Well supported into 4-6 favoritism for her debut, Kaseema gave punters their only concern as the gates opened, where she handed her rivals an advantage. Not panicked into the race by Richard Hills, she easily made up the deficit before striking the front with 1½ furlongs remaining. Despite showing greenness in front, the $1.1-million KEESEP yearling was in command thereafter and had a comfortable 1 1/2-length margin to spare over Extravagance (Ire) (King's Best) at the line. The dark bay filly is 3/4-sister to top U.S. miler Aragorn (Ire) (Giant's Causeway), MGISW-US & SP-GB, $945,480. She was produced by a full sister to the dam of champion One Cool Cat (Storm Cat). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £5,362.
