Kept on strongly from off the pace to score on her second start at Newmarket (7f, good to firm); found the Group 3 Prestige Stakes far too competitive at Glorious Goodwood; returned to calmer waters for nursery debut; chance.

5lb higher than when making all to score on nursery debut at Newbury (7f, good) in August; respectable in more competitive Class 2 nurseries at Newmarket (7f) and Goodwood (6f) since.

Made all in a four-runner contest at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm), in the process supplying Rebecca Menzies with a first ever juvenile winner; stayed on stoutly when third at Catterick (7f, good to firm) latest; stiffer stamina test should suit.

Five-race maiden; promoted to second in a 7f nursery at Kempton early last month; ran to an equivalent level of form in a Class 2 nursery on turf at Newmarket (7f, good) subsequently - fifth of 15 to Huboor.

Beaten a short-head in a sustained duel with the subsequent conditions stakes second Kalsara at Kempton (7f) in August; reasonably consistent since, without fully seeing out the 1m trip at Chelmsford; others preferred.

Invincible Spirit filly; finished third to the subsequent Newcastle winner Jovial over 6f at Yarmouth in August (work to do with Lasting Legacy on a very strict line through Faakhirah); truthfully her Leicester nursery debut wasn't earth-shattering.

Dragon Pulse filly (£6,000 yearling); shouldn't prove capable of winning a race of this nature judged upon the form that she's shown so far (0-4); 50-1 when finishing 4+L fourth to Tell Me All in a 1m nursery at Ayr (good).

Betting

Forecast

Onassis (15/8), Charming Spirit (7/2), Angel Of Delight (9/2), African Swift (11/2), Dancing Leopard (7/1), Lasting Legacy (10/1), Red Treble (12/1), Bye Bye Euro (12/1), Miss Villanelle (16/1)

Verdict

A tricky nursery in which the eye is automatically drawn to the likes of Angel of Delight (Hugo Palmer), Miss Villanelle (Charles Hills) and Charming Spirit (Roger Varian). However, you discount the less fashionable northern-based trainers Rebecca Menzies (Red Treble) and Chris Fairhurst (LASTING LEGACY) at your peril. The former promises to relish this stiffer stamina test after staying on strongly at Catterick (third), while the selection looked to be a filly of real substance when springing a 50-1 shock in a recent C&D maiden. With that form receiving a timely boost since, she's worth chancing in a much deeper race at potentially rewarding odds.
