Making an instant impact when taking a seven-furlong maiden by 10 lengths at Newcastle June 28, Zibelina transferred that style into substance when taking Ascot’s Listed Valiant S. over this trip July 26, and emerged from this competitive affair with her unbeaten record still in place and her reputation enhanced. Breaking best to lead for a few strides, the bay was reined back to race keenly in a wide fourth by Mickael Barzalona, but was in prime position in mid-stretch and was committed on the front end approaching the furlong pole.
