Shaped well over inadequate 5f on debut, and improved to win a 6f novice at Kempton last month. Just held on there, but still learning, and will improve further, as entries in Mill Reef and Lowther Stakes would suggest.
Dutch Art filly out of an unraced mare, but third and fourth dams both won the Group 1 Coronation Stakes. Yard has had a very good year with its juveniles, although Lady Aria appears stable's main hope on paper.
Better effort to date when fifth of 11 to Antonia de Vega in a 7f maiden here last month. Weakened after leading that day, and perhaps this drop in trip will see her step up again.
Dandy Man half-sister to 1¼m winner Gustavus Vassa and useful 2-y-o 6f/7f winner Dutch Courage. Cost 75,000 gns as a yearling, and makes some appeal on breeding, so considered if market speaks for her.
Half-sister to winners, but has made no impact in AW contests at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton, and low-grade handicaps beckon in time.
Similar form to debut when fourth of 8 to Red Balloons in novice at Nottingham last time, although drop to 5f probably didn't help there, and she may yet do better.
Invincible Spirit half-sister to 7f-1½m winner Queen of Ice and 1m-1m3f winner Gone Dutch (both useful), out of a 1m-1¼m winner. Represents an excellent yard, and not taken lightly on racecourse bow.
KIngman half-sister to 1m winner Baynunah and 7f/1m winner Tegara out of a well-related 6f winner. Represents powerful yard, although one yet to score with juveniles in 2018.
Kodiac half-sister to useful 5f winner Union Rose and 2-y-o 6f winner Amazing Alice. Trainer/jockey combination 5-22 with 2-y-o's this year, and this filly makes more appeal than most on pedigree.
Fifth on both AW starts to date, hanging right when merely matching debut form at Kempton last time. One for nurseries after another run.
