Stoutly-bred filly from a highly respected yard, she is a half-sister to winners between 7f up to 2m on the Flat. Has already shaped as if a longer trip is required and looks more of a long-term prospect. Qualifies for a handicap mark after this.
Finished last of eight on debut at Lingfield - was soon outpaced and never landed a competitive blow on that occasion. Probably safe to look elsewhere in search of the winner.
Stablemate of Astromerry and represents the same ownership. Bred to get a mile plus, so the trip is fine but the yard's form not quite what it can be just now and others make more appeal.
Cost 200,000 gns, the filly is a full sister to Group 1 winner Johannes Vermeer and Elizabeth Browning (successful at Group 2 level). Stable ticking over very nicely just now and this looks a very feasible opening for the daughter of Galileo.
Cost 47,000 gns and related to several winners both in the UK and the States; posted a fair effort over 7f on debut and created the impression 1m will suit. Should have derived plenty of benefit from the experience and sets the standard just now.
