19,000gns yearling. Half-sister to 6f juvenile/7f winner Harry Speed, out of a 5f two-year-old winning half-sister to a French 6f two-year-old Listed winner. Interesting that she starts out over this trip. Market check suggested.
Showed some promise here on debut over 7f in February. Not quite at that level last time at Nottingham (1m½f). Steps up further in trip and may pull out a bit more, though looking as though handicaps may prove more fruitful.
Promising debut at Newbury (1m, good to firm) last month, when beaten just over 4L. Can build on that over this trip and could make a bigger impact this time.
Showed a fair bit of promise on debut at Newbury (1m, good to firm) recently, staying on for a 3L fifth. Step up in trip looks positive and she makes the short-list.
Made significant improvement on her debut when reappearing to finish 3L second at Goodwood (1m2f, good to firm) last month. That was good form in the contest of this race and she is now entitled to serious consideration.
Made good improvement for her Nottingham debut, when 25-1 third of seven over this trip at Chelmsford last time. Getting the hang of things and should be heavily involved.
Not sold E195,000 yearling. Sister to winners Homeland (7f at two) and Some Romance (French 1m3f), half-sister to 5f-6f winner Art Connoisseur (inc Coventry/Golden Jubilee). Dam 7f winner at two. Can probably make a good debut. With Good Grac
