Both starts over 5f, winning easily at Yarmouth (good to firm) then disappointing favourite in Sandown Listed event; may still do better in due course but has enough to prove in this grade upped 2f in trip.

Looked destined for big things when running away with a Yarmouth maiden on her debut last May (5f, good to firm); that hasn't been the case as yet, but she hasn't been seen to best effect in either run this season (both 7f Group 3s on good ground); makes her handicap debut but not obviously well treated.

All four starts have been at the Newmarket tracks; 2-2 as a juvenile, including a soft-ground Group 3 in October, and she stayed on to go down by a neck in 7f Group 3 Nell Gwyn on reappearance; held every chance 2f out in the 1,000 Guineas (1m, good; 13-2) so ending up ninth of 16 was disappointing and she again hung under pressure; plenty to prove after that even though stamina can be found in her pedigree.

Dubawi filly who has reached a useful standard of form over 7f and gives the impression she'll rate even higher over this extra furlong; 2-2 as a juvenile, including Group 3 success on soft going here, then finished a neck second behind Pretty Crystal in good-ground Nell Gwyn on reappearance (beaten favourite but ran satisfactorily while still seeming rather green); likely to build on that trial effort and has to be feared.
