Reappeared with Group 3 win at Leopardstown (1m, good) and midfield in the Irish 1,000 Guineas subsequently; others have better form and she's not bred to stay this far on the dam's side, but she's by Galileo and it will be no surprise if she improves for the step up in trip; not ruled out for top yard.

Won a Brighton handicap (1m2f, good to firm) in April then went close in the Lingfield Oaks Trial (11.6f, good to firm), behind Rogue Millennium who was subsequently seventh in the Oaks; looks vulnerable in this field.

Won a Group 3 at the Curragh (1m, good) last August on her second start before finishing down the field in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile; reappeared with a narrow Listed defeat at Navan (1m2f, good) and the winner has since made the frame in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Oaks; bred to be suited by this longer trip and she's one to consider.

Won Nottingham maiden (1m, good) last month on her second start and followed up in Listed race at Goodwood (1m2f, soft); kept on really well and the stamina in her pedigree also indicates she'll relish 1m4f; key player.

Won on debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in January and runner-up in a conditions race here (1m, good to firm) in April; kept on for 3l third in Newbury Listed contest (1m2f, good) last month and the first two have firmly franked the form (the winner Nashwa finished third in the Oaks); shapes as though she'll be suited by this step up in trip and she's not discounted.

Easy win on debut at Newbury (1m2f, good) in April and although she was no match for Emily Upjohn when runner-up in the Musidora at York (1m2f, good), the winner may be a superstar in view of her unlucky second in the Oaks; dam was a 1m4f Group 2 winner and this very lightly raced Godolphin filly could take a big step forward now up in trip; firmly in calculations.

Verdict

The step up in trip looks a firm plus for the twice-raced Godolphin filly LIFE OF DREAMS who earns the vote ahead of Sea Silk Road.
