Has won both starts in novices since debut, making all to score over 6f at Salisbury last time. Equally effective at this trip, and every chance of bringing up the hat-trick despite top weight.
Won 5f maiden at Bath in May, and similar for when runner-up in novices at Goodwood and Chepstow since. Not really progressing, though, and ran poorly over C&D last time.
Built on debut promise when winning Hilary Needler Trophy at Beverley, and a bit out of her depth in Queen Mary at Royal Ascot next time. Should bounce back, and shortlisted here.
Best effort to date when winning novice at Hamilton in late May, although put in his place in a stronger event at Beverley last time, and others look more progressive.
Shaped quite well on debut for Joseph O'Brien at Dundalk, but has not gone on as expected since. Perhaps switch to new yard will have a positive effect, but opposable on balance of form.
Improved on debut form when third at Kempton over 6f last month, but seemed to find drop to 5f against her at Windsor last time, and more needed now.
