The Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes was beyond her capabilities latest, but she ran well enough prior to that in a fillies conditions race at Kempton (7f); hood applied, but perhaps ideally best suited by rain.
Below-par in blinkers the past twice (now discarded), but was comfortably on top of three other rivals when scoring at Brighton in August (7f, good to firm); needs to bounce back; past course winner (6f, £150,000 juvenile auction).
Won just once in ten starts (7f), but is a progressive filly; neck runner-up to Victory Wave on the July Course (7f, good to soft) mid-summer, and only run down late (25/1) in a Class 2 1m Ascot fillies handicap latest.
Has done the bulk of her racing (in handicaps) on the AW, so difficult to assess her capabilities on turf; beaten just over 2L (fourth) on her first start since April at Chelmsford (1m) 23-days ago.
Now 9lb higher than when recording a second career win last month (1m Salisbury, good to soft), but was only beaten by ¾L on the July Course subsequently (off 3lb lower); chance.
