Second to Jackie Oh in a heavy-ground maiden in March; tongue tied when front-running at the Curragh on last two starts, landing a 1m1f Group 3 (good) and creditable fifth in a 1m2f Group 2 (good to yielding); heavy defeats in the Oaks and C&D Ribblesdale when she tried 1m4f in June; in much better form lately but still needs to show something very new.

Irish wins have been at 6f/7f; Listed 1m winner in France in June; has a bit to find with Cigamia on Fairyhouse running but emerged with credit from a trip to America, finishing second in the Grade 3 Saratoga Oaks on her first attempt beyond 1m; good chance.

Went down with a spirited effort behind Red Riding Hood (Group 2 fifth on next start) over today's trip at Curragh, that on the back of fine effort when second at Saratoga; previous Longchamp winner is a solid performer at this level and the first-time cheekpieces won't need to bring about a whole lot more for her to earn a fourth career win.
