Unbeaten on turf, she’s now 3 wins from 3 runs in that sphere, and looks to be a rapidly improving 3yo filly. Her new Timeform rating of 85, puts her in the well above average category on the Flat. She looks a thorough stayer, by the way she has swooped late, to win all three of her turf starts to date, powering clear in the final furlong of her 1m4f and 1m 6f races, suggesting there’s still more to come, especially when she steps up further in distance. She could easily make up into a Cesarewitch horse either this season or next. Her sire, Farhh has produced the high-class stayers Wells Farrh Go and Dee Ex Bee, amongst others so she should relish the opportunity when we step her up in trip. Her wins have been on good and heavy ground and given these facts, we already have one eye on the idea that she could make up into a very high class hurdler.

Under National Hunt rules, she’d benefit from both the juvenile and mares’ allowances in races over hurdles and she looks tailor made for that job. She’d most likely switch stables at the end of the Flat season to pursue that career and the decision where to send her, would be made by the syndicate members, at the time of any switch; however, races like the Triumph Hurdle, Fred Winter and Mares’ Novices’ Hurdles at The Cheltenham Festival, no less, all come to mind as possible races for her under that sphere. We could just see her powering up the Cheltenham hill.
However, for now, she looks a valuable and exciting Flat racing commodity, who we should get to see enjoy a very productive end of season 2020 under Mark Johnston’s fabulous tutelage.
Entries will be going in for her next race as soon as 1st September and we can’t wait to see her out again. Although we can’t promise, there’s every reason to believe, that she’s one of those typical Mark Johnston, tough, tenacious and talented, middle distance and staying horse who rattle up a sequence of wins. She’s been a slow burner to date, as you’d expect with a pedigree like hers, but she’s very much coming to the boil, right here, right now!
Race Update (12th September): She is now 3/3 on turf after winning at Musselburgh today over 1m 6f - is it too late to supplement for the Arc?!!
