Form & Verdict

Very experienced in good company in France, two wins and four places from 12 attempts in stakes races; best form last season was over 1m at Deauville, Listed winner and Group 3 second, both on soft ground; not at her best on final three starts; possibly best watched against that background.

Form & Verdict

Maiden winner over this trip at Cork early last season and ran well when second to a useful gelding in Leopardstown Group 3 over 1m; not seen again last year after 10l sixth in the Irish 1,000 Guineas; should be better for her first outing of the season over 6f at Cork.

The clear form pick here, having gone close several times (all 1m); beaten at long odds-on in a match at Ripon latest but level of form suggests she still needs taking very seriously.

Last autumn's two placed efforts have worked out well, not least her clear second to Oaks winner Soul Sister; her comeback effort has been boosted by the third winning since too and it would be a big shock to see her turned over.

Won a Group 3 over 7f on soft at Goodwood last August; was vulnerable over 1m when trained in Britain and same again on stable debut when fading into fifth in a Group 3 event here in March; suited by soft and capable of a big run back in trip now.

Still looked inexperienced when winning both starts last July, both over 1m, a maiden at Killarney and a Cork conditions event only ten days later; form does not amount to enough to win at this level, but she has been given plenty of time to mature and could progress into a high-class filly this season; strong pedigree.
