Seventh Heaven made a big impression in the summer of 2016 and, with size and scope, appealed as they type to excel in 2017.
Aidan O’Brientawdbaustxbxxf‘s filly failed to make an impact in hr two races as a juvenile but has been beaten just once in five races in 2016 – when all at sea at Epsom and finishing sixth in the Investec Oaks.
She showed that running to be all wrong when powering to victory in the Darley Irish Oaks on her next start and followed up that success with a decisive defeat of Found, her stablemate, in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks.
The daughter of Galileo started 5-4 favourite for the QIPCO British Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot on the back of those wins but never got into contention.
She ran much better when fourth at the Breeders’ Cup and then, in 2017, when chasing home Jack Hobbs in the Longines Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan.
Seventh Heaven followed that with an easy win in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket’s Guineas meeting, after which O’Brien suggested her next race would be the Investec Coronation Cup at Epsom.
However, she suffered a setback and in three subsequent races in the autumn has failed to reproduce her best.
