Albaflora in the feature race at Ascot on Saturday in the Listed Buckhound Stakes ran out a superb winner by seven lengths, with the distance and soft ground seeing her give the best run of her career.
The four year old was smart in the majority of her five outings last term, getting off the mark at the first time of asking at Haydock over 10f, seeing off some next time out winners.
She then was slightly upped in trip at York for the Group Three Musidora Stakes where she was a good second behind the Mark Johnston trained Rose Of Kildare.
Stepped up to 1m4f at York she was beaten by better horses, but bounced back to form over the same trip next time out when going down by a head in her first handicap.
She was last seen again going down by a head over 1m6f in a Listed event at Ascot, being beaten by the St Leger second Berkshire Rocco.
Back for her seasonal debut, she travelled into the race well and when Rossa Ryan asked her to go for home she did that and some, taking the event by seven lengths.
Her jockey after the race gave her an extremely glowing review and expects her to come on again for that run.
She has stayers in the family and also horses who appreciate cut in the ground, so this could see her stepped in trip if getting soft ground throughout the term.
