Form & Verdict

Sole victory came in a Group 3 here in October; very consistent this season without winning, including when touched off by Caroline Street at Naas and when runner-up in the Ribblesdale; touched off in a Group 2 over this trip at Deauville last month; effective from 1m2f to 1m4f and very versatile as to ground; one for the shortlist here.

Followed a half length defeat in a Group 3 at Naas with another second in the Ribblesdale splitting Warm Heart and Bluestocking; met a bit of trouble in running, so it's not impossible she could get closer to Warm Heart; handles an ease in the ground.

Appreciated the cut in the ground when running out a convincing winner of a Group 3 at Gowran in July; sets a standard on that form but would not want the ground too lively.

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.

Group 3 winner who is Aidan O'Brien's sole representative, so is worth a second look; has run respectably in some Group 1 races but she's 0-5 in such contests and was below par behind Via Sistina in the Pretty Polly last time; others are more compelling.
