Form & Verdict
Outclassed in Naas Group 3 after finishing third of six to Windor Castle runner-up Johannes Brahms at same venue; didn't settle all that well but finished off well nonetheless when third of 12 at Dundalk; odds-on runner-up did nothing for the form next time; all runs over 6f but fair chance of staying this trip if she relaxes.

Off the mark in a Leopardstown maiden in August and her best effort yet when fifth in Listed company latest; this looks tough for the grade so will need further improvement back on AW.
