The five-year-old mare will be having her sixth start of the spring and trainer Leon Macdonald has confirmed that she is in good health despite finishing 15th in the Turnbull Stakes two weeks ago.

Prior to the out-of-character performance in the Turnbull Stakes, Southern Speed had shown promising form winning the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes and finishing fourth in the Underwood Stakes.
