Expert Eye filly is first foal of a 1m2f turf/1m4f AW winner (RPR 103), herself a half-sister to winners Night Lagoon (1m 2yo Group 3; dam of King George winner Novellist) and Night Tango (1m3f Listed/German Derby second); 6f barrier trial winner at Naas last month when making all under today's rider in a good time (beating Mythology who finished third in Curragh conditions race last week); likely major player.

Barrier trial winner scored on first two starts under Rules on quick ground, notably Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot; after a break was very disappointing on easier ground in Group 2 Debutante Stakes here in August (fractious and unseated before start); not sure this stamina test will play to her strengths.

Clocked a good time in winning her barrier trial and duly followed up at Limerick en route to winning the Chesham at Royal Ascot, edging out Pearls And Rubies (the pair racing apart); it wasn't the deepest renewal of that Listed race but she sets the standard; softening ground would be a grey area.

Justified favouritism in 14-runner maiden at Limerick (7f, good to firm; hung left through apparent greenness) last week, the market confidence due to her barrier trial performance at Naas (6f) where she made all in a fast time; evidently talented and she's bred to perform well over C&D (sire's Royal Ascot win came in the Jersey).
