Handed tough task for this first rules start but she's with a leading yard and changed hands for £165,000 after winning on her debut in an Irish maiden point (3m, heavy) in October; the 3l runner-up Diva Luna won a Listed bumper at Market Rasen on her rules debut; brings bags of potential.

Comes from a yard with a modest strike-rate in bumpers, so it's very much to her credit that she made a successful debut at Aintree (good to soft; 12-1) last month, leading 1f out and holding on gamely; she'll need to improve to follow up in this stronger contest but that's certainly possible; nicely bred, she could be a useful prospect.

Her useful pedigree hints she'll thrive when tackling further but she was a clear second of 14 on last month's debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft; 7-1) and may have bumped into a highly talented mare; dam did very well for connections; one to watch in the betting (one of two for yard).

Good pedigree; plenty of positives to take out of both her runs, particularly the latest at Sandown (soft) where she raced keenly towards the head of affairs before surrendering late on (beaten just under 6l); today's drier ground could work in her favour; chance.
