After a victory on her track debut performing with good style, she started at just 8-1 in the Oaks, disappointing when getting over the line in last place, but showed better form in her next event at Newcastle.

With jockey Philip Robinson aboard, she moved to the head of the field from the start, the race favourite pulling clear going up the straight, staying on strong in the last furlong to defeat runner up Kinky Afro by three and three quarter lengths, followed by Forest Crown a further half a length behind in third place.

Trainer Jarvis was thrilled with her performance stating,"We've always thought highly of her. We walked the track, my assistant and I. We spoke to the jockeys after the first and decided the ground was good enough.

"We had the tongue tie on for the first time and it went to plan. She ran a bit fresh but she did it nicely.

"I'll have to look to see where we go. We've always thought she's a black-type filly. We'll have to find the best programme we can for her.

"It looks as though she's got enough pace for a mile, but I wouldn't be adverse to stepping her up another furlong or two. It could prove a mile might be her best trip; she's by King's Best."
