Gradually put the pieces together when making a winning debut at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) last month, giving the distinct impression that there was plenty more to come in beating a couple of today's rivals; upped in trip.
Unraced eighth foal by Cape Cross out of the 7f juvenile winner Eilean Ban; cost €15,000 as a yearling and is a sister to the French (1m)/German (7f) winner Emboss; market a guide.
Third foal, and a sister to the 7f winner Noble Masterpiece. Her dam was a winner over 1m4f, so this step up in trip from debut (7f) is a positive move, but she has almost 6L to make up on the now penalised Sootability.
Ran to a similar level in both starts so far (7f), including on turf debut at Thirsk latest, when finishing just over 5L fourth of 13 to Sootability; open to slightly less improvement than both that rival and Divinity.
Unraced third foal by Dunaden out of a well-related maiden dam (a half-sister to Canadian 1m1f Grade 3 winner Alexis); represents powerful owners and a leading trainer, so commands respect on debut in a very winnable looking contest.
