Built on a promising debut here when keen to land a 7f heavy ground maiden back here last month; very different ground this time and handicapper has taken no chances with her.

Promise in each of her three runs including when not beaten far in a Group 3 last time out; not sure to appreciate the drop in distance here but she's well bred (full-sister to Johannes Vermeer) and there should be more to come from her.

Won first two starts last summer on quick ground, notably Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot (beating a pair of now 100+ rated rivals); after a break was very disappointing on easier ground in Curragh Group contests but back on better ground can make her mark in handicaps this term.

Defied a market drift to win narrowly on her Tipperary debut (7.5f, soft) before disappointing when seemingly well fancied at 7-2 for a Group 3 at the Curragh; tongue-tie worn for both runs is now missing and she returns with her yard quiet.

Made a very promising debut when winning at Tipperary; double-figure odds and showed traces of inexperience, but ultimately won with a bit in hand from odds-on Andromeda who had previously finished second to Opera Singer at Leopardstown; smart filly in the making.
