Outbacker was no match for the winner over track and trip on her debut but ran well for second and Perfect Persuasion occupied the same finishing position on her introduction at Kempton. Collateral form with Arabian Music suggests Mark Johnston's filly should come out best of that pair in this. Why Not Now was unfancied on her debut and ran accordingly though better is expected from her and also Harry's Summer today. But SAND STORMER cost 130,000 euros as a yearling and a chance is taken that the half-brother to six winners is good enough to score on his racecourse debut.
