Still races freely but better than she was in this race last year and won the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock (1m4f, good to firm) on latest start, racing in second most of the way, going on over 2f out and rallying to see off the strong challenge of Sea Silk Road; needs better still but respected on the back of that career-best performance.

5yo who was much improved initially this season, notably for 1m4f Listed win at Goodwood (good to soft) in May; plenty of experience of soft ground but tailed off when upped to 1m6f on heavy at Goodwood two weeks ago; forgiven that given the extreme conditions but still needs overall improvement.

Can make the running, as when winning twice in very small fields over 1m4f at Goodwood, latterly this June in Listed race; the Lancashire Oaks in July was not as good as her Group-race form last autumn (second in this race) and she was soundly beaten at Goodwood latest, albeit trying 1m6f on heavy going (first run on softer than good); needs a return to peak form.

Can front-run; disappointing on reappearance at York in May and unproven at today's trip (tried it in the 2021 Ribblesdale); however, she might have needed the run last time and has the best form in the field on account of last year's 1m2f Group 1 exploits; best efforts have come on good/faster but she showed promise on good to soft early in career; there's stamina in her pedigree and she could be a key player.
