Racing Summary
March 29th: Declared for 
Warwick 5f Mf (5)
  • Retained for a relatively cheap price for the TO1 sales (note that in 2004 Tattersalls dropped the select Houghton yearling sales and TO1 sales became the sales for the selected better yearlings).
  • Reviewed at the sales and medium size and ok build in front and lighter behind. Rated 64 and average chance of being competitive at 2yo at her level.
  • Sire has a solid record with 2yos although they tend to be better for development as a group. 
  • However he does get the occasional runners that can compete over 5f and has a record of 4 wins from 11 runs 2003-4. This record is slightly misleading in that 3 of the wins were by one runner (Chateau Istana) and the other win was by Hunting Lodge who then had a long break and returned to win over 8f (he won over 5f after being hopelessly outpaced but winning by default as the tearaways folded).
  • Dam was of reasonable quality but not precocious in line with her pedigree.
  • Trainer used to identify his early season 2yos and often run up winning sequences with them including on debut. Possibly because of lack of quality that hasn't been the case 2002-4. However the earliest debut runners in each season have usually been competitive at low level but needing a debut run to show peak form STO after a short break.
  • In summary an acceptable pedigree but not obviously one for 5f. Sales price and review showed a limited physical type and build behind would not suggest 5f her best distance. Likely to need the race to put any edge on her. Looking at how she performs as an indication of her chances to win STO. Profile [56]
  • March 29th: Warwick
    Post Race
  • Slightly compact, slightly narrow and weak in front although at least has some build to develop. Not fit enough on the day. Received a rating of 64 the same as she had at the sales.
  • Opened 8/1 and drifted to 12/1 before back to 9/1. Performance was below expectations but in line with her fitness and profile on the day. Showed up in leading line to past halfway before fading.

  • Rating of 64 suggests she is limited and an early minor win is probably the target for her owner breeder. Estimate [38]
    April 20th: Lingfield AW
    5f Maiden Fillies'
  • Runs 3 weeks after being not fit enough to really compete on her early debut. That race has looked moderate with only Ooh Aah Camara competing well since (at a 60s rating level).
  • Trainer tends to target STO 'peaks' with the occasional moderate early runner recently. Likely to show good improvement but from a low base and with a lowish 'ceiling'.  Profile [60]
  • May 2nd: Warwick
    5f Maiden Fillies'
  • Non runner at Lingfield and this is her STO run.  Profile [62]
  • May 21st: Haydock
    6f Fillies' Maiden
  • 7/1 3rd favourite at Warwick in a moderate race. 5lb apprentice riding and made use of her experience to track the leader and 1L behind at halfway. Made an effort as the winner pressed on and a minor response to get second and then a slight fade late.  Estimate [57]
  • The form of her second at Warwick LTO is moderate and steps to 6f. Minor improvement. Profile [61]
