A $190,000 purchase as a yearling the daughter of Mitole made the perfect start to her racing career when drawing six-and-a-half-lengths clear of her rivals when making all the running in a five-and-a-half-furlong maiden special weight at Del Mar in September. The youngster has been in good form in the mornings since including when delivering a 48.40 four furlong work here recently and is taken to maintain her unbeaten record with her jockey from Del Mar Mike Smith up.

The European raider has shown good form in the UK this year winning three of his four starts since suffering a defeat over this distance on debut at the end of May.
