Closely related to Pinatubo, whose brilliant 2yo season included a Royal Ascot win; has created a highly favourable impression with her stylish performances at Newmarket (5f/6f, good; won going away both times) and looks a smart prospect; major contender.

All runs at 6f; runner-up to the subsequent Albany fourth on her debut on the Rowley Mile but then proved a disappointing favourite in the Woodcote at Epsom and again flattered to deceive when only fourth at Salisbury; keen-going tendencies spell some danger now raised in trip.
