Form & Verdict
Sea The Moon filly who made a promising start at Newbury (third of seven) last month and built on that when going close in another 1m2f novice at Bath (good to soft) three weeks ago; was strong at the finish in that race and that form puts her firmly in the picture here; interesting contender.

Promising here on debut and went close in another novice at Bath (strong at the finish) next time; 4-5 and went on after halfway when winning well in a six-runner maiden at Ffos Las (good to soft) three weeks later; shapes as if move up to 1m4f will help with further improvement, so should go well.

Has been generally progressive in her four starts and her latest sixth of 13 at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) was behind a subsequent Listed winner; this well-bred filly is still unexposed but she needs to find more improvement.

Consistent rather than progressive over 1m4f and 1m2f on turf and AW this year and will probably need extra to win now tackling this trip back on Polytrack.

Kept on well for close/clear second behind useful rival on debut (1m1f, good to firm) in May; not seen again until a slightly disappointing effort on good to soft six weeks ago; hood added for AW debut; can do better but others have achieved more; withdrawn after getting upset in the stalls at Lingfield last month.

Form & Verdict
Both runs have been over 1m2f at Newmarket (good); finished last of ten on his debut in April but he left that form miles behind when going close on the July Course two months later; left Jane Chapple-Hyam for 130,000gns since; returns from another break but he just about the standard and is open to more progress for new yard.

Still unexposed, having raced just four times; hasn't looked entirely straightforward for new yard the last twice but may improve for the addition of cheekpieces and looks interesting on return from break.
