Horse Description:


This filly was impressive in her trial and her early race starts. Beaten for speed early in her first run, she maintained a strong effort to the post, finishing a meritorius fourth. A bad draw saw her settle well back again at Randwick on the 25th of January, with her finishing burst impossible to miss. She ran among the best sectionals of the meeting and another brilliant run in the Champagne Stks at Randwick on the last day of the Randwick Autumn Carnival. She ran a good but luckless third in the Fernhill Sks over 1600m as her leadup, her finishing speed in her leadups being impressive each time. She promises a lot with an obviously bright future as a 3 year-old.
