Won a 7f maiden at Goodwood and looked sure to follow up in a Group 3 at that track but was reeled in close home. Not quite in the same form at Doncaster last time but that was in a Group 2 and has to respected back at this level.
Progressive filly and her fifth at this level at Leopardstown has been franked with the third home having won a Group 1 since at Newmarket. This is her ideal trip and looks to be a leading player.
Off the mark at the 11th attempt in a Cork maiden on Wednesday. Wore a first time tongue tie that is retained but this is a much stronger contest.
All out to land a nursery over 1m at Galway on Wednesday by a short head. Showed a really attitude but that was off a mark of just 77 so plenty more on her plate now. Held by Fancy Feat on earlier run
Won a 7f Galway maiden in heavy ground before beating just one home in a Group 3 at Naas at the same trip. Likely to need plenty of rain to figure.
Stepped up on debut when second at Dundalk when finishing clear of the re-opposing subsequent winner Credenaza. Interesting that connections go for a Listed race instead of a maiden and very likely to have more to come.
Dam won a t 1m and stayed further. Related to four winners at varying distances and interesting that shrewd handler comes here for her debut but will have to be pretty smart to take this first time out.
Her second in a Group 3 at The curragh early last month has been well franked by the winner and third, and not given a hard time when beaten at Doncaster on latest. Better than shown then and just about sets the standard.
Very promising on both starts when in the frame at Galway and Tipperary maidens. Looks sure to win races although this assisgnment commands another big step forward.
