Fourth on debut in a 5f Listed race at Naas; built on that with emphatic 5l course maiden win over 6f; left a definite impression that she can stay 7f when second to Relief Rally in the Lowther; sets a good standard on that form, since the York winner had previously won a valuable sales race at Newbury and is potentially a Group 1 filly.

Left debut run (6f, good to firm) behind him when going close at Kempton (7f, AW) and again second at Epsom (7f, good to firm) a fortnight ago; improvement needed on nursery debut but he's in good hands to continue to progress.

Stepped up on his debut when second of eight at Kempton two weeks ago, still looking in need of the experience (jinked right at the cutaway); this track will require him to stay focused but he's one of the likelier form candidates.
