- Longines Irish Champions Weekend Fillies' Stakes (Listed) (Registered As The Michael Seely Memorial) (Class 1)
- 7f 192y, Good to Firm
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Won her first three starts, the third win in Listed class at Newmarket but couldn't quite reach that level of form in three subsequent starts last year. Ran well on return in a Group 3 last time and an interesting runner if she stays this far.
Doncaster maiden winner before an excellent run when just denied back at Doncaster in a Fillies' Group 2. Disappointed a month later at Newmarket and showed little on return at Longchamp last month but may improve for the fitting of cheekpieces.
A winner at Goodwood on second start but well beaten in a pair of Group 3 races either side of the winter. First-time hood tried now and others make more appeal.
Impressive winner of her maiden on debut at Goodwood and landed a Group 2 next time over 6f here. Not been at that level of form in two starts since including when a beaten favourite last time but holds a host a Group 1 entries and may do better.
