Dam was a prolific winner at 6f/7f, including here, and has produced several winners, but this mare was off for over 2½ years after her debut, and showed very little on return/debut for current yard at Windsor last month.
Dual bumper winner, but just fair over hurdles, and failed to beat a rival on her Flat debut at Chelmsford last month. Longer trip may help, and clearly better than she showed there, but easy enough to swerve at this level.
Out of connections' Oaks winner Look Here, and improved from debut when winning a 1m3f maiden at Goodwood last time by 2 lengths from Johnny Kidd. THat wasn't a strong contest, but she ought to have plenty more to offer.
Sea The Moon half-sister to 2005 Deutsches Derby runner-up Night Tango. Slowly away when 1¾L second of 6 to Mannaal in a 1¼m novice at Beverley on debut, and ought to do better given she seemed to need that experience all round.
Closely related to talented middle-distance performer Pivoine from the family of top-notch racemare Islington. Entitled to need the experience on belated debut, but folly to ignore.
By Dubawi out of a full-sister to Derby winner Australia, himself out of the owner's outstanding racemare Ouija Board. Well beaten on Lingfield debut, but sure to have derived plenty of benefit from that initial experience.
Sea The Stars filly purchased for €125,000 as a yearling in September 2017. Dam an unraced half-sister to a number of useful individuals, so unwise to judge her too harshly on a moderate debut effort at Windsor in May.

Illumined (4/6), Hereby (9/4), Rewrite The Stars (16/1), Persepone (16/1), Pensee (20/1), Giving Back (66/1), Bird To Love (200/1)
