MOTH had a couple of moderate efforts in her first season but her pedigree was always likely to make her a better three-year-old and she has entries in the 1000 Guineas and Oaks. She had Wannabe Better just behind when both were having their second starts and can make a successful reappearance. Sea Shadow has more speed in her pedigree and caught the eye on her debut at Leopardstown in September while Tobann improved with experience last season and should do better this campaign.
