3 at Ascot's King George meeting; looks vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Solid third (behind two fillies who subsequently ran well in the Queen Mary) on debut, then justified favouritism at Bath (5f, firm); gives the impression she'll be suited by this extra furlong; related to Listed/Group winners for this stable; should progress further; possibilities.

Solid record in sprint maidens on good/firmer, having been placed at Newmarket (on the other course) and Goodwood then justified favouritism at Ripon; form has substance and she's the type to do better still; appealing contender.

Best of seven runs when keeping on well for close third in Naas Listed race (5f, soft) in July; slightly disappointing after racing a bit too freely in Newbury Listed race last month but won't mind what the weather does here and can bounce back.

Looked pretty useful from the word go and won a Ripon maiden on third start, but it was her narrowly beaten third of seven in Listed race at Naas (5f, soft; first on her side) last Wednesday which really catches the eye in this context.

Off the mark on her second start at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) in June and a creditable fourth of 12 on nursery debut at York (6f, good to soft) on her penultimate outing; didn't enjoy a clear run when fifth of seven at Leicester (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago and each-way claims granted a smoother trip this time.

Plenty to find on her Windsor efforts; showed improvement to win conditions race at Saint-Cloud (6.5f, soft) but it remains to be seen whether she can transfer that form back to home soil; cheekpieces applied.

Half-sister to three winners who sold for 60,000euros as a yearling; got well behind here a month ago but stayed on takingly to make the frame over 5f on soft ground; that form looks decent with the winner following up and the second not far away in a Listed race at York; this extra furlong should benefit.
