Soundly beaten fourth last month on first two starts (6f/7f, good) before winning a maiden at Naas (6f, good to yielding) last Thursday; open to further improvement and worth a second look having travelled from Ireland, but a sizeable step forward is needed if she's to threaten.

Beaten in major races won by Porta Fortuna, Sacred Angel and Darnation last summer but looked an improved filly in the Nell Gwyn here (7f, good) on reappearance, gamely beating Dance Sequence by a neck; supplemented for this contest at a cost of £30,000; may well build on her trial win provided she stays the new trip (mixed messages in pedigree on that score).

Had plenty of racing as a 2yo but she took it well, winning three times, and she confirmed she'd trained on when landing a 7f fillies' handicap at Southwell 16 days ago; 3lb rise fair enough but racecourse evidence suggests she could do with the ground drying out a bit.
