Charles Hill trainee Sydneyarms Chelsea (Ire) (Sioux Nation–Wedding Dress {GB}, by Tamayuz {GB}) ran fourth in Deauville's July 10 Listed Prix Roland de Chambure last time and was back over the same seven-furlong strip to register a career high in Tuesday's G3 Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing, whilst also providing her freshman sire (by Scat Daddy) with a first black-type success. She had previously snagged her May 31 debut at Newbury and posted a fifth contesting Royal Ascot's June 17 G3 Albany S. in her penultimate start. Isolated in third as those in front went clear, the 67-10 chance made continued progress in the straight to launch her challenge passing the furlong marker and was ridden out to subdue the other British raider Ipanema Princess (Ire) (Kessaar {Ire}) before holding the late threat of Roland de Chambure runner-up Terrestrial (Ire) (Kingman {GB}) by 3/4-of-a-length. Ipanema Princess finished a length back in third, 1 3/4 lengths ahead of 'TDN Rising Star' Gain It (GB) (De Treville {GB}), who raced too freely through the early fractions and was a spent force at the business end.

“She is still a big baby, but she's a very nice filly indeed,” commented Ryan Moore. “She had run a very good race over course and distance last time, but she does have a tendency to idle and pull up when she hits the front. She stuck at it today and finished off the race well.”

Sydneyarms Chelsea, half-sister to a yearling colt by Zoffany (Ire), is the second of three foals and lone performer produced by a winning half-sister to Listed Prix des Lilas third Delhi (GB) (High Chaparral {Ire}). The February-foaled bay's second dam Dream Day (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) ran second in the G3 Fred Darling S. and is one of three black-type performers out of Listed Prix de Saint-Cyr victrix and G3 Fred Darling third Capistrano Day (Diesis {GB). Capistrano Day, in turn, is a daughter of GI Beverly Hills H. heroine Alcando (Ire) (Alzao).
