Lope De Vega filly who is a half-sister to a Listed winner. No surprise to see her make her presence felt on debut in a race where most are exposed. Market check advised.
Ran to a similar level than she did on debut when seventh at Naas (1m; good to firm) last time out. This is a slightly easier assignment than the two she has been tasked with so far but she does have questions to answer.
Hasn't progressed since making an encouraging effort over this trip on debut last season. Produced two disappointing runs over 1m since then (both of which have came this year). Place claims back over this trip.
Produced a low-key effort when eighth on debut at Gowran (1m; good to firm). Plugged on well that day but drop back to 7f poses somewhat of a question mark against her.
Drops down to 7f after making her debut over 1m at Navan (1m; good to yielding) 12 days ago. Sent off at 50-1 and ran accordingly. Of much more interest when moving into handicaps.
Shaped more encouragingly on seasonal debut when fourth at Gowran Park (7f; good). That was her first attempt at 7f, but not open to as much improvement as others in the line-up and doesn't hold an overly attractive profile.
Interesting that connections are persevering with this daughter of Mastercraftsman, considering that she now qualifies to run in handicaps. Ran well in maidens, and this is the easiest one she has contested to date so likely to put up a bold show
Finished fifth on debut at Navan (5f; good to firm), where she didn't seem to have a great deal of speed. Thus, this significant step up in trip should be more in her favour and she is a definite player.
Made a fairly disappointing start to her racing career when failing to justify market favouritism on debut at Gowran Park (7f; yielding to soft). Should improve significantly for that experience and likely to be a different proposition now.
