Comfortably won a Listed race at Haydock (1m, good to soft) in August and she followed up in the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown (1m, good) last month; has something to find with the two main form players but things have clearly clicked for this 4yo, who was supplemented for this race at a cost of £20,000, and she can give another good account.

Peak form came in winning a soft-ground French 1m Group 2 last summer; respectable in Listed/Group races this term; entitled to run better last time at Sandown when back on soft ground and the tongue-tie tried there is replaced by blinkers, which didn't do wonders for her when tried once in Australia (Group 1 admittedly); can be keen, so the assured strong gallop should at least help.
