Raced over 1200m at the Vaal. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: It was a very disappointing run. Keagan de Melo said she travelled for only 500m and had nothing left. Keagan said that he feels that she needs to be given a chance and run on at the finish. Finished 8th.

She was returning from a 25-week break over 1200m at the Vaal. She raced up on the speed, but did not go on with the effort which is disappointing. Jockey Lyle Hewitson reported that she was above herself and over raced in the early stages. She will come on with this outing and will strip a much fitter horse in her next start. Finished 10th.
