Form & Verdict

Made a winning return in maiden company before a mightily impressive wide margin victory in the Cheshire Oaks; showed that was no fluke when going close in the Oaks and conditions have come right for her this time; could be hard to beat.

Comfortable maiden win at Cork (1m, soft to heavy) on the first of two runs as 2yo; placed this season in Group 3 at Saint-Cloud (10.5f, soft; just behind Sea Of Roses) and Oaks Trial at Lingfield (1m4f, AW); 6-5 favourite in the latter and always prominent but Eternal Hope headed her 1f out and went on; there should be a very different rhythm to this race and she should still be open to improvement.

Plentiful big-race entries; comfortable maiden winner on last September's debut at Cork (1m, soft to heavy); disappointing 5-4 favourite in Group 3 one month later but she reappeared with a better effort at same level when third of eight at Saint-Cloud (10.5f, soft) six weeks ago; should stay and surely has more to give.

Getting better with each run; in behind Savethelastdance in a Leopardstown maiden prior to winning over this trip back at Leopardstown in May; took her form to a new level when runner-up in a Group 3 at Cork last time; more to come and will handle conditions but probably has a bit too much to find.

Won a Leopardstown maiden in May; second since in a 1m4f Group 3 at Cork and 1m2f Listed race at the Curragh, with a creditable seventh of eight in the Irish Oaks in between; returning to 1m4f can help with further improvement but it is needed, in the first-time headgear.
