She was having her fourth career start over 1600m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville polytrack this afternoon. She raced from a handy position, but lacked extra in the latter stages. She is looking for further and will be better when ridden with some cover. She is still lightly raced and has plenty of scope. See the replay here.

She was having her third career effort today, but her first on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She showed very good improvement to finish fourth, 2.55 lengths behind the winner. She is carded to race on Wednesday (29 September 2021) over 1900m on the polytrack. See the replay here.
September 5th, 2021
She was having her second run at Hollywoodbets Scottsville over 1400m. She travelled well throughout the race, but when asked for the effort, she never kicked. She will try further next time and we will be hoping to see improvement.
July 18th, 2021
She made her debut over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf track this afternoon. She was very green in running and needed the outing. She will gain from the experience and there should be improvement to come from her. See the replay here.

She has recently joined up with the Duncan Howells stable and appears to have settled in well to her new home. Here she is a few days before she left Robbie Dawsons spelling farm, earlier this month.
