Despite the slow early pace being against her, Monaleen showed her class to open her account at Wolverhampton.

The market suggested that the Godolphin favourite was going to be hard to beat, but Stevie Donohoe had that one covered all the way and let Monaleen use her stride up the straight.

She had run a stormer on her Lingfield debut and now that she has won, I would hope that she will progress into a decent filly on the turf in the coming months.
