Form & Verdict

Her two peak efforts were over 7f with a Listed win (heavy) last October and fourth to Olivia Maralda at Epsom (good to firm) this June; not too harshly judged on Royal Ascot, seeing as she came first in the far-side group, but her Listed run at Sandown last time was rather underwhelming.

Second in C&D Group 3 (good to soft) last August; Irish 1,000 Guineas proved too tough on reappearance but she responded with second of 29 from the back in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) and that puts her high on the list today.
