2-2 on AW, winning fillies' novice events at Newcastle (7f) and Kempton (6f) as a 2yo; tanked her way through a 6f handicap at Windsor on her reappearance but her finishing effort was blunted by the soft ground; dropped 1lb and still has potential; interesting.

Two wins on slow turf for Johnny Murtagh in Ireland last autumn; low-key stable debut in May but her latest Kempton sixth, when short of room and eased in the closing stages, was more encouraging; even with a clear run she might not have finished in front of the reopposing Holy Fire there, though.

Looked good at Wolverhampton on her reappearance/handicap debut, completing a hat-trick in the process; struggled on fast turf at York's Dante meeting and perhaps went off a bit too quickly at Lingfield last month; could resume her progress but the jury is out for now and she's drawn widest.
