Out of Oaks winner Dancing Rain and is a half-sister to the yard's Jalmoud (1m4f Listed winner; 110) and Magic Lily (UAE Group 2 winner; also won first time up; RPR 107); strong chance this one will have a big say on debut.

Form & Verdict

Stepped up on 7f turf debut when second over 8.6f at Wolverhampton in November; almost certainly more to come this year but there's lot of stamina on the dam's side of her pedigree so got to be a chance the best of her won't be seen until she tackles 1m2f+.

Stamina on the dam's side (half-sister to St Leger winner Milan) and she found 7f on fast turf an inadequate test on her debut in September; she caught the eye, though, coming home nicely behind Strutting and is open to plenty of improvement.

Has an upwardly mobile profile and her close fourth of eight in novice at Ascot (1m, good to soft; 22-1) ten days ago was a personal best; she may come on for that run too, so she's one to consider on today's handicap debut.

300,000euros yearling who overcame greenness to make a winning debut in a 7f Chelmsford novice three weeks ago; the second gave the form a boost when scoring easily at Newcastle recently; the step up to 1m looks sure to suit but she will likely need a very useful effort to give the weight away, with jockey Sorin Moldoveanu unable to use his 7lb claim in this race.

Second on C&D debut (good) last September but didn't quite match that form when finding one too good again on AW at Lingfield (1m) seven weeks later; looks capable of winning sooner rather than later but this has the potential to be a hot race.

Useful pedigree; made a good start when second of five in novice at Ascot (1m, good) seven weeks ago, giving the odds-on favourite (seventh of eight in Group 1 next time) plenty to think about; sets high standard.
