Great Heavens ran fifth at Haydock in her only juvenile start last September, and stepped up from a May 10 Yarmouth maiden win to add to her illustrious dam's list of black-type performers in this stakes debut. She settled on the lead after an alert exit from the gates and maintained control throughout. Shaken up when threatened by Miss Cato inside the three-furlong marker, the homebred bay kept on strongly under final-quarter urging to easily see off that rival for a career high. "She's a sweet filly, who showed some promise last year," trainer John Gosden told PA Sport
. "I have spaced her races out, and this was an attractive race to run her in. We'll look to move straight into a Group 3 race now, as she doesn't have many miles on the clock." Click for the Racing Post chart. Video, courtesy Racing UK.
