Pitched into Group 2 races on last two starts as 2yo; 100-1 for the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) and ran well from off the pace on her side, albeit 1l behind Magical Sunset (who gave her 8lb) over there and well adrift of the near-side principals; probably capable of better but it's certainly needed.

Three wins and two seconds from her five AW starts, most recently a smooth Listed success at Wolverhampton (7f); wasn't as well positioned as Shades Of Summer when second to that rival here on New Year's Day and she's weighted to turn the tables; this is a high-profile ride for 7lb claimer Jack Enright but he's won on her already and she has plenty in her favour.
