Trained by Ken Condon, the Sir Percy filly was a close third in the Queen Mary behind Anthem Alexander and Tiggy Wiggy at the big meeting last year.

Her subsequent runs at two were nothing special, but she showed promise on her return at Listed level at Bath and was an easy winner of the Kilvington Fillies' Stakes at Nottingham last time.

"She seems very well after it," said Condon. "She didn't seem to have a hard race and I think she'll go to the Ballyogan next.

"What was a little surprising was that she appeared to enjoy the ease in the ground, given she ran so well at Ascot on fast last year.

"We'd been encouraged by Bath, and six furlongs suited her better.

"After the Ballyogan, the Commonwealth Cup would be her target - it looks hot but she deserves a shot at it.

"She does travel well, she's been over to England twice this season and it doesn't seem to bother her."
