Owned by Prince A. A. Faisal, Tundra acquitted herself creditably in two juvenile maidens last season, finishing behind nice prospects on both occasions, and she built on that form on this her seasonal reappearance, picking up well in the hands of Silvestre De Sousa with the front two pulling 14 lengths clear of the third.
The official margin was a neck, although Tundra was perhaps worth a little more than that as the eventual second hung across the track, and the daughter of Bated Breath, who boasts plenty of stamina in the bottom-half of her pedigree, showed an excellent resolution to forge her way to the front inside the final half-furlong.
Roger said: “Tundra is a nice prospect who has worked well this spring. I thought she showed a good attitude here given this was her seasonal reappearance and she had to take a narrowing gap against a colt with more racecourse experience.
“She should continue to progress, she enjoys fast ground, and both her run style and pedigree suggests she should have no problems with at least another furlong.”
