   Magic Lily raced in sixth early and improved one spot after the initial exchanges of this unveiling. Looming large on the outside with three furlongs remaining, the 5-2 joint-favourite was sent to the front approaching the final eighth and surged clear up the hill to account for market rival Mystic Meg (GB) (Camelot {GB}) by an impressive eight lengths. The homebred chestnut is the first scorer for G1 Epsom Oaks and G1 Preis der Diana heroine Dancing Rain (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}), herself a sibling of Listed St Hugh’s S. victress Sumora (Ire) (Danehill), who in turn produced G1 Moyglare Stud S.-winning European champion juvenile filly and G1 1000 Guineas third Maybe (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and MG1SP G3 Silver Flash S. victress Promise To Be True (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). From a family which also features MG1SW sire Dr Devious (Ire) (Ahonoora {GB}) and recent TDN Rising Star attainee Saxon Warrior (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}), she is full to a yearling colt and half to a filly foal by Dubawi (Ire). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £4,528. Click for the Racing Post result or the free catalogue-style pedigree. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
