Improved from novice company to make all and win the Group 3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot, and very badly hampered in Duchess of Cambridge Stakes here last month. Should bounce back, and will take plenty of beating.
Won a novice on debut at Lingfield (6f, AW) last month, and just in front of La Pelosa when runner-up in 7f listed race won by Look Around at Sandown on latest outing. May yet do better, and not dismissed.
Improved on debut when making all to land a C&D novice auction last month from a subsequent winner, and should progress again, for all this represents a much stiffer task.
Best effort to date when winning a soft-ground maiden at Goodwood in June, but seems to have had her limitations exposed in stakes races since, finishing sixth of 8 in a Group 3 at Deauville last time.
Beaten just a neck by Main Edition in Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot, and also hampered when in front of that rival here next time. Every chance on best form, but was a little disappointing when third in listed Star Stakes at Sandown on latest outing.
Runner-up in novices at Yarmouth and Ascot on last two outings, and will find a race, but appears to be biting off a little more than she can chew at this level of competition.
Caught the eye on Kempton debut, and built on that when winning muddling C&D novice last time. That form may underestimate her, and intriguing that top trainer is stepping her up in class here.
