Lunar Impact (GB): Shouldn’t Have Trouble With 2nd ALW

Four year old filly for Dan Blacker tried the 1st allowance condition down the hill on Saturday for older fillies and mares. Off at 5/2 in a field of 9 and breaking from the rail, she vied for the early lead under Dettori while under moderate fractions of 22.56 and 45.59. She opened up a length after the dirt crossover, then found another gear and had 3 by the 1/8 pole. She went on to win by three in a visually impressive performance. This was just her 7th career start and she has won going long as well. She should have no trouble with the 2nd allowance condition for the high percentage Blacker barn.
