Beat a subsequent winner when off the mark second time out in a 7f maiden at the Curragh (heavy) and returned there for a successful handicap debut (1m, good), getting up in the nick of time to deny Flight Of Fancy; it's likely that she has to find something on that form but her attitude is likeable.
